McNICHOLS Debuts Expanded Warehouse and Office Facility

The McNICHOLS Chicago Metals Service Center, a 112,000-square-foot warehouse and office facility, has held its public debut during a two-day Open House.

The Metals Service Center began operating at 2200 Arthur Ave. in Elk Grove Village in July 2016, after relocating from Des Plaines, where it had operated for 10 years. About 75 associates serve customers from the expanded location that serves the Chicago region and Midwest marketplace.

McNICHOLS hosted customers during four set times, allowing customers to choose from a breakfast and tour from 7 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. or a lunch and tour from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on either day. They were also welcome to visit at other times throughout the two-day event at their convenience.

On the first evening, McNICHOLS welcomed company associates and their families to a BBQ that included entertainment. A ribbon-cutting ceremony took place, with city officials and other community members in attendance.

The event also commemorated 65 years in business for this company that is a provider of “Hole Products,” including McNICHOLS Perforated and Expanded Metals, Wire Mesh and Designer Metals, as well as a line of Metal and Fiberglass Grating and Flooring products.

“Forty-two years ago, my grandfather and father put down stakes in Elk Grove Village,” says McNICHOLS President Scott McNichols. “We have seen growth over that period of time and are blessed to be back in the Village serving customers.”

McNichols said the company was grateful to the community for the welcome “home” after a 10-year run in Des Plaines. “This facility will help us serve customers like never before,” he states. “It is difficult to describe how encouraged we are about the future. I cannot think of a better city to operate from than this one.”

McNICHOLS has had a presence in the Chicago region since 1975, when it opened its third Metals Service Center at the corner of Pratt and Lively Boulevards in Elk Grove Village. The company expanded the office and warehouse multiple times before relocating to a 78,000-square-foot space in Des Plaines in 2006 prior to returning to Elk Grove Village in 2016.
