January 2018 • 19 R.D. Henry Launches EVOKE WICHITA, KS — R.D. Henry & Co. will launch EVOKE this month – a furniture grade cabinet brand designed to make kitchen and bath design – and the ordering process – less complicated. By streamlining and simplifying ev- erything from the catalog, to the order entry process, to how the dealer interacts with the manu- facturer, EVOKE was created to provide an uncomplicated, de- signer-centric approach. "We want to cut through all the complexity and get to the core essence of what is needed to design a beautiful kitchen," said Mael Hernandez, CEO and president of R.D. Henry & Co. "Then we use technology to allow a designer to do what they really love doing." EVOKE offers products, pro- grams and simplified pricing that help dealers sell more cabinets. The cabinets are crafted in four weeks and provide a simplified move up/move down choice. Dealers will also receive one-on- one, personalized training and a dedicated onboarding process. Häfele Expands Headquarters A R C H D A L E , N C — H ä f e l e America Co. has completed its newly expanded headquarters in Archdale, NC, a location the company has occupied since 1989. The refresh on the building comes as Häfele continues to ex- pand market share in its category. "The completion of this sleek, stylish facility serves as a renewal of our company's commitment to Archdale," said Paul K. Smith, president of Häfele America Co. "This expansion gives our em- ployees a modern, up-to-date workplace where all can effi- ciently collaborate and innovate." A newly expanded space was the plan all along since Häfele America Co. made Archdale its home. The company's original founders, Wolfgang and Ursula Häfele, left open grounds that the addition is now built upon. "The intent of that open space was always to expand when the time was right," explains Häfele America Co. co-founder and Corporate Director Ursula Häfele. "This new facility is the embodiment of a dream that began well over 40 years ago when we brought Häfele products to the United States." The sleek design and updated ameni- ties expanded the space by an additional 18,000 sq. ft., with an added showroom facility to demonstrate Häfele's prod- uct line for office visitors, guests and employees-in-training. The exterior of the 44,000-sq.-ft. new facility incor- porates a great deal of glass, efficiently making the use of natural light. Inside, the building features an open office con- cept to foster employee creativity and collaboration.
