Elk Grove Village, IL — Hyundai Construction Equipment Americas, Inc. (HCEA) is relocating its headquarters from Elk Grove Village, Illinois, to Norcross, Georgia. The project represents a $10 million investment in the community.
Hyundai President John Lim says, “Our decision to move to Georgia was an easy one. We needed a facility that was strategically located not only for access to markets in the Southeastern United States, but to the rest of North America, and to South and Central America. Our new headquarters will be ideal as we grow our business for the future.” Kirk Gillette, vice president adds, “HCEA chose to relocate its Americas headquarters from its previous facilities largely because of the area’s resources, tax incentives, educated workforce and overall business environment.”
The 217,000 sq. ft. facility will be home to the company’s American headquarters and will also contain a warehouse, employee training center with classrooms and multiple conference rooms. Sometime in the next 3-4 years, a manufacturing facility will be built on the site.
HCE was formed in 1991 to focus on the needs of Hyundai’s construction equipment market and currently offers 17 models of crawler excavators, 4 models of wheeled excavators, 6 models of mini excavators, 6 models of wheel loaders, 3 models of skid steer loaders, and 117 models of forklift trucks. HCE currently operates a production facility in Ulasan, Korea, and expects the new location in Georgia to make its markets in the Americas more accessible.
