The village of Lincolnshire has issued a news release confirming a report in Crain's Chicago Business that Zebra Technologies Corp. is consolidating offices in Vernon Hills and Lincolnshire at a new location in Lincolnshire.
The company is leasing a 290,000-square foot, Class A office building at 3 Overlook Point in the 330-acre Lincolnshire Corporate Center, managed by Van Vlissingen & Co., for its corporate, international and engineering offices.
Zebra is currently headquartered in Lincolnshire's Millbrook Business Center and has engineering, repair services and printer manufacturing operations at 333 Corporate Woods Parkway in Vernon Hills.
This consolidation increases Zebra's presence in Lincolnshire by 800 jobs, the release said.
"Zebra's move reinforces the company's commitment to Lincolnshire and is a testament that Lincolnshire is the place to do business in the Chicago region," Lincolnshire Mayor Brett Blomberg said in the news release, which was issued Friday.
"The village is excited about Zebra's decision to grow its corporate and international presence in Lincolnshire and looks forward to welcoming the expanded company and its employees to our ever-growing business community," he said.
The announcement came after an extensive search for a new facility by the manufacturer of radio frequency identification and bar code printing and reading equipment.
"We are thrilled to welcome a company of the stature of Zebra Technologies to the list of companies choosing to locate their corporate headquarters within the development," Chuck Lamphere, CEO of Van Vlissingen & Co., said in the news release.
Other companies with corporate headquarters in Lincolnshire include Aon Hewitt, Sysmex, Klein Tools, Interior Investments and Kubota Engine America.
