ST. LOUIS () - Green Guard First Aid & Safety, a division of UniFirst Corporation (NYSE: UNF), is hosting a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Thursday, March 21, 2019, at 11:30 a.m. CDT, to celebrate the grand opening of its new 55,000-square-foot corporate headquarters.
The new St. Louis office, which will have a warehouse more than twice the size of its previous operation, is located at 3499 Rider Trail South in the Earth City Industrial Park—the second-largest industrial park in the U.S.
Green Guard's new headquarters was developed to accommodate the growing demand for first aid and safety products, as well as customized services, from businesses nationwide. The new facility will serve as a hub for warehousing and inventory, assembly and stocking of customized first aid cabinets, order fulfillment and customer service, accounting and purchasing functions, and technical support for field staff. The company also added 11 new jobs to support the growing operations at the facility.
"This new operation allows us to dramatically increase our warehousing and production capabilities to more efficiently supply and service our thousands of business customers throughout the country," says Todd Lewis, vice president, UniFirst First Aid Group. "This new state-of-the-art operation, along with the additional square footage our new warehouse provides, also helps support our initiative to accelerate market expansion and service integration within our parent company's growing customer base. Together with UniFirst's 250-plus service locations and its core uniform and facility service supply business, Green Guard First Aid & Safety will help provide more customers with complete solutions for their uniform, facility service, and, now, first aid and safety needs."
