Best Packaging is graduating to a much larger, freestanding facility in Chicago’s West suburbs! Our new repair shop and administrative headquarters will be located at 901 W. Lake St. in Melrose Park, IL. The building features 18,000 square feet of warehouse space, in a clear span structure, uninterrupted by supporting beams. (My facilities manager tells me that’s a big deal.) Geographically, Melrose Park is centrally located amongst our most frequent customers and its access to major routes will benefit our emergency repair response time.
Best Packaging is using this opportunity to ensure all staff members have the tools they need to offer the most support. Our new packaging equipment repair shop will feature two drive-in dock doors, one overhead door, ventilated spray booth, a dedicated fabrication/welding area and an equipment demonstration/photography studio. Our administrative staff will enjoy a spacious atrium with skylight, multiple conference areas, executive office suites and a lounge for entertaining our guests. Not to mention, 6,000 square feet of office space to accommodate future growth! Our sales department may not get the virtual golf simulator they were hoping for, but we do have plans for a fitness and recreation area.
Refurbishing and updating our new property will be a gradual process, but our team sees a lot of potential in the Melrose Park location. Stay tuned for updates in the coming months as we grow into our new space!
