Unified Brands Announces Strategic Corporate Relocation To Atlanta

Unified Brands is changing zip codes and expanding its North American footprint.

The parent company of Groen, Randell, Avtec, A la Cart and Power Soak product line is relocating its corporate headquarters from Jackson, Miss., to metro-Atlanta. The new offices in a 500,000 sq.ft. shared facility will serve as a centralized headquarters housing Unified’s executive leadership team; it will include a product demonstration center and training facility. The move is slated to take place by the end of the second quarter in 2014.

The announcement was made by Bill Strenglis, president of Unified Brands. “Our growth opportunities are increasing in size, geography and segment, which require more time by our leadership team. This move better positions us to manage these opportunities on a global scale,” Strenglis said. “The additional product demonstration center in a more convenient location for our customers and channel partners will also help facilitate our growth.”

Unified Brands is an operating company within the Engineered Systems segment of Dover Corp.; in addition to Jackson, it has manufacturing facilities in Weidman, Mich., and Pryor, Okla.
