Flex-N-Gate is set to open a manufacturing facility on Chicago’s South Side that will create hundreds of jobs, the company announced Thursday.
The company, partnering with the city and state, will convert an existing warehouse facility into a modern automotive operation that will serve auto makers, including the Chicago Ford Assembly Plant, and generate nearly 300 manufacturing jobs.
The company will begin its lease of the 288,000-square-foot facility in January 2018. The facility was leased and is managed by CBRE. Mitch Adams and George Maragos of CBRE represented the ownership. Jason West and Mike Magliano of Cushman & Wakefield represented Flex-N-Gate.
