Signode, a global manufacturer of innovative packaging and warehouse automation solutions, announced it will open a global flagship facility for its Automation and Packaging Technologies (APT) platform. The 360,000 square foot facility is located at 1600 Central Avenue in Roselle, Illinois. The organization will relocate its APT operations that are currently based in Glenview, Illinois.

The new facility will encompass manufacturing for a broad portfolio of equipment and also will include a world-class customer experience center. The facility also will house division leadership, sales, customer support, marketing, product management, innovation, research & development, application engineering, operations, and reliability services.


The new 100,000+ sq ft customer experience center will feature meeting space, a showroom for product demonstrations, a certified test laboratory to optimize packaging designs, and a training space for Signode's customer base and employees.

"We are very excited for Signode to join the Roselle business community and look forward to seeing the value our community can provide as the new home for its APT headquarters," said Roselle Mayor David Pileski. "Forging strong partnerships with companies like Signode is important to us to ensure our business districts are vibrant and evolving to meet the needs of the 21st century."

"We are looking forward to the growth opportunities that this new Signode flagship facility will bring for our APT team members," said Byron J. Paul, Group President at Signode. "The facility is well-suited to meet our growth needs for innovation and manufacturing. It will house our new customer experience center to showcase our capabilities and extensive set of solutions, while providing our employees with a modern office environment and manufacturing facility."

"We're in the process of mobilizing the renovation of the facility to install the infrastructure needed for our manufacturing operations and to make our vision for the customer experience center a reality," said Eric Christensen, Senior Vice President of Packaging Technologies, Signode.
