Broadview, IL – Belden Universal, a leading manufacturer of custom universal joints and highly specialized mechanical power transmission products, announces its plans to move into its new, state-of-the-art production facility.

Construction of the new, 40,000 sq ft factory is progressing rapidly in Hillside, IL, in close proximity to Belden’s current headquarters in Broadview. Relocation will proceed in staged phases this fall and expected to conclude by late 2017.

The expansion was fueled by Belden’s steady growth over the last two decades, necessitating larger space for employees and for more streamlined production flow due to ongoing investments in equipment.

The newly constructed factory will accommodate leading-edge manufacturing technologies, lean equipment layout and automated workflow, resulting in increased efficiency, healthier margins and better overall customer experience. Ergonomic design throughout the building will further enhance employee productivity and job satisfaction.
