Ditch Witch Midwest and Schramm Construction Will Break Ground on New West Chicago Facility

by Sara Smith | Jul 16, 2018
Schramm Construction Corporation will break ground on the new Ditch Witch Midwest facility on July 25 at 1:00 p.m. Earl Harbaugh, CEO of Ditch Witch Midwest, will be joined by Mark Harbaugh, President of Ditch Witch Midwest, Fred Schramm, President of Schramm Construction Corporation, and West Chicago Mayor Ruben Pineda at the ceremony.
The new +40,000 square foot facility will be located at 1555 Atlantic Drive in West Chicago.  With the continued growth of Ditch Witch Midwest and Rentals Plus, along with the startup of 1st Choice Equipment, the companies have outgrown their current facility and yard space at 124 N. Schmale Road in Carol Stream.  

“Although we hate to be leaving the Village of Carol Stream, we are excited to be making our new home in the City of West Chicago.  This new building and yard space will give us the opportunity to train and hold customer schools on proper equipment operation and safety,” comments Mark Harbaugh. 

The new facility will include two advanced training rooms and over ½ acre of outdoor space to educate clients on the proper use of equipment and the overall Ditch Witch Midwest safety goals.  Other building amenities include a 3,000 square foot showroom, covered equipment storage, over 14,000 square feet of service area, and 12,000 square feet of warehouse space, in addition to private offices, conference rooms, and more.   The architect for the new facility is Eric Carlson of ECA Architects & Planners. 

Members of the media are welcome at the groundbreaking.  There will be a short reception following the groundbreaking with light refreshments. This is one of five other projects Schramm Construction is currently building.  Others include the Fox Valley Shooting Range state-of-the-art indoor firearms facility in Elgin, an addition at FONA International in Geneva, Price Circuits headquarters remodel in Elgin, and an addition at Christ Community Church in St. Charles.
