Sysmex America, the wholly-owned U.S. subsidiary of Sysmex Corporation of Kobe, Japan, said it will lease 162,000-square-feet of additional space in Lincolnshire and 147,000-square-feet in Buffalo Grove. The company will begin to occupy the new space in 2012 while retaining its current offices and manufacturing plant in Mundelein.

Sysmex, which provides medical diagnostic testing equipment and information systems technology and services hospitals and health care networks, reference laboratories and physicians offices worldwide, currently has about 700 employees in its Mundelein office.

"Sysmex America's decision to further expand into the state of Illinois retains hundreds of jobs and creates new ones in the area," said John Kershaw, president & CEO of Sysmex America. "As such, we are especially pleased that our company can continue to support the state of Illinois' economic development growth through job retention and creation. We look forward to continuing to call Illinois our home."

The multipurpose industrial building in Buffalo Grove will begin operations in the first quarter of 2012. It will include a repair depot, a training production studio and other functions. Sysmex will begin occupying the Lincolnshire location in summer 2012. Both locations require interior construction and interior design work prior to occupancy.

Private entities involved in Sysmex America's expansion project include Colliers International, a global real estate services company; CB Richard Ellis, broker; Lincolnshire Bridge, Aptakisic Creek Corporate Park, and Bridge Development Partners, properties' landlords; and Takenaka Corp., an architectural, construction and design firm.
