CareGo Continues Expansion with new Burlington Office
HAMILTON- CareGo, an international supply chain logistics company based in Hamilton, is expanding its offices to a site in north Burlington.
“We’re proud to be a Hamilton success story,” says president and CEO Demetrius Tsafaridis. “Earlier this year we expanded operations to England and now we’re growing regionally as well.”
CareGo’s engineering and information technology staff will come together under one roof for the first time at 3600 Dundas Street, Suite 201. “These are the departments that drive innovation for our customers and having them under one roof will be extremely valuable,” Tsafaridis said.
The new location will include executive meeting and office space, giving more options for clients and staff traveling from the greater Toronto area. “Our headquarters will remain in Hamilton at Longwood and Aberdeen but the new location is right off the 407, which is more convenient for people coming in from east of Hamilton.”
It’s a big year for CareGo: In May, Tsafaridis’ six related companies in supply chain management and logistics re-branded under one name, CareGo. In June, CareGo finalized a multi-year project to install its automated warehouse technology at the Port of Liverpool. A new web site, www.carego.com, launched earlier this month.
“We’re growing – in 2012 we’ve expanded by 16 people, including some new graduates from Mohawk College and McMaster University,” Tsafaridis said. The company has 120 employees.
CareGo’s roots are in steel warehousing. Known then as SteelCare, the company was founded in 1999 and has expanded rapidly. Recent growth has been focused on the development of proprietary products for warehouse optimization, crane automation and material handling devices, and green technology and facilities.
CareGo serves customers in Hamilton, across Canada, the United States, Mexico and United Kingdom.
