US: PGI relocates corporate HQ
Engineered materials producer Polymer Group (PGI) has relocated its corporate headquarters from North Charleston, South Carolina to Charlotte, North Carolina.
The new headquarters in the Harris Corners Business Park bring together about 100 employees in senior leadership, finance, purchasing, human resources, sales, customer service, information technology and other administrative positions.
PGI relocated employees from the former headquarters in North Charleston and offices in Mooresville and Raleigh, North Carolina to establish the centralised location and will also move employees from its Dayton, New Jersey location in August.
The Charlotte office puts the company closer to its customers and manufacturing operations, and aims to increase operational efficiencies and foster greater collaboration across the company.
"As we continue to grow, North Carolina is a great place to headquarter our global business," said James L Schaeffer, PGI's CEO.
The new headquarters increase PGI's overall employment in the state to about 480 workers.
Last month, PGI completed a US$40m expansion of its Mooresville facility that added about 50 local jobs. The company also has manufacturing operations in Benson, North Carolina. It employs over 3,300 worldwide.
