Project Ivar’s

Ivar’s, a West coast company specializing in a variety of displays, showcases, store fixtures and retail counter units, as well as custom displays and fixtures, needed an east coast manufacturing facility to better service their clients geographically. Ivar’s set their sights on Shelby, North Carolina as the home of their east coast operations and worked with local economic developers who introduced them to A M King.

The building shell and site work was completed prior to A M King’s involvement. Therefore A M King focused on Ivar’s request of making one facility into two fully operational, multi-tenanted spaces. With only 60 days for the construction process, Ivar’s trusted the A M King team to diligently and efficiently manage their project despite time restraints.
