SIGVARIS Strives to Move Every Day a Step Further with Groundbreaking Event
PEACHTREE CITY, GA (Nov. 2, 2015) – SIGVARIS, the global leader in graduated compression, continues its mission to improve the health of legs worldwide with a groundbreaking event held on Nov. 2 at 2:30 p.m. in honor of its North America expansion project.
When the new state-of-the-art expansion is complete in the fall of 2016, it will include 40,000 square feet of additional office, manufacturing and warehouse space. The new expansion is expected to provide growth opportunities over the next 10 years and create more than 70 new jobs.
“SIGVARIS is proud that this new expansion will not only help support the local community with new jobs and opportunities, but it will also allow the SIGVARIS brand to continue to make strides as a global leader in innovation for the compression market in North America,” says Scot Dubé, president and CEO for SIGVARIS North America.
SIGVARIS has partnered with Peachtree City based Tiernan & Patrylo, Inc. The design-build firm will develop the new space and also assist with a 37,000 square-foot renovation project. Both projects will take place at the same time.
The expansion project will also allow SIGVARIS’ manufacturing, warehouse and customer care departments to all reside under one roof. The SIGVARIS North American headquarters currently occupies two locations as the company has experienced consistent growth, since it built its North American headquarters in 1997. SIGVARIS is a family-owned Swiss business that has been around for more than 150 years. Today, more than 90 percent of the graduated compression products bought and sold in North America are manufactured in Peachtree City, Ga.
