According to Vasani, the company quickly outgrew their original space in Streamwood.

Their new headquarters on the 500 block of Vermont Street is 44,000 square feet.

Palatine Mayor Jim Schwantz said he was proud Aimtron chose to build in Palatine.

"They could go anywhere they want not only in the U.S.A. but in the world," Schwantz said. "(When) a world-class headquarters for a company such as Aimtron, stays here in the village of Palatine, is something tremendously exciting for us."

State representatives Tom Morrison and Elaine Nekritz, also attended the ceremony.

Vasani said he credits their dedication to high quality products to their success.

"Our strategy is to use only state of the art, high-speed, robotic equipment which will allow us to compete with offshore manufacturers," Vasani said. "This allows us and our valued customers to continue to say the product is still proudly 'made in the U.S.A.'"

In addition to the Palatine headquarters, Aimtron also operates a sales office in Phoenix, Arizona and a plant in Vadodara, India.
