Millennium Trust Company - Oak Brook, Illinois

“Based on our rapid growth, it was essential we found a location supportive of our company’s expansion both now and in the future. While we are currently in Commerce Plaza at 2001 Spring Road, Suite 700, occupying about 48,000 square feet, we have the option to occupy another 24,000 square feet within the same building.”

“When Millennium Trust outgrew its space at its previous headquarters in Oak Brook, we were intent on remaining within this community and were fortunate to be able to do so. Oak Brook is the perfect fit for us. It’s a fabulous community and its location, many amenities and proximity to major expressways make it a great place to do business. In addition, the Greater Oak Brook Chamber of Commerce does a good job promoting the community and providing programs, services and networking opportunities to its business members. We are pleased to remain a part of the Oak Brook business community and look forward to a long term relationship here."

Grace Capital Group, Inc. - Oak Brook, Illinois

“After having worked with various Villages and Chambers throughout the Chicago-land area, I can honestly say that my best experience has been here in Oak Brook. The professionalism and courtesy of both organizations makes it a pleasure to do business here. These two organizations work together and compliment each other. They truly are here to help and assist you and your business in any way they can. We have gone through multiple permit processes and an ordinance change and all have gone very smoothly. I would recommend Oak Brook to anyone."

A. M. Castle & Co. - Oak Brook, Illinois

“Our initial meetings with the Greater Oak Brook Partnership and the Village of Oak Brook representatives provided a solid understanding of the permitting process and building requirements, while reaffirming our reasons for considering Oak Brook as the site for our new corporate headquarters.

Having now completed the process, we can now say that the promises that were made in those initial meetings have not only been met, but were often exceeded. The fast and efficient permitting process and coordination with the Village staff allowed us to expedite our construction schedule while retaining the highest confidence that all the work was being done the right way, with the long-term safety of our employees a top priority. The teamwork exhibited by everyone in Oak Brook, our construction contractors, and our design team allowed us to move our employees into our new headquarters almost a month ahead of schedule and without the “surprises” that too often are part of a large project like this.

As we settle in, our employees are enjoying the promised amenities of the Village and the Park District facilities and we look forward to a long-term relationship with Oak Brook.”

We analyzed many options across the broader region, and ultimately, the opportunity to be in the midst of such a strong and truly  supportive community became a major factor in our decision to locate in Oakbrook Terrace.

Centrally located between downtown Chicago and the North, West and South corridors, our Oak Brook headquarters provides convenient access to all of our clients.

Rasmussen College - Oak Brook, Illinois

"We have been very pleased with the relocation of our corporate headquarters to the Oak Brook community. Our employees enjoy the amenities of the nearby shopping mall and the access from the major highways. The move was also made easier by the help of the professionals at the Village and the Chamber in providing a fast and efficient permitting process and working with us to modify an ordinance to permit our signage, which was critical to the relocation. I recommend that all CEOs seeking to locate professionals in the area consider the Oak Brook community."
