Ravinia Plumbing, Sewer, Heating & Electric, one of the first and oldest of Chicago’s North Shore service contractors, is proud to announce the completion of their new facility on 575 Bond St in Lincolnshire, IL. The 91-year-old company has spent more than 11 years at its last location in Highland Park and is making the move to handle its continued expansion.
After extensive consideration and research into location possibilities, Ravinia Plumbing’s president, David Ariano, felt confident that expanding its reach in Lincolnshire was the right decision. “Our parking needs had outgrown this location,” Ariano said. “And we didn’t have any secure parking for our growing fleet of trucks and service vans.”
Ravinia Plumbing has made a significant investment in upgrading the building, and expanding the parking lot to accommodate its growing fleet of service trucks and vans. The new building brings all the company’s departments and functions together under one roof to foster even greater collaboration and teamwork, while improving the company’s overall operating efficiency and reach.
The current location in Highland Park was becoming too small to accommodate the expansion that Ravinia Plumbing has experienced over the last 11 years. The new location is a single, 21,600 square foot state-of-the-art facility.
“We’re all looking forward to the many advantages that our new facility will provide,” said Ariano. “We’re a very customer-focused company, and the new facility will only enhance our ability to create value for our customers and allow us to increase our reach.” The architecture and layout for the new building were selected to facilitate effective communication, quick decision-making, and improved efficiencies.
“If you draw a 15-mile radius from our Highland Park building, there’s a good section of that radius which is Lake Michigan. Now that radius is pushed west so we can better serve more homeowners in the northwest suburbs while still maintaining a close proximity to our current customer base on Chicago’s North Shore.” Ariano continued, “We can now better serve our customers in the communities of Barrington, Indian Creek, Inverness, Ivanhoe, Lake Zurich, Palatine, Prospect Heights and the northern end of Arlington Heights.”
This isn’t the only new investment Ravinia Plumbing has made in its business. Over the past two decades, Ravinia Plumbing has acquired six companies, implemented new computer systems and software and increased its fleet of service trucks. “We are aggressively investing in our business,” stated Ariano, “because it’s a good long-term bet that homeowners and businesses will continue to need the top notch service that we provide.” The company is also investing in its people and their development, and strongly encourages promoting from within. “We believe that we have some of the most talented people anywhere, not just in the contracting industry, but in business in general—and continuing to develop that talent pool will be critical to our future success.”
Ravinia Plumbing employs more than 75 employees and that number is increasing every year.
