Company moving headquarters to Jacksonville

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Gem Products is relocating its corporate office from Orange Park to the Flagler Center in Jacksonville.

The company is one of the world’s leading stainless-steel marine and boat hardware suppliers.

What makes this project unique is that it combines commercial corporate offices, research and development, retail and warehouse distribution all in one project.

All the partners involved in building the new state-of-the-art facility are Jacksonville-based, meaning more money will filter into the local economy and jobs.

In addition to being a manufacturer, if you talk to company execs, the thing that makes them most proud is the majority of their employees have been with them for 10 years or more. By all accounts, the company is growing as much as 20 to 25 percent a year, and that means a 20 percent increase in new job opportunities over the next two or three years.
