Fasteners manufacturer and distributor Optimas Solutions announced it is moving its global corporate headquarters to Wood Dale, Illinois, where it will consolidate into one of its existing manufacturing facilities. The company is vacating its HQ in Glenview, Illinois. Both towns are in the Chicago metro area and about 30 minutes apart.
By moving to its existing manufacturing facility, the company said it “will cut costs and improve operational efficiencies as internal teams and talent will be better positioned in the best interests of business. The move is also being driven partially by increased demand for products and services and underutilized space at the Wood Dale plant.”
“There are a number of good reasons to make this move in terms of cost savings, greater efficiencies, maximizing space and integrating teams,” said Marc Strandquist, CEO of Optimas. “But just as important is the need to further build a team concept and culture of winning that can only come about by having everyone housed under one roof. We learned a lot about our people over the past year, especially given COVID-19, and how we pulled together as a team. This move will strengthen that team concept and further build a culture of winning.”
