Washington Street facility in Chicago Heights, Illinois adds 230,000 square feet of domestic production, assembly and warehousing space on 13 acres for rapidly growing custom wood and metal manufacturer.

Morgan Li, a custom fabricator of fixtures, furniture, and graphics for innovative retail and hospitality brands around the globe, has further expanded after completing the purchase of a 230,000 square foot facility in Chicago Heights, Ill. This strategic purchase comes on the heels of a strong recovery in 2021 and will provide the company space to expand, invest, and create dozens of new jobs in the coming years.

Morgan Li acquired the 13-acre site, located at 1001 Washington Street, after years of constant growth and expanded use of the facility since 2015. The company completed the purchase of this 230,000 square foot space in late 2021, nearly doubling its total square footage under ownership and providing space for expansion and investment.

“We’re incredibly excited to announce the opening of our third Chicago Heights, Illinois production facility,” said Andy Rosenband, Founder and CEO of Morgan Li. “Since my grandfather Maurice Rosenband founded Par Steel Products just down the street from this facility in 1943, we’ve been a part of the Chicago Heights community and remain committed to growing the local economy.”

The Washington facility sits approximately a quarter mile from Morgan Li’s headquarters; provides easy access to the company’s central manufacturing hub, Lincoln Highway facility, and major interstates; adds ten loading docks (expanding to 13 in summer 2022); and will house a state-of-the-art paint line currently being installed and will be operational by beginning of Q2 2022.

In addition to providing clients with additional fixture and furniture production capabilities, the purchase of this facility expects to add 25-30 jobs in 2022, with additional space to hire dozens more in coming years.

“As companies continue to face the burden of long, complex supply lines, we’re ecstatic to open another centrally-located facility to better serve our clients and meet their evolving needs,” said Jonathan Rosenband, President of Morgan Li. “Through strategic investments in facilities like this, Morgan Li can remain a leader in providing custom fixtures and furniture to customers both large and small.”
