Everkem is excited to announce a major move to a larger facility in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. We will be moving from our current location at 5180 Indiana Avenue to 120 Regent Drive. The new facility is approximately 48,000 square feet, roughly twice the size of our current facility with notable increases in manufacturing, shipping, and laboratory square footage. The new location will provide us with much-needed space to accommodate our rapid and continual growth.
“We’re all very excited about the move to a larger facility,” said Jason Lynch, President. “We’ve been growing at a high rate year over year, and we’re bursting at the seams at our current location. The extra space has allowed us to purchase several new pieces of machinery that we simply didn’t have the space for before, which will improve our operational efficiency, consistency, and quality. The larger office space also means we have room to hire additional talent across all departments.”
Everkem began as Flame Tech, Inc. operating out of a small warehouse space in Greensboro, North Carolina in 2000. By 2004, we had consolidated under the Everkem brand and moved locations to the current facility in Winston-Salem.
Through a combination of innovative and flexible manufacturing capabilities, progressive product solutions, and a customer focused view of business, we continued to grow at a consistent pace through all manner of economic conditions.
As we continued to grow, space quickly began to become an issue. We needed to hold more inventory in order to meet our shipping targets, we needed more machinery to improve efficiencies and quality, and we needed more manpower – all of which required space and facilitated the move to the new facility.
The relocation is planned to take place beginning March 16th, 2020 and is estimated to take three to five weeks to complete before Everkem is operating fully out of the facility. During this time, normal operations including manufacturing and shipping will continue. Customers and vendors will be notified throughout the process to make the transition as seamless as possible.
“This is an important milestone for us,” Jason continued. “It’s validating. It shows that the way we do business – being flexible, seeing our customers as partners, and putting people before profits really resonates with our customers. And its our customers, members of our Everkem team, who really get the credit for helping our growth.”
