Dayton Area

A Dayton-area manufacturing company recently finalized a relocation. The move will prompt new hires.

Everyday Wire Technologies, a branch of Everyday Technologies, moved from its facility in Bellefontaine to a 10,500-square-foot building at 1089 Fairington Drive in Sidney, just a short drive from Everyday Technologies’ base on Campbell Road. The move came for many reasons—primarily, its growth and a desire to be closer to its customer base.

“Just being in our customer’s back yard is a gigantic advantage,” said Andrew Gilardi, co-owner and general manager of Everyday Wire Technologies. “Being close to I-75 is a big advantage, especially as we are prospecting prospective customers. It’s very attractive to them as well.”

The new facility in Sidney is smaller than the Bellefontaine facility, but that comes as a blessing. The current total operating space within the Sidney facility is 7,500 square feet, with an anticipated 2,500 square feet to grow into.

“We were able to make more efficient changes to our operations and flows,” Gilardi said. “It was good to downsize.”

Production at the facility officially kicked off on June 27, and after 11 weeks, Gilardi said they are back to 100% production output, with more capacity to grow in their new location. Currently, Everyday Wire Technologies employs 15 people, with plans to increase that number up to 24 within the next year by hiring key personnel for quality and purchasing, as well as manufacturing jobs.

“We could probably triple our current sales in this building,” Gilardi said. “That’s definitely the goal.”

The new location allows Everyday Wire Technologies to share resources with Everyday Technologies—the locations are a three-minute drive from each other, allowing for more support across the board.

“It has been tremendous, the amount of support and help we have been getting from the quality side of things, accounting, human resources—that has been extremely beneficial for us,” Gilardi said.

Everyday Wire Technologies provides harness and cable assemblies and panel and box builds to industries such as food manufacturing equipment, HVAC, electronics and construction equipment. The harness and cable assemblies can be simple or complex and include single lead terminations, sensor and control harnesses and combination crimp and IDC connector harnesses. The panel and box builds include automatic wire processing, wire cutting, wire stripping, wire terminating, wire splicing, wire printing, cable tying and sleeving.

Gilardi hopes with this facility, they will have the opportunity to expand to providing products to emergency vehicles and aerospace industries.

“Andrew and his team were welcomed with open arms, and we are very fortunate to have the Everyday Wire Technologies team in Sidney,” Andrew Bowsher, city manager of Sidney, said. “The Gilardi family has a long history as entrepreneurs in our town, and this continues that trend of excellence.”

The sale of the property was aided Tim Echemann of Piqua-based Industrial Property Brokers, who brokered the transaction.
