Swagelok Company of Solon, OH, recently held a ribbon cutting ceremony celebrating the completion of its new global headquarters and innovation center. The 124,000-square-foot facility includes an innovation laboratory and the Edward A. Lozick Customer Collaboration Center and is directly connected to the company’s main plant.
In conjunction with the global headquarters, the main plant was renovated, including a makerspace that encourages Swagelok associates to bring their creativity to the workplace.
The planning for the global headquarters and innovation center began in 2014 with a workplace study by Cleveland architecture and interior design firm vocon, a company team was tasked with understanding Swagelok’s business needs and associate wants — and designing a workspace that would bring the two together in a cohesive and inspiring way.
Swagelok Company is an approximately $2 billion privately held developer of fluid system products, assemblies, and services for the oil and gas, chemical and petrochemical, semiconductor, and transportation industries.
