Graco has celebrated its 20th anniversary of its European headquarters.

Patrick McHale, President and CEO Graco Inc & Jeffrey P. Johnson, Vice President and General Manager EMEA, (pictured) cut the cake to celebrate Graco's 20 years in Maasmechelen, Belgium.

Gray Company Inc. was established in 1926 in Minneapolis, USA and changed its name to Graco Inc 1969 and further acknowledged the importance of worldwide trade.

In 1994, moving away from several regional locations, the EMEA headquarters opened in Maasmechelen, Belgium.

So 2014 was the year that Graco celebrated the 20th anniversary of its presence in Maasmechelen.

Graco's facility in Maasmechelen contains a large warehouse that serves as a distribution centre for the company's Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) regions.

It is also the headquarters for the company's EMEA management team and it boasts a training centre for its distributor and end-user base.

"I would love to take this opportunity to thank you for trusting Graco during all these years. We are proud to welcome satisfied clients and look forward to many years of collaboration. Our daily mission is to serve your needs and exceed your expectations. Once again, thank you for your business,” said Jeffrey P. Johnson, Vice President and General Manager EMEA.
