Delivering world-class up-time for a global manufacturing company
For nearly a century, Evenflo has been a worldwide leader in the development of innovative infant care and juvenile products.
Evenflo traces their roots back to the 1920 founding of the Pyramid Rubber Company in Ravenna, Ohio. Initially, the company was a manufacturer of products related to baby feeding. In 1995, Evenflo Company, Inc. was created through the merger of Evenflo Juvenile Products and Evenflo Juvenile Furniture Company (formerly known as Questor Juvenile Furniture Company).
Evenflo has partnered with DataYard for external and supplementary IT services since 2002. While Evenflo has an internal IT staff and an onsite data center for corporate IT services, they trust DataYard for the continuous uptime of their public-facing web presence. For over a decade, DataYard has provided industry leading uptime for some of Evenflo’s most public and large scale marketing efforts. DataYard Account Manager, Alek Mezera, said, “I love working with Jeanine and Anthony, and all the other folks at Evenflo – all are super professional and knowledgeable, and our communication couldn’t be more honest and natural. Responsiveness is really important to them, and I think anyone there would tell you that we deliver.”
Today, Evenflo Company, Inc. is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Goodbaby International Holdings Limited. Goodbaby International is a durable juvenile products company that is listed on the Main Board of the Hong Kong Stock Exchange (1086:HK). Headquartered in Miamisburg, Ohio, the Evenflo (and ExerSaucer) Brand continues to operate within the Americas region of Goodbaby International. Evenflo is the gateway for Goodbaby’s success in the US, just as Goodbaby acts as Evenflo’s catalyst for global expansion.
The partnership between DataYard and Evenflo continues strong. Jeanine Cooke, Evenflo’s Information Technology Manager, said, “When we have a large project we know we can call on DataYard to assist and take care of the overflow aspects that we may not have internal resources for.” Cooke continued, “Management of our environments is virtually zero effort for Evenflo IT staff. DataYard aggressively keeps up critical security patches and lets us know if an off-cycle maintenance window is needed.”
DataYard is proud of our relationship with Evenflo and the trust we’ve built over a decade. Evenflo provides the critical safety and welfare products for the smallest of us all, and DataYard provides the big uptime this trusted brand demands. Here’s to the next thirteen years!
