Doka relocates U.S. HQ to Kenilworth, hints at more hiring

19-acre location not only is good for current 150 employees, it provides room for expansion

Doka USA, a leader in providing innovative formwork and safety solutions, has moved its U.S. corporate headquarters and Northeast branch office to a 23,000-square-foot space in Kenilworth, it announced Tuesday.

The move is part of the company’s “Pathway to Growth” strategy, Doka USA CEO Michael Kennedy said.

The company, formerly headquartered in Little Falls, feels its new 19-acre property at 251 Monroe Ave. will better serve customers’ formwork, shoring and scaffolding needs while providing greater capacities for preassembly, reconditioning, standard material stock, material delivery and returns, as well as training.
