Hwacheon Machinery America (HMA) moves into a new technical center in the Chicago suburb of Lincolnshire, Illinois, on July 15. Purchased and remodeled by Hwacheon, the building will provide larger quarters for training, a showroom for machine demonstrations, service engineering, spare parts stocking and applications engineering, says Michael Huggett, president of HMA.

The company plans an official grand opening of the facility on September  7, the day before IMTS 2014 opens its doors. This event will be attended by company officials, dealers and customers as well as Hwacheon Machinery staff.

“We are very excited to move into new space purpose-designed to help us support our growing customer base here in the Americas,” Mr. Huggett says. “It is ideally located to provide that support, from training through service and applications engineering.” The company also purchased land adjacent to the tech center that can be used for future expansion.
