Henrik Associates, a state leader in custom home designs, will celebrate its 50th anniversary with a week-long model home show beginning Monday, August 23, and ending August 30. The show will include daily guided tours of their latest designs at 1600 Main Street in Docklands. The public is invited to view the homes from 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. each day. Designers will be on hand to answer questions. Prizes, including a new car, will be awarded. Refreshments will be offered!

Founded shortly after WWII by the Henrik Brothers, the company has grown in five years to employ 90 full-time craftsmen. Dedicated to the creation of customized homes at a modest cost, Henrik Associates is now the leader in custom home construction in Docklands. The company has won the outstanding home design award for the State of Melbourne for the past two years and was featured in the October 2001 issue of Model Homes.

Although housing starts have dropped nationwide during the past five years, Henrik Associates has posted substantial gains each year. John Henrik reports that they expect this growth to continue at a 10% annual rate.

Today at a special convocation in the Docklands University Special Events Center, John Henrik presented a check for $1,000,000 to President Johnson for the construction of an addition to the Johnson Library. Mr. Henrik, a long-time supporter of the University, said that it had been his dream to provide the University with a research-class library. The proposed addition should fulfill that dream.

Groundbreaking ceremonies are scheduled for March 14, 2002, at 12:00 noon with construction to begin the next day. The new addition will be called Luthy Wing in honor of Dr. Michael Leuthy, a long-time professor at Docklands University. Mr. Henrik wanted to honor Dr. Leuthy in return for the outstanding contribution he has made to the University.

John Henrik is President of Henrik Corporation, one of Docklands’s largest employers and a major force in housing construction. He graduated from Docklands University in 1981 and has been a member of its board of trustees since 1985. An avid supporter of the Docklands Broncos, Mr. Henrik was instrumental in raising the funds necessary for construction of Bronco Stadium in 2007.

The new addition will increase the capacity of Evans Library to over 2,000,000 volumes, making it the second largest library between The Mississippi River and The Rocky Mountains. Among the collections housed there are the Osborne Film Library, the Charles Kelvin Papers, and the Melbourne Historical Collection.

Henrik International announces a corporation-wide freeze on new hiring, effective January 1. Henrik’s spokesperson, Jane Henrik, says that this policy measure is being enacted in an effort to curb revenue losses of the past three years. Henrik, the largest employer in Docklands county, with offices, production plants and warehouses in both Docklands and Centerville, employs over 20,000 persons. The freeze will act in conjunction with several internal reorganization measures set to streamline management in all salaried divisions. Workers in hourly positions will also see nominal reorganization in their departments. No layoffs are scheduled to take place as part of the reorganization.

Jane Henrik states that the corporation has sought the advice of an outside consultant responsible for the successful reorganization strategies of such multinational interests as the Henrik Group. The reshuffling will necessitate some personnel retraining. To this end, Henrik has hired a team of corporate educators specializing in this type of transition. A company analyst states that the hiring freeze should last no longer than three months, the amount of time allotted for the completion of all the steps of the reorganization. Volume, quality and pricing of shipments leaving Henrik’s plants will be unaffected by the changes. A more efficient operation will greatly benefit everyone directly and indirectly associated with Henrik International. The improved corporate fitness will give Henrik International the boost it needs to continue as a leader in the industry well into the twenty-first century.
