Without a doubt, one of the best parts of being mayor of this great town is participating in celebrations – just like this one today – where a company is a key component of our overall community.”Miles Atkins, Mayor of Mooresville

 

On April 3rd, 2019, NGK Ceramics held a groundbreaking ceremony for its new warehouse in Mooresville, North Carolina. Gray Construction, a leading design-build company recognized for its expertise in engineering, construction, and architecture, was selected to design and build the new warehouse.

 

As the company’s second warehouse in Mooresville, North Carolina, the 293,082 square foot facility will store finished goods and raw materials. It will also serve as an international distribution center for raw materials. Project completion is scheduled for the end of 2019.

 

Speaking at the ground breaking ceremony was NGK Ceramics USA president, Mr. Steve Dailey. “On behalf of our parent company, NGK Insulators Ltd. and all our local employees, we would like to thank the Mooresville community for all the support provided over the years. This support and the quality of the people that have worked here has been an important key in our success,” adding that “having recently celebrated our 30th year in Mooresville, we now look forward to the next 30 years as we continuously work to build our future.”

 

The new facility, located just five minutes away from the main production site on more than 40 acres in the Mooresville Business Park East, will enable NGK Ceramics to consolidate both raw materials and finished product in one location and provide improved services to its customers.

 

Also speaking at the ground breaking ceremony, Stephen Gray, president and CEO of Gray Construction, stated: “We are thrilled to partner with NGK Ceramics on a project that will allow the company to expand and improve its operations.”

 

Brett Goode, senior vice president of Gray’s South Atlantic Region, added that “this project further solidifies our commitment to the Carolinas, having executed work in this region for more than 30 years. We’re excited to be part of this project that supplies most of the major car and truck manufacturing companies in the U.S.”

 

Miles Atkins, mayor of Mooresville, added “NGK, an INTERNATIONAL business, has been part of our LOCAL business community for 30 years. The company has invested millions of dollars, recruited hundreds of workers, hired countless local residents and been an integral part of our business park. NGK is a model corporate citizen, and we are still thankful they chose Mooresville three decades ago.”
