Investing in new real estate has always been a tell-tale sign of a growing business and that's just what Metro Exhibit Corporation (MEC) has done by purchasing a building and moving their corporate headquarters into the new space at 1308 Marquette Dr.
The 40,000 square foot facility easily contains all of their fabrication and construction capabilities along with a full design suite, engineering, print production, and extensive storage space for the large client base they service from this location.
"We are pleased MEC has chosen Romeoville for their corporate headquarters. We look forward to working with them as they continue to expand their business," said Romeoville Mayor John Noak.
Brian Phebus, MEC's owner and Tom Bacha, MEC's President could not be more excited to show off the new location. They created the office space to not only demonstrate MEC's space planning and design prowess, but it also utilizes materials and techniques often represented on the exhibit show floor so the office doubles as a show room to visitors and guests.
This is a major move toward the future for a company that began with 2 employees and a telephone in the basement of the Phebus household. "We are all proud to be part of a company that continues to grow and evolve year after year" said Bacha "and I know Brian's Dad who started the business 30 years ago, would be most proud!"
"Buying the building is part of our long term investment plan" said Phebus. "The entire company is energized. The best way to predict the future is to create it - and that's what we plan on doing".
