Gripple Inc. in Aurora will officially be celebrating the grand opening of their newly expanded facility on Wednesday, June 8.

Employees, customers, and special guests will be in attendance to honor the occasion, and to experience the state-of-the-art manufacturing facility, office space, training, and conference areas.


The grand re-opening will also be attended by several employees of Gripple Ltd. in the UK, including Hugh Facey, the founder of Gripple.

"This two-year expansion project has allowed us to increase our manufacturing capacity with additional automated machinery built by Gripple, and bring together our rapidly-increasing internal support staff all under one roof," said Jonathan Palmersten, CEO. "Our company culture is second to none, and this new building is a great gift to our employees, and helps keep us on pace with Gripple's continued growth worldwide."

Gripple manufactures products for the construction, agriculture, and infrastructure industries, and is proud to be an employee-owned company.

"Gripple has had a home in this area since 1990, and we're happy to have our expanded facility in the Aurora, Illinois community," said Jonathan. "We're excited that this expansion will allow us to serve our customers better and hire more employees from the area."
