The new headquarters of Bürkert USA will now be officially inaugurated at the beginning of April.
The company focuses primarily on individual customized system solutions – also at the new headquarters of Bürkert USA in Huntersville, North Carolina. On April 3rd, 2017 Bürkert will host a grand opening celebration at their 173,000 square-foot building complex designed by WHN+ Architects. In late 2016, the facility garnered an Eagle Award for the design-build of the project by Edifice General Contractors from the ABC (Associated Builders & Contractors) of the Carolinas.
A 43.7kW solar farm comprised of 366 panels on the roof supplies power directly to the facility and transfers power back to the grid during low usage. To reduce lighting needs, four separate bays of skylights plus 14 Solatubes provide natural daylight to employees in the climate controlled production and warehouse area. The manufacturing area includes two separate CNC (Computerized Numerical Calculation) machine shops to produce manifolds. Valve systems are assembled and tested in Bürkert’s class 10,000 Clean Room.
As part of the April 3rd celebration, local politicians and business partners, employees and customers will attend the official Grand Opening of the new Bürkert USA headquarters.
