Minneapolis, Minn. - SICK (, a world leader in manufacturing sensors, safety systems, machine vision, and automatic identification solutions for factory and logistics automation, today announced a major expansion and relocation of its facilities in Minnesota. All production and warehousing will be relocated to the Eagle Creek Industrial Park in Savage, Minn. Also announced, the company will conduct its Grand Opening celebration and ribbon-cutting ceremony Tuesday, November 13 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the new facility. Guests include the Mayor of Savage and members of the Savage Chamber of Commerce. Dignitaries from the company's corporate headquarters in Germany will also be attending. Employees will be recognized for their hard work and contribution to this major expansion.

Employees at the new Eagle Creek Operational Center (ECOC) will manufacture and distribute SICK's industrial automation solutions, which include innovative sensors, safety systems, automatic identification, encoders and machine vision products. SICK's North American headquarters will remain at its current location in Bloomington. The space in Bloomington, opened up by the operations move, will be used to expand training, engineering, application, and demonstration capabilities.

The ECOC expansion doubles SICK's floor space in the Twin Cities, allowing it to better support the wide range of needs of its customers. This is the company's third expansion since it opened operations in the Twin Cities in 1976.

The new facility has 50,000 square feet of manufacturing, warehouse and office space. The company has moved approximately 100 employees to its new space.

"We are extremely pleased to be able to expand our facilities in North America, commented Bob Lomicka, SICK, Inc. senior vice president of operations. Over the past several years, we have worked hard to exceed our customers' expectations by developing, manufacturing and delivering high quality products and solutions. As we continue to develop and grow our product portfolio and create more customized solutions, our current space was becoming a challenge. This new facility will allow SICK to do even more for our customers and position us for continued growth. This expansion builds upon SICK's strategic commitment to have a strong presence in North America with local competencies in both product development and manufacturing," concluded Lomicka.
