Champion Brands Prepares for Future with New Corporate HQ
“We’re Investing in our employees and the future of Champion Brands”
Jacksonville, FL -- Champion Brands, along with close to 100 guests, will celebrate the future, as they break ground on their new corporate HQ tomorrow, April 24, 2018 at 9:00 am. “We want our employees to have pride in their workplace, and create an environment that will foster collaboration, teamwork and room to grow in the future. When I purchased Champion Brands in 1985, there were 80 employees – we now have 300+,” said Earl Benton, CEO Champion Brands.
Notable Project Facts:
- 36,000 SF Tilt Wall Construction
- Solar Rooftop and LED Lighting Throughout
- Full Service Gym with Locker Rooms
- State of the Art On-site Meeting Space for 250 In-door and Out-door Tap Rooms
Once the new HQ is completed (estimated Feb 2019), the vacated office space will eventually be demolished, for a 40,000 SF warehouse expansion. “We’re excited to be a part of Jacksonville’s continued growth,” said Benton.
The groundbreaking will be held at 5520 Florida Mining Boulevard South, Jacksonville, FL 32257 (off Shad Rd. and Florida Mining Blvd just past Champion’s existing facility on the left). The event begins at 8:30 am with guest registration and a light breakfast. The program will begin at 9:00 am. The event will conclude with the ceremonial “turning of the dirt” at approximately 9:30 a.m.
