A worldwide manufacturer of machinery for the plastic, rubber and recycling industries has opened a new facility in West Chicago.
Avian USA Machinery, LLC, opened its 35,000-square-foot North American headquarters at 1901 Powis Court this spring. A grand opening celebration with guests from China, Japan, Mexico and local companies was held last week.
"I think it's just representative of the business growth that is taking place in our community," John Said, the city's director of community development, said of Avian's decision to move to West Chicago. "I believe it's a wonderful adaptive reuse of this facility."
