Hennecke Group, leader in manufacturing and supply of polyurethane processing equipment and plants, has shifted its North American headquarters to a new purpose-built facility south of Pittsburgh, Penn. The new headquarters has a research and development laboratory, a modern parts warehouse and areas for machinery repair and mixhead rebuilding services.

The new headquarters also features more office and conference space. Modern construction methods and better use of space resulted in a more efficient and sustainable structure. 

"This building better represents the innovation and leading polyurethane technology that we provide," said Lutz Heidrich, general manager of Hennecke. "We even used some of the materials that our customers make to construct the building." 

The new building is insulated with continuous, foil-faced polyiso panels made by Hunter Panels, a Carlisle Construction Materials company. It also contains hot water heaters manufactured by Bradford White. Both companies are Hennecke customers. 

Besides flexible- and rigid-faced insulating panels and hot water heaters, Hennecke manufactures equipment and supplies plants that make a wide variety of polyurethane-based products for the automotive, transportation, refrigeration, household goods, marine and aerospace, footwear, clothing, sporting goods, furniture, bedding, mattress and building and construction industries. 

Hennecke is the only machinery, plant and system supplier capable of providing solutions for all core technologies in polyurethane processing. The North American headquarters is one of many Hennecke Group locations worldwide. Besides its corporate headquarters in Germany, Hennecke operates facilities in Italy, Brazil, Mexico, China, Singapore, South Korea, India and Russia.
