W. S. Darley & Co. has purchased a new headquarters facility in Itasca IL. With more than 40,000 square feet of space, the new center is about 10 minutes from Darley's former headquarters in Melrose Park IL, where the company had been based for almost 50 years.
The new headquarters at 325 Spring Lake Drive in Itasca is home to corporate offices, the Equipment Division, and a new Defense Division. It was purchased in October 2007.
Darley's primary call center and sales office houses a staff of more than 30 full-time specialists responding to customer calls. With about 8,000 square feet of space, the new Defense Division will administer prime vendor and other government contracts and is in an upper section of the building. The lower level holds a Darley museum, training facility, and business archives.
