The global company, established locally in 1958, has been named to Forbes Magazine's top-100 places to work in 2013, according to this report. The company has just under 12,000 employees worldwide, but has headquarters in Hackettstown.

On the day of the grand opening, Hackettstown Mayor Maria DiGiovanni and Lt. Governor Kim Gaudagno unveiled an honorary street name for the company along High Street, where the company's headquarters are located.
