ROCKFORD, IL – The Fabricators & Manufacturers Association International (FMA) announced plans to move its headquarters office and operations from Rockford, IL, to Elgin, IL. The relocation will offer greater access and convenience for FMA members, suppliers and other industry stakeholders, particularly those located in the greater Chicago area and the Interstate 90 corridor.

FMA anticipates breaking ground to construct a new building in April and occupancy to occur in November. The office will be located within Elgin city limits near the intersection of Interstate 90 and the Randall Road exit, approximately 45 miles from FMA’s current facility. Elgin is located about 40 miles from downtown Chicago and 25 miles from O’Hare International Airport.
