Matcon Group Limited announced today the relocation of its USA Operation from Sewell, New Jersey to Elmhurst, Illinois. The Elmhurst facility is home to The Fitzpatrick Company. Both Matcon and Fitzpatrick are companies within the IDEX Material Processing Technologies (MPT) Platform; the combined location will form an IDEX MPT Center of Excellence.
Matcon will open the doors to its new US location in early May 2014 which will feature a 5,000 square foot state-of-the-art testing facility. There will be a series of Open House events planned to run in parallel to the 2014 Process Technology Expo or PTXi (www.powdershow.com)from 6-8th May. IDEX MPT Companies Matcon, Quadro and Fitzpatrick will be exhibiting at PTXi (Booth 1234).
In commenting upon the relocation, Matcon Managing Director Charles Lee said: “We are committed to growing our business significantly in the USA and believe that the relocation positions us best to achieve this growth. Many of our key customers are located within easy reach of O’Hare International Airport, which is less than twenty minutes from the Elmhurst location. Additionally, we feel that with the formation of an IDEX MPT Center of Excellence, we can leverage resources to best serve our customers.”
