Magni AmericaMagni America, Kenilworth, N.J., a subsidiary of Magni Telescopic Handlers, Castelfranco Emilia, Italy, is constructing its new American headquarters located in Kenilworth, N.J. Drawing inspiration from its parent company in Italy, Magni America is poised to set new standards in eco-friendly corporate infrastructure, the company said.

Magni’s new headquarters is constructed using R-value 12-in. thick concrete cast-in-place tilt panels with integrated foam board, providing minimum thermal transfer. Adding to this initiative is the installation of a 150kw remote-monitored solar panel system. Designed to harness renewable energy, the system is expected to make the headquarters net-zero for electric usage, with surplus clean energy potentially being sold back to the utility grid.

“We anticipate being net zero for electric usage and to sell back the clean energy to the utility,” said Daniel Blum, chief financial officer, Magni America.
The headquarters will also have a variable refrigerant HVAC system. The HVAC heat pump system is designed to operate at high efficiency levels, minimizing energy consumption and carbon emissions, the company said.

The company also is implementing solutions for sustainable water management, including an advanced oil reclamation system in its wash bay. The system is designed to capture and reclaim used oil. The 26,000-sq.-ft. headquarters is scheduled to open its doors in the spring of 2024. In addition, the headquarters will feature ample shop space equipped with carbon monoxide monitors and a 20-ton overhead crane imported from Germany.
