Tonn and Blank has served as an adviser and contractor for Urschel Laboratories since the early 1950s. It built a factory for Urschel Laboratories and over the years constructed 28 additions. After undergoing numerous renovations, completed by Tonn and Blank, at their current site, Urschel Laboratories, the global leader in food cutting technology, decided it was time to find a location for their new world headquarters that would house a new facility and allow them with future expansion opportunities. Tonn and Blank designed and built the massive structure and managed the massive logistics effort of moving every piece of equipment without losing a single day of production.
The new Urschel Laboratories World Headquarters is a 373,000 state of the art facility located in Chesterton, Indiana. The $80 million dollar facility took 16 months to complete. The building sits on 160 acres which allows for future growth.
The replacement facility includes new corporate offices and replacement manufacturing facilities. The corporate offices include executive, finance, engineering, sales, manufacturing, test kitchen, studio, IT departments, a museum of the company’s products and other miscellaneous departments.
