FOREVER® Opens New State-of-the-art Memory Digitization Facility
Today, Forever, Inc. announced the opening of its new state-of-the-art digitization facility in Hobart, Wisconsin, outside of Green Bay. FOREVER currently digitizes over two million memories each year (including VHS tapes, films, photos, and negatives), so that people can bring old memories back to life. The new facility will dramatically increase FOREVER’s digitization capacity.
The new FOREVER facility is the first structure to be completed in the Village of Hobart’s new mixed-use business district under the municipality’s master development plan. FOREVER received tax increment financing from the Village of Hobart to assist with project financing. The new facility was designed and built by Bayland Buildings, which is headquartered in Hobart.
“After many months of planning and construction, my team and I are thrilled to bring our new state-of-the-art digitization facility online,” said Glen Meakem, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of FOREVER. “The expanded footprint and new equipment will enable significant growth of the FOREVER digitization business and our entire memory-keeping platform in the months and years ahead.”
"By leveraging the larger space, most sophisticated technology available, and our highly dedicated Green Bay area workforce, we will meet the growing demands of our customers across North America, ensuring that their memories are immortalized with the utmost precision and care," said Eric Napier, FOREVER Director of Digitization.
“At FOREVER, we do the highest quality digitization work on the planet. No one cares more than we do.”
There’s no place like FOREVER®. The company provides a complete, permanent, and trustworthy memory-keeping platform in the internet cloud for people, families, and organizations that want to enjoy, preserve, and share their precious memories today, tomorrow, and for generations into the future. FOREVER is headquartered in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and serves clients globally with its internet cloud-based products and services.
