Bill Strenglis, president of Unified Brands announced this week the relocation of its corporate headquarters from Mississippi to metro-Atlanta to advance global and domestic growth. The new centralized headquarters will be home to Unified’s executive leadership team and will include a product demonstration center and training facility.
“Our growth opportunities are increasing in size, geography and segment; which requires more time by our leadership team,” Strenglis says. “This move better positions us to manage these opportunities on a global scale. The additional product demonstration center in a more convenient location for our customers and channel partners will also help facilitate our growth.”
Unified’s corporate leadership team offices and product demonstration center will occupy part of a new 500,000 square foot shared facility currently under construction. The strategic relocation is anticipated to take place at the end of the second quarter in 2014.
Unified Brands and its Groen, Randell, Avtec, A la Cart, and Power Soak product lines have leading industry positions in cooking equipment, cook‐chill production systems, custom fabrication, foodservice refrigeration, ventilation, conveyor systems, and continuous motion ware washing systems. As an operating company within the Engineered Systems segment of Dover Corporation, Unified Brands is headquartered in Jackson, Mississippi, and operates manufacturing facilities there and in Weidman, Missouri, and Pryor, Oklahoma.
