Converse, a subsidiary of Nike, recently announced plans to relocate its corporate headquarters to Boston, Massachusetts. The company was founded in Malden and then moved to Andover, a suburb 30 miles north of the big city. Converse officials said they'll be moving to Lovejoy Wharf, which recently underwent a massive revitalization project.
The relocation plans are thought to be beneficial for the company and the city. Converse is supporting the local government's initiatives to make Boston a hub for innovative businesses. Mayor Thomas Menino said in a statement that the clothing manufacturer should be able to find new workers once the move is complete.
"The move to Lovejoy Wharf will revitalize this historic northern gateway, while giving Converse access to a young, talented urban workforce," he said.
Companies frequently move to new cities to attract the best employees. However, it can be difficult to focus on recruitment efforts while you're in between headquarters. Corporate relocation companies like Stevens Worldwide Van Lines can help your business quickly leave its old facility and settle into its new building. Relocation movers can put your furniture and belongings in place so that you can start interviewing candidates and expanding your enterprise.
