Oneida Announces New Global HQ Site
The Oneida Group has announced that as part of its corporate and innovation growth strategy, it will open its global headquarters in Columbus, Ohio.
The office consolidation will bring together the company’s senior leadership team in a single location and serve as the global headquarters for the sales organization. In additions, it will centralize Oneida’s design and commercial departments, as well as several support functions, including parts of the finance, IT, human resources, legal, marketing, and design teams. The company says its new facility will include a state-of-the-art showroom and design and innovation center.
As part of the consolidation, the company is closing its offices in New York, Arkansas, and Canada. Production facilities will remain in Lancaster, Ohio, where the company has been an integral part of the community for decades and is fundamental to its long-term glass manufacturing, distribution and supply chain business plans. Oneida also will maintain a manufacturing plant in Monaca, Pa., as well as a distribution center in Savannah, Ga.
“We are unifying our culture as one company and consolidating our global operations in central Ohio,” says Oneida Group CEO Patrick Lockwood-Taylor. “The Oneida Group maintains our focus on growing the business through innovative designs that delight our consumers, offering the best food preparation and dining products and services. By offering industry leading brands that consumers and operators prefer, we will sustainably grow our business.”
The company plans to host a series of grand opening events for customers, business partners, and community leaders pending completion of the innovation center and showroom this summer.
The Oneida Group (formerly EveryWare Global) comprises brands including Anchor Hocking, Sant’ Andrea, Buffalo, Delco, Fire-King, Stölzle, and Durobor.
