Brandt expands headquarters
The US agrochemical company, Brandt (Springfield, Illinois), is starting an expansion of its headquarters to meet expected future demands. The 15-month project will expand the 26,000 sq ft (2,415 m 2) facility by 22,000 sq ft. The company moved into the building in 2007 and it was specifically designed to allow for expansion by adding wings at either end, Brandt points out. “We didn’t expect to out-grow the building in such a short amount of time, but we are experiencing growth throughout the entire company,” says president and CEO Rick Brandt.
