WESTLAKE, Ohio — On June 3, ASSE International will begin operating from its new principal office, located at 18927 Hickory Creek Drive, Suite 220, Mokena, IL 60448. The move to this expanded facility will occur May 30-31, with normal operations resuming on June 3.
Mokena, a south suburb of Chicago, has been home to the Chicago Regional Office of the International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials (IAPMO®) since 2007. Currently located on the first floor of the building, IAPMO will join ASSE International in the move to the 12,000-square-foot second floor, leaving room for growth as both organizations expand. The shared ASSE International/IAPMO suite will be divided to establish separate business units and identities, while still in close proximity to promote collaboration and the sharing of resources.
With easy access to all major expressways, two large classrooms featuring state-of-the-art technology, a spacious boardroom and a fully stocked kitchen, this new space is not only a greatly improved location for the day-to-day office work of ASSE International’s staff, but also ideal for any meetings, seminars and training sessions that have previously been outsourced to outside locations. In addition to the many other amenities of this new facility, traveling visitors and meeting attendees who need to work on the road can utilize the office’s 11 work stations located in the main lobby.
“This is a big adjustment for ASSE International staff, but we hope to make the transition as smooth and welcoming as possible,” said Scott Hamilton, executive director of ASSE. “I believe this tremendous new facility and the proximity to IAPMO’s highly professional staff quickly prove extremely beneficial as ASSE further embarks on its new era as an international chapter of IAPMO.”
