Visit Elite

Located in the heart of the I-88 R&D corridor, our Downers Grove, Illinois, facility serves as both our headquarters and our primary testing site for EMC/EMI and Vibration. Our North Annex is located minutes away in Lombard, IL, with additional Environmental, Materials, and Photometry test setups. Both sites are located just 30 minutes from either Chicago's O'Hare or Midway Airports and conveniently located near hotels, restaurants and major highways.
