MACHESNEY PARK (WREX) – A Machesney Park business breaks ground on a new expansion, which will make it the largest employer in the village.
Hennig is expanding next to its current location on Alpine Road. The new building will provide backup power to places like hospitals and supermarkets. Dietmar Goellner, Hennig’s President and CEO, says this is the biggest expansion in the company’s history and it plans to hire up to 70 more employees in the next two years.
“The community has blessed us,” said Goellner. “Our customers have stood behind us. Now we want to be able to give back, create more jobs to allow people to be able to support their families and at the same time together working with our customers we want to make them successful.”
Construction is expected to finish by May or June of 2020.
