Romeoville Mayor John Noak is cutting ribbon today
Magid, a leading manufacturer and supplier of safety solutions and personal protective equipment (PPE), is pleased to announce its ribbon-cutting ceremony for its new 700,000 square-foot global headquarters in the Village of Romeoville on Friday, June 12, 2015. Mayor John Noak will join local officials to commemorate the new facility at 1300 Naperville Drive.
After nearly 70 years of residing in the City of Chicago, moving to Romeoville marks the next phase of successful growth for this family-owned business. Magid’s new world headquarters provides room for expansion and increases the Company’s efficiencies by consolidating corporate offices, manufacturing and distribution operations under one roof. The Company serves 25,000 customers with over 100,000 safety products in the industrial market and also serves the consumer market through national chains such as AutoZone and True Value Hardware.
“We are truly grateful that Magid has chosen Romeoville for its headquarters facility,” said Mayor Noak. “It is my pleasure to officially welcome the Company to our business community, bringing over 500 employees from diverse functions, including manufacturing, distribution, business operations and global sourcing.”
“We are thrilled to call Romeoville our new home,” said Greg Cohen, CEO of Magid. “This move enhances the ways we can help our customers manage their safety programs and protect their workers from on-the-job injuries.”
Magid is capitalizing on the expanded space and the centralization of functions under one roof. In addition to added efficiencies in supporting its nationwide sales and service functions, the move enables the Company to further strengthen its offering of custom-manufactured solutions for customers’ hard-to-solve safety challenges. This unique offering is a key factor in the growth of Magid’s loyal customer base.
As part of the move, Magid installed the most advanced automated warehouse and distribution system in our industry. It is designed to grow with Magid while ensuring speed, accuracy and throughput that their customers have grown to expect. With $50MM in stocked inventory, Magid delivers 99.9% order accuracy and same day shipping 98.5% of the time.
