Batavia, IL, June 25, 2018-Wedi North America, a German based shower panel system manufacturer, celebrated the official grand opening of its factory in Batavia, Illinois, along with a ribbon cutting ceremony to mark the landmark event.

Wedi management and staff, local and state officials, and Wedi customers, partners and supporters attended the ceremony. Guests also had the chance to tour Wedi’s new state of the art production facility on American soil.

The new facility, which serves as both a corporate office and factory, has created a substantial number of new jobs for the local community.
