March 12, 2014 – ELGIN, Ill. – National Gift Card Corp. (NGC), North America’s leading provider of B2B gift card solutions, celebrates its 10th anniversary this year, and will be moving its headquarters and fulfillment center this month to a new 52,000 square foot facility in Crystal Lake, Ill.
The new headquarters, located at 300 Millennium Drive in Crystal Lake, will be the new workplace to 45 NGC employees. “We’ve enjoyed increased business over the years, and have outgrown our current facility, so now at the 10-year mark, this relocation is a milestone event for us,” said NGC Chief Executive Officer Adam Van Witzenburg, who noted the new facility provides three times the current space.
“NGC has been very fortunate and is very thankful to have had such dedicated employees, steadfast partners and loyal customers. Over the past 10 years we have seen this industry go from paper certificates, to plastic cards, to eCodes and now to mobile delivery. We are very excited about our new space and anticipate that this new facility will allow us to become more efficient and scalable in our fulfillment capabilities.”
National Gift Card had its beginnings as a small, family-owned business, founded in 2004 by Doug Wheeler. Today, the multi-million dollar enterprise employs 45 persons, and has been consecutively and upwardly placed on the Inc. Magazine 5000 list of fastest-growing companies in America. In addition, Crain’s Chicago Business has recognized National Gift Card as a “Fast Fifty” company, poised for rapid growth.
According to Van Witzenburg, the company’s new tagline, “Beyond Gift Cards,” reflects National Gift Card’s wider range of services to corporate clients, as well as providers in the incentive marketing industry. The relocation allows NGC to expand its offering of incentive and loyalty program support to include real-time eCode delivery, and fulfillment solutions for gift cards. Examples of programs NGC supports range from employee engagement, customer loyalty, and product introductions to rebate programs, sweepstakes prizes, and more.
