Overton Chicago Gear Expands Plant Space

OCG is once again planning for the future with the acquisition of a 50,000 sq. ft. facility located at 50 W. North Ave., Lombard, IL. The additional facility (just 5 minutes from their headquarter location) gives Overton the ability to expand machine capacity from their current Addison and Chicago locations. The plant has (3) bays with 21 ceilings and will be the home for a state-of-the-art hard gear finishing cell, nital etch line and full inspection capabilities. Another full bay will be the home for an expanded gearbox assembly and repair facility with 25 ton crane capacity. The additional space is planned to be fully operation by Jan. 2011.
