Dexter Magnetic Consolidates into Elk Grove Technology Park

Avison Young negotiated a long-term lease on behalf of Dexter Magnetic Technologies, Inc., for an 81,676-square-foot industrial facility in the newly developed Elk Grove Technology Park at 801 Innovation Dr. in Elk Grove Village, IL. The firm’s Christopher Lydon and Chris Tecu worked with the developer on the project, Brennan Investment Group, on the lease negotiations for the project.

Dexter is expanding its operations while consolidating its two current Elk Grove Village facilities located in the O’Hare submarket. The building shell is complete and the construction on the new office space is expected to begin this summer.

“Over the course of the lease, Dexter will add approximately 200 employees at this new state-of-the-art facility,” said Lydon. “Remaining within Elk Grove Village allows the company to retain their top-tier workforce which is a major priority for this innovative company.”

Brennan Investment Group was represented by CBRE’s Jack Brennan.
