The Hub Group has announced the addition of a second building on its Oak Brook, Ill., headquarters campus to add headcount as it scales to meet growing customer needs.

The second building, scheduled to open in September 2020, will double Hub Group’s footprint at its suburban Chicago headquarters, collectively accommodating up to 1,500 employees. Since moving to its current building in 2013 with a total of approximately 500 employees, Hub Group has added nearly 300 employees.

“Hub Group’s customer-focused approach has led to sustained, long-term growth, especially as we continue to innovate with technology to drive a smarter supply chain,” said David P. Yeager, Chairman and CEO of Hub Group.

In addition to customer service, the new building’s design will focus on incorporating sustainable features. The company’s existing headquarters building includes sustainable building features, such as full floor-to-ceiling windows to maximise natural light, high-efficiency HVAC and stormwater harvesting.

Located along the I-88 Tech Corridor in Oak Brook, Ill., the new building will be adjacent to and connected via an underground walkway to Hub Group’s existing headquarters. The 29-acre headquarters campus will encompass the two buildings. With room for additional buildings in the future, the expanded campus provides space for Hub Group to scale its growing business.
