BUFFALO GROVE, IL-Plexus Corp. signed a 15-year lease to occupy a 135,000-sf build-to-suit office, manufacturing and assembly facility on a 10-acre site at the Millbrook Business Center located at 2400 Millbrook Dr. in north suburban Buffalo Grove, IL.

The facility will be comprised of a two-story 25,000-sf office portion and a one-story 110,000-sf manufacturing, processing and warehousing section. Also being included on the site is surface parking for 450 cars. Construction is scheduled for completion in the third quarter of 2001. Libertyville-based Randall Bees Architect Inc. will design the project.

Plexus is utilizing the last industrial development site in the 72-acre mixed-use park. Plans for the final phase of development include the Plexus building; a five-story, multi-tenant 142,000-sf office building; and a two-story, multi-tenant, speculative 67,000-sf office building. When fully developed by the end of 2001, Millbrook will have seven facilities totaling 1.1 million sf–four office buildings and three industrial structures.

Plexus plans to relocate approximately 125 employees from its current printed circuit board manufacturing location in Wheeling, IL. Over time, Plexus plans to add up to 200 new employees to its new location in Buffalo Grove.

Headquartered in Neenah, WI, Plexus offers product development and design services, material procurement and management, prototyping, assembly and testing services for electronic and computer manufacturers.
