Kaivac opens new corporate campus to support major sales growth
Kaivac, developer of the No-Touch Cleaning and OmniFlex cleaning systems, marks a milestone in its corporate history. The company is moving 9th October, 2017, to a new, multi-building corporate campus in Hamilton, Ohio - a move president & CEO Bob Robinson Sr, says was needed because of significant business growth in the past few years in the US, Canada, and overseas.
In fact, just recently Walmart, one of the largest retailers in the world, selected Kaivac equipment to help standardise its washroom cleaning programmes throughout its more than 3,500 US 'Super Centers'. Additionally, in the past two years, Kaivac formed a joint venture allowing the company to market its products in Europe, the Middle East, Africa and the Pacific Rim.
The new corporate campus, nicknamed the 'Kaivac Kampus', has been in the planning stages for a few years and includes four buildings, totaling more than 230,000 square feet. The site will house the company's business offices as well as research and development departments and manufacturing and production operations.
Unlike other leading jansan manufacturers with histories that go back decades, Kaivac is a relatively new player. It was started in 1998, operating out of unused warehouse space. Until recently, the company grew in modest increments.
However, with the new corporate campus: "We are more than doubling our facility size and tripling the number of people working for Kaivac," says Bob, adding that the company is now in the process of hiring between 30 and 40 people in its manufacturing department.
"I am a strong believer in manufacturing in the US as much possible," he says. "I think it is not only good for Kaivac, but good for our community, and the country."
Kaivac will also be adding several sales positions in the coming months. Bob tells us the company is looking for new sales people throughout North America.
