Newest addition of Michigan-the Elizabeth S. Warren Technical Centre.

LECO Corporation has opened the newest addition to its corporate headquarters campus in St. Joseph, Michigan-the Elizabeth S. Warren Technical Centre.

Named in honor of LECO Executive Vice President and Treasurer Elizabeth S. Warren, this 28,000 square-foot facility is dedicated to the research and development of innovative instrumentation and equipment for LECO’s separation science product line.

These instruments are used in a variety of applications, including pharmaceuticals, metabolomics, food, flavor, fragrance, environmental, and petrochemical.

Having one facility exclusively devoted to this purpose will enable LECO to remain competitive in this field.

The building includes laboratory spaces, office areas, and an auditorium for presentations and educational opportunities.

The new facility houses 32 LECO employees, including scientists, engineers, technicians, and clerical, with space available to accommodate additional team members as needed.

In addition, the new facility and LECO’s main R&D facility next door share several engineering and technical groups.

Engineers from these groups split their time between the two buildings, and have ample workspace set-up in both areas.

The addition of the new building also creates more room in the adjacent Carl E. Schultz Technical Center for Research and Development.

By moving Separation Science R&D to its own building, the existing technical center now has more space to focus on the continued development of products for LECO’s inorganic, organic, and metallographic product lines.

The added space in both buildings will enable a more efficient engineering process from start to finish, in addition to allowing for proper pre-production testing.
