Everlam has commenced construction of its future international headquarters, located in Mechelen, where its head office, customer & technical service and R&D/innovation centre will be located.
The local authorities, represented by the Mayor of Mechelen Bart Somers, Everlam’s Board of Directors, leadership team and employees gathered on the building site on Wednesday for the ground-breaking ceremony. The new building will consolidate all main functions that are currently split across multiple sites, to facilitate highest possible customer focus.
“The center will provide the company’s employees with a modern, well-equipped and stimulating environment to foster innovation and business development. Mechelen, which is centrally located in Europe, offers access to a highly qualified, multilingual workforce, and is the perfect location from which to support our customers,” said Dr. Greg Parekh, Everlam Chairman.
Harald Hammer, Everlam CEO said “our new HQ marks a major step in building an independent, sustainable company serving the architectural laminated safety glass market. Not only will it provide our employees a unique working environment, it will also enable stronger synergies across functions. Our future technical and innovation centre will enable us to expand our R&D and Performance Monitoring Programs. This investment follows our previous investments this year – the development of our sales and technical support organization, the increase of our R&D capabilities by a new pilot-line and the launch of Everlam™ QUIET, our acoustic solution for architectural applications, and further confirms our commitment to our customers and our employees.”
