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.
