West Chester Protective Gear, a leading supplier of hand protection, rainwear and protective clothing, has announced a pending relocation of its corporate headquarters from Corridor Park Drive in Monroe, Ohio to E. Kemper Road in Sharonville, Ohio. The new address will be:
West Chester Protective Gear has over 120 full time employees and has outgrown its warehouse, distribution and office space at its current location. The Sharonville facility provides 60% more square footage and allows for future expansion for the rapidly growing durable goods company. The company has an extensive global distribution network and annually supplies millions of industrial and consumer gloves, protective garments and rainwear to protect workers on the job and at home.
The nearly 260,000 square foot facility owned by Neyer Properties is part of the Gateway 75 property, one of the largest available contiguous spaces in the Cincinnati region with over one million square feet. Gateway 75’s location to rail, highway, and UPS distribution hub facilities were driving factors in West Chester Protective Gear’s decision.
“We are excited about the relocation of our company to the City of Sharonville and thank Neyer Properties and the Department of Economic Development for their support,” said Kyle Packer, CFO, West Chester Protective Gear. “Our mission is to provide exceptional products and services to our customers and our new headquarters will be strategically located to support enhanced global operations and continued business growth.”
West Chester Protective Gear is slated to move its warehouse operations to the new location in November 2013 with office operations fully relocated by June 2014
