Our Facilities

Precision chemistry at scale, finally

We’re building the world’s first and only industrial scale manufacturing campus dedicated to Metal-Organic Frameworks


Arriving in 2024: Industrial scale precision chemistry manufacturing

Numat is growing and so is the need to increase the company’s operational footprint. In 2024, Numat is relocating its headquarters to a former foundry in Chicago, being repurposed to a state-of-the art nanofabrication and manufacturing center of excellence.

Numat’s new facilities will be purpose built to power a culture of innovation and integrate product development – from design through high volume manufacturing. Once complete, Numat will operate the world’s first and only industrial scale operations dedicated to MOFs – a major milestone in the field.

Beyond manufacturing, we are co-locating state-of-the-art application labs to accelerate the integration of MOFs into products and processes, powering industrial validation with a supply-chain primed for global distribution.

When combined with our experienced team of chemists, engineers and operators, we’re uniquely equipped to deliver transformative precision chemistries that solve the problems that matter.


Building upon a rich legacy of innovation

Numat’s headquarters and main campus are set to be located in the former Pyle-National Company factory, a national historic site

In 1916, this historic Chicago foundry produced the first electric headlights for steam locomotives, enabling a transportation revolution as trains could now safely operate at night. Over the years, this foundry proudly welcomed innovators such as Thomas Edison and employed Nikola Tesla as Pyle-National continued to make significant breakthroughs in the lighting world.

While Pyle-National exited the city in 1992, we’re proud to play a role in revitalizing this historic site and manufacturing excellence in the Midwest, building upon a history of innovation excellence and impact.

We’ve done this in partnership with a leading global architecture firm to merge the site’s legacy industrial aesthetics with Numat’s brand ethos, creating an environment positioned to drive innovation and growth.
