Sept. 27, 2018 - Rand-Whitney held a ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate the completion of a 45,000 square-foot addition to the company's headquarters facility in Worcester, Massachusetts.

In addition to adding a warehouse to the site, the company upgraded the look of the overall campus. Therefore, after completing the warehouse, the team began work on improvements to the adjacent building that houses graphic design for Rand-Whitney located at 207 Greenwood Street. The building's fašade received a facelift with renovated windows, LED lighting and a new exterior paneling system painted in the signature Rand-Whitney Blue.

In addition, the headquarters building received a complete makeover with efficient store-front windows and a composite/insulated metal panel combo. Offices, common areas and conference rooms were also updated along with new stand-up desks for the staff, also finished in the company's signature color.

Lastly, the main lobby was refurbished with modern interior finishes in keeping with the company's branding.

Besides adding 45,000 SF of space, overall improvements produced an updated and consistent design across the campus. The increased plant infrastructure will also give them the ability to purchase more capital equipment, maximize their production and grow their capabilities and offering, which is a win-win for their employees and customers.
