"These investments solidify Kirker's roots in the Paterson community and open up opportunities for sustained economic growth. Ownership of the previously rented space alongside the addition of new equipment will allow Kirker the ability to expand production and better serve our customers," said John McLaughlin, president and CEO of Kirker. "We have our heads turned to Kirker's long-term growth strategy, I am excited about its upward momentum."
Kirker also recently invested in Creative Studio 55e, a collaborative space for its marketing and creative departments. Unveiled in June, the new workspace is designed to help generate unique ideas for new products and plans to bring them to market.
"Our team has been much more inspired since we began working in Creative Studio 55e," said Brittany D'Ambrosio, director of marketing at Kirker. "Having an imaginative space to work in really fuels our ability to bounce ideas off the wall and think freely about ways to improve our products and engage with our customers."
