Screen Americas has completed its new facility in Elk Grove Village, Illinois, and announced its official relocation date as February 15, 2021.
The new facility spans 48,000 sqft, of which more than 14,000 is dedicated to the Screen Inkjet Innovation Center, where the customers will be able to engage in a hands-on experience with the company’s technology that serves high-speed commercial, publishing, direct mail, transactional, label and carton, and flexible packaging markets. The center will also showcase Screen Americas’ pre-press workflow solutions and its Truepress digital inkjet series.
‘Seeing Screen’s printing technology integrated with our partners’ will ensure that our customers are receiving the right solution,’ said Ken Ingram, president of Screen Americas. ‘With our growth over the last few years, the new facility will allow us to continue to expand and meet our customers’ needs now and well into the future. When the future arrives, SCREEN will already be there. We are looking forward to hosting printers in our Inkjet Innovation Center when the time is right.’
The new facility also consists of a complete warehouse, service center, and extensive office and meeting space for Screen Americas’ staff.
‘My colleagues and I are very excited to settle into our new surroundings. Technology Park is expanding. We’re looking forward to being a part of that expansion,’ commented Mark Schlimme, vice president of marketing for Screen Americas.
The Elk Grove Village location marks the third home in the United States for Screen Americas. Initially based in California in 1967, the company moved to Rolling Meadows, Illinois, in 1975. The need to move to a much larger facility in Elk Grove Village is reflected in the growing demand for digital inkjet printing.
