New World Headquarters for DWFritz Automation


WILSONVILLE, OR, October 10, 2013 - DWFritz Automation unveiled its new, state-of-the-art, world headquarters located at 27200 SW Parkway Avenue, Wilsonville, OR, on September 26, 2013. Hundreds of partners, suppliers, clients, community leaders and friends of the company joined the staff of DWFritz to celebrate the completed build-out of the 70,000 square foot facility and mark 40 years of excellence in the automation industry.

The space was designed with Mackenzie with a focus on function, sustainability, and a strong “wow” factor. The second floor office space utilizes a modern layout intended for collaboration, yet balanced with privacy and supports the company’s culture of innovation. The space features a board room, five conference rooms equipped with scheduling wizards, four huddle rooms, a quiet room, and a secure room for confidential work. Careful consideration was given to the acoustics of the space, and unique ceiling panels are in place to assist with keeping sound minimized in the open design. Employee desks are adjustable, allowing the option to either stand or sit.

Mike Fritz, President, remarks, “We have made a long term investment to support our continued growth and give our employees a home they can be proud of. The additional manufacturing space positions DWFritz for new clients and projects.”

The kitchen is fully-equipped for employees to prepare meals. In keeping with the effort to be more sustainable, the company has done away with disposable plates, cups and plastic utensils. Next to the kitchen is a recreation room, complete with shuffleboard, ping pong and darts for social interaction.

The first floor is dedicated manufacturing space, with additional room for light manufacturing and an engineering lab on the second floor. This new building provides DWFritz with the necessary space to accommodate company growth rates and the ability to meet the growing demands of advanced manufacturing.
