Heiland Electronic Expands Wilmington HQ
WILMINGTON -- In the next year, Heilind Electronic’s headquarters in Wilmington will increase from 40,000 square-feet to 100,000 square-feet.
The 60,000-square-foot expansion on Jonspin Road will provide additional office and warehouse space, making room for current employees and growth over the next decade.
“The new building will include additional office space, mobile workstations, multiple conference rooms, additional parking and expanded employee amenities,” Mark Romanowski, director of marketing for Heilind, said in a statement. “We are also looking to add technology applications to enable a smart office environment and a solar component to our facility to further expand our commitment to become a greener company.”
Board of Selectmen Chair Kevin Caira said Wilmington is an ideal location for businesses, because it is near Boston, New Hampshire and close to Interstate 93.
“You see companies like Analog with their expansion, so people hear about that, they see that there are good companies coming into Wilmington,” Caira said. “Success breeds success I guess when companies look for a solid base and good location where they can continue to grow and expand.”
Founded in 1974, Heilind now has more than 30 locations in North America. The company distributes circuit protection products, wire, relays, switches and more.
“As a global electronic components distributor, Heilind Electronics has been growing globally and this expansion of our corporate headquarters demonstrates our continued commitment to call the state of Massachusetts and the town of Wilmington our home,” Romanowski said.
Erland Construction, which is based in Burlington, is building the two-story addition on the existing 40,000 square foot office and warehouse space. Romanowski said Erland is a leading builder in the state for other projects, like schools and residential developments. The one-year construction project began the first week in October.
“Seeing firsthand the quality and oversight Erland provided on these other projects gave us the confidence that we were selecting a quality company and a great partner,” Romanowski said.
Caira said this expansion will help other businesses with Erland and Heilind employees likely to become customers for a bite to eat or other shopping.
“It’s very welcoming to the community to hear the news,” Caira said. “We’re in an area that works well with companies and Wilmington has a good relationship with companies looking to expand.”
