Fabric Images®, Inc., recently announced the expansion and relocation of its headquarters in Elgin, Illinois. The newly-built facility will provide the increased logistical and fabrication capacity that is essential to the growing global demand for printed tensioned fabric architecture and displays produced in the marketplace.
“From small to extreme projects, today’s market requires a faster and more economic turn-key solution,” said Marco Alvarez, president and CEO of Fabric Images. “Our new, larger facility will provide the platform necessary to excel in that arena. (Customers) are asking more of us as a partner and supplier of printed tensioned fabric displays, and to assist in a wider variety of services and offerings. To accommodate these requests requires a dynamic environment with creative, well-planned solutions and a production facility that is able to provide the resolution.”
The expansion of the headquarters includes a new 200,000-square-foot facility that will house sales, design, research, engineering, production, powder coating and logistics, along with the latest technologies required for enhanced fabrication.
“The expansion of our Elgin plant is part of our overall operational repositioning,” said Gordon Hill, executive vice president of Fabric Images. “By expanding our office and production facility, we can realize operational efficiencies that will improve costs and shorten our sale to delivery cycle, effectively enhancing our long-term solution for providing quality service. Our new facility will be equipped with state-of-the-art equipment that will allow for a wider range of new offerings for our clients.”
Fabric Images currently employs roughly 125 full-time workers in Elgin, Illinois and in the domestic United States, and is continuing to expand. In the past year, the company has also added manufacturing operations in Mexico and Italy to meet the needs of Central America and Europe. In the future, Fabric Images plans to expand operations to Asia, South America and the Middle East.
