Elk Grove Village has Everything a Manufacturing Company Needs, Including Other Manufacturing Companies

Wangen America is an independently-run subsidiary of Pumpenfabrik Wangen, a German pump manufacturer with a history spanning over 50 years. With more than 250 employees worldwide, Wangen America specializes in supplying industrial pumps for various applications, including food and beverage manufacturing, cosmetics production, and wastewater treatment.

In addition to their core offerings, Wangen America has witnessed significant growth in the biogas sector. This renewable energy source involves converting food waste, agricultural residues, and other organic materials into methane through anaerobic digestion. The captured methane can be further processed and utilized as renewable natural gas or compressed natural gas, contributing to sustainable energy solutions.

Wangen America benefits significantly from its strategic location in Elk Grove Village. Being situated just two miles away from O'Hare International Airport, the company enjoys the advantage of quick and convenient access to international shipments. Instead of waiting for extended periods for deliveries from their German parent company, they can now receive products promptly and efficiently, allowing for faster assembly and shipping processes.

The proximity to a diverse range of businesses and suppliers in Elk Grove Village is another advantage for the company. This close-knit community fosters a cooperative atmosphere where neighboring companies readily help each other out. From finding local custom packaging solutions to accessing shipping companies and even buying supplies like screws, nuts, and bolts, they can conveniently source everything they need without the hassles of extensive searching or delays. General Manager of the Elk Grove Village location, Andrew Wood, stated,

“With all of the crating, test shipping, and supply companies that Elk Grove has, you're hard pressed not to find what you need right here in town.”

The Village's responsive and supportive services further contribute to the company's smooth operations. This village support, along with a strong sense of camaraderie and mutual respect within Wangen America's team fosters a positive work environment. Despite being a small group, they take great pride in their high-quality products that play a crucial role in various everyday applications. The company's passionate and dedicated team members enjoy their work, making it feel more like a close-knit family rather than a conventional workplace.

The Wangen America team showed this off recently during an Ambassador Visit organized by Elk Grove Village’s business development team. This visit offered an excellent opportunity to showcase their products and raise awareness about Wangen America’s offerings and high-quality workplace within the local community. The engagement with Village officials and representatives opens doors to potential collaborations and support for business growth.
