ELK GROVE VILLAGE -- Krusinski Construction Co. has completed the ground-up construction of a new corporate headquarters, showroom and warehouse for Yamazen Inc. at 111 NW Point Blvd., Elk Grove Village.
Yamazen Inc. is a specialized global trading company with a strong focus in the distribution of computer-programmed machine tools and other industrial and engineering equipment.
The two-story, 138,000-square-foot facility sits on 7 acres off I-90 and features 50,000 square feet of finished offices, conference rooms and related employee space, including a dramatic entryway. Additional space in the building includes a 50,000-square-foot warehouse; two sales, demonstration and training areas, including a 17,000-square-foot turnkey robotics center and a 13,000-square-foot sampling and demonstration center; a 6,500-square-foot parts and tooling center; and parking for 137 vehicles.
Previously, before Yamazen acquired the land for its new building, nearly two-thirds of the site was the pond near the entryway to the business park. During site work, approximately 27,000 cubic yards of clay fill and 2,207 aggregate piers were used to prepare the site.
"This was a fascinating and rewarding project, from the extensive sitework required to the diverse elements and functions of this class A corporate headquarters and showroom facility, to the weather challenges in early spring 2020," says Michael Metz, vice president of Krusinski Construction. "In the end, the Krusinski Construction team, including many talented subcontractors, created a dramatic facility for Yamazen."
