MORTON, ILLINOIS, U.S. — 4B Components, the U.S. division of the 4B Group, has re-located to a new state-of-the-art facility in Morton, Illinois, U.S, the company announced on Feb. 27.
The new building is only a five minute drive from the previous East Peoria location. While 4B’s address has changed, the phone and fax numbers will remain the same.
“The company had been in East Peoria for more than 25 years, and we had outgrown the facility a few years ago. To keep up with demand the last few years, we had been operating with a number of satellite sites. This move will enable us to further improve our operating efficiencies and continue to provide the highest level of customer support that we are known for,” said Johnny Wheat, 4B USA senior vice-president.
With branches and manufacturing facilities around the world, 4B said it intends to continue to strengthen its brand and help customers with their continuing need for high quality competitively priced bulk material handling and electronic components. The new facility will bring 4B’s total worldwide manufacturing and distribution capacity to over 400,000-square-feet.
