For most of us, 2020 will infamously go down as one of the most turbulent years we have ever had to face in our lifetimes, both individually and collectively. For us at EverKem, this was the year when we would come together to take the next step in our journey. After 14 years at our Indiana Avenue facility in Winston-Salem, we relocated to a larger facility that could support our continued growth.
What we already knew would be the most considerable challenge we had ever faced as a team, was eerily overshadowed by the looming threat of the Covid Pandemic that rapidly approached. As we optimistically closed on our new property on March 5th, we headed into the storm like ants marching ever onward, just as our great State of North Carolina went into lockdown on March 15th.
Although we have been in business for almost 25 years, we feel as if we are just getting started. Our new facility positions us to perfect our craft of caulk and construction chemical manufacturing and will be a great platform to exchange ideas and make connections with industry friends from all around the world.
As we settle into 2021, we find ourselves further experiencing industry disruptions and new problems to navigate. When asked about the challenging times ahead, President Jason Lynch responded, “Well, we made it here. Whatever comes at us now, at least we are here and will face it as it comes together.”
