Garland's New Training Center Opens In Renovated Facility
Cleveland, OH - This month, the newest crop of recruits at The Garland Company will be the first to go through training in Garland’s newly renovated training center. After nearly 100 years in the Union-Miles neighborhood on East 91st Street in Cleveland, Garland has made another investment in the community – and an investment in their team of employees.
Garland purchased a 16,000 sq. ft. building nextdoor to their corporate headquarters in 2015 and began major renovations. Newly named The Soliday Center — in honor of one of Garland’s first and most valuable salesmen and trainers — the renovated building will serve as the center of training for future Garland sales representatives and employees. With the 2,000 sq. ft. training room at the heart of the structure, the building will also offer office space for Garland corporate employees and corporate events.
In the last century, Garland has purchased one dozen adjacent properties in Cleveland totaling more than $10.3 million in investments. In 2009, Garland even received the Brownfield Cleanup of the Year award for their purchase and renovation of the former Baker Steel building on East 91st Street. With the addition of the new Soliday Center property, Garland now occupies approximately 200,000 square feet of manufacturing, warehouse and office space on more than 7 and one-half acres.
“Our people are our most valuable asset. The culture that we build with our new employees is vital to our company’s success, and this new facility is a place to build that culture. This space is a great way to show our commitment to our people and our neighborhood,” said Scott Craft, VP and General Manager at The Garland Company.
