Accommodating its continued growth, EDE Corp. is adding a 37,000 square-feet building next door to its current Chicago facility. An exhibit company founded in 1979, EDE’s project is scheduled to be completed by November 2013.
According to Greg Tivadar, vice president of EDE, the expansion aims to benefit clients by “allowing EDE to operate even more efficiently and accommodate the growing amount and scale of projects,” adding that he looks forward to utilizing the space to prepare exhibits for tradeshows in 2014.
Focusing on warehousing to implement increased energy efficiency and logistical management to keep overhead costs down, the new building will house a dedicated exhibit preview area. With dimensions 100’ wide x 370’ long x 30’ tall, clients can preview tradeshow exhibits of any size with greater flexibility. Plans are also underway to repurpose a portion of the existing warehouse to expand fabrication shops.
EDE also added to its team with the hiring of new sales, account management and marketing staff members.
