Hayward Holdings Announces Corporate Relocation To North Carolina

Leading Manufacturer of Pool Equipment Will Move Corporate Functions to Charlotte and Clemmons

Berkley Heights, UNITED STATES

Berkley Heights, N.J. , March 29, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hayward Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: HAYW) a global designer, manufacturer and marketer of a broad portfolio of pool equipment and associated automation systems, will relocate its corporate office functions to North Carolina from Berkeley Heights, New Jersey. Hayward will move its senior leadership team, corporate human resources, US sales leadership, corporate finance and other strategic functions to Charlotte. Hayward currently employs approximately 90 corporate employees in New Jersey.

As part of the relocation, a number of corporate operational jobs will also move from New Jersey to an existing Hayward production facility in Clemmons, North Carolina. The facility already employs 850 people, which includes the addition of approximately 100 jobs over the past year.  

“This is an important strategic next step for Hayward to create greater synergies and cross-functional collaboration to improve decision-making, cycle time and customer service,” said CEO Kevin Holleran. “It will also result in long-term cost savings that will be redeployed back into the business, put us closer to our largest production facility and create easier access to connect with our customers, distributors and channel partners.”

Hayward evaluated multiple relocation sites before determining North Carolina best fit the interests of the company. A number of different entities, including the North Carolina Department of Commerce, Economic Development Partnership of North Carolina, Forsyth County Government, Charlotte Regional Business Alliance, Greater Winston-Salem, Inc., Mecklenburg County and Forsyth County, provided valuable support and assistance for this strategic decision.  

The corporate relocation from Berkeley Heights does not impact any other Hayward location in the United States or globally. Relocation will begin in summer 2021 and be largely complete by spring 2022.
