Doubling of production area at the US location in Aurora, Illinois – Thermamax systematically increases local content in the USA

Since the beginning of February 2017, expansion at the Thermamax, Inc. location in Aurora, Illinois has continued. The target remains to increase the amount of local added value and thereby further improve the service to customers in the area.

 

The production space at the Aurora works will be virtually doubled from 25,000 sq.ft. to 47,000 sq.ft. In the new hall, Thermamax will concentrate on high-temperature insulations for applications in the off-highway and marine market sectors.
Ongoing expansion of the US production site is an important strategy and a prerequisite for further growth of the company in the USA. It allows the degree of local content and vertical integration to be systematically increased, meaning the best possible exploitation of the North American market. Customer requirements to benefit include faster throughputs, reduced transport costs, plus the advantage of products “Made in USA”.
