The local authorities, represented by the Mayor of Mechelen Bart Somers, Everlam’s board of directors, leadership team and employees were all gathered on the building site on Wednesday for the ground-breaking ceremony. The new building will consolidate all main functions that are currently split across multiple sites.

“The center will provide the company’s employees with a modern, well equipped and stimulating environment to foster innovation and business development. Mechelen, centrally located in Europe, offers access to a highly qualified, multilingual workforce and is the perfect location to support our customers,” said Dr. Greg Parekh, Everlam chairman.

Harald Hammer, Everlam CEO, commented, “Our new HQ marks a major step in building an independent, sustainable company serving the architectural laminated safety glass market. Not only will it provide our employees a unique working environment, it will also enable stronger synergies across functions. Our future technical and innovation center will enable us to expand our R&D and Performance Monitoring Programs. This investment follows our previous investments this year: the development of our sales and technical support organization, the increase of our R&D capabilities by a new pilot-line and the launch of Everlam Quiet, our acoustic solution for architectural applications, and further confirms our commitment to our customers and our employees.”
