Dealers, end-users, and members of the trade press got their first glimpse of Hyundai Wia’s new headquarters and technical center in Itasca, Ill., Monday, March 17. Twenty active machines were on display and ready for demonstrations at the new facility.
The centralized location is designed to provide greater access for customers than the previous site in New Jersey, the company says, adding that the move has greatly enhanced training opportunities for both sales personnel and machine operators. The ribbon-cutting ceremony and celebration enabled guests to mingle with Hyundai Wia executives and staff. Corporate representatives included Jun-Mo Yoon, president and CEO, and In-Sig Lee, senior vice president and CFO—both of the Hyundai Wia Corp.—and “Brad” Bok Sup Lim, CFO of the Hyundai Wia America Corp., among others.
Confetti canons sent streamers soaring across the main hall as Hyundai Wia executives cut the ribbon introducing the new facility.
