CHICAGO — Newark element14, a Chicago-based high-service distributor of electronic components and engineering solutions, has relocated its Americas headquarters from Ravenswood to the West Loop. The tech company’s new offices are located at 300 S. Riverside Plaza in Suite 2200.
“We’re thrilled with our move to a new and inspiring office space and look forward to being part of the vibrant West Loop business community,” said Tom Hudak, Business President, Sales and Marketing at Newark element14. “This move puts Newark element14 in an ideal location to attract and retain the best tech and engineering professionals and strengthens our position as a leader in Chicago’s burgeoning tech community.”
Newark element14 occupies all of the 22nd and part of the 23rd floors of their new location — the top two in the building — totaling 65,000 square feet. All 350 Chicago-based employees have been transferred to the new location.
The company, with an 80-year history of leading innovation in electronic components distribution, partnered with architect Solomon Cordwell Buenz (SCB) to develop an open concept for the new office that resembles an electronic circuit board — symbolic of the company’s product offerings.
“The design and layout of the building is another innovative and unique aspect of our company. Whether it’s through our industry-leading same-day-ship guarantee or our differentiating multi-channel sales platform, the commitment to our customers will be even stronger in our new downtown location.���
Newark element14 sold their four-story office in Ravenswood in May of 2014. For more information on Newark element14, visit www.newark.com. Additional details on the new location can be found at www.300southriversideplaza.com.
