Canvas4Life, the global leader in custom canvas prints, will now cover more shipping territory in a timely fashion in the United States with the opening of a new Las Vegas, NV plant. The company has reported finalizing lease arrangements on September 15, 2011. The real estate companies arranging the lease transaction are Priority 1 Commercial, and Gatski Commercial.
Canvas4Life reports opening a “Class A” commercial facility in the heart of Las Vegas, with state of the art facilities, production machinery, regulatory-approved processes, and skilled production staff.
“By opening our Las Vegas, Nevada plant, we are introducing a very welcome consistency to our customer shopping experience. As most everyone knows, receiving orders in a timely fashion is a staple of every e-commerce business. At Canvas4Life we have an unwavering dedication to complete customer satisfaction- Part of what goes into that consideration is speedy shipping times. It’s all about our customers. We want to do everything within our resources to ensure a wonderful shopping experience, from our unique Preview-Before-You-Buy online software, to delivery times and beyond,” says Tim Wickham, CEO.
Newly-hired Senior Manager Tony Coscia, will oversee the new Las Vegas production facility, and manage all west coast and mid-west shipping matters.
“Managing all the logistics of the Las Vegas plant opening is a huge undertaking. But it’s a privilege to be part of this company expansion. I’m proud to work for a company like Canvas4Life which moves with urgency on behalf of our customers. It’s an exciting time for our company right now,” says Tony Coscia, Las Vegas Plant Manager.
“Tony has been instrumental in the opening of our Las Vegas facility. He’s taken on the complex matters of plant construction simultaneously with such things as recruiting. On top of all that, his primary objective will be a seamless operational entry in fulfilling our customer orders. I welcome having Tony on board as our anchor in the western half of our United States operations,” says Mr. Wickham.
Canvas4Life is experiencing rapid growth in canvas print orders and to meet that demand, the call for more production capacity will increase. Location and positioning of distribution are also important aspects in meeting that demand, according to Mr. Wickham.
"To meet rising customer orders, especially those from such western states as California, it was only inevitable to think about opening another production facility. Nevada seemed to be the best choice location for the hub of our Western United States shipping. We are very proud of our product, and the opening of this plant will give us the opportunity to do business with a wider range of the United States in an expedient manner," says Mr. Wickham.
With the US economy still slow to recover, and global recession pressures mounting, companies like Canvas4Life expanding is refreshing news. The US unemployment rate reported for August was 9.1 percent, according to Tradingeconomics.com, and the US Bureau of Labor Statistics. State-specific NJ and NV labor statistics may vary. The company currently operates production plants and offices in NJ and NV.
“Our expansions are hardly putting dents into some of these economic statistics. But I’m very happy to say Canvas4Life is contributing more than our fair share to improving the local job markets and also the commercial real estate markets of the cities we enter. On behalf of the company, I’m very proud to do business in these US cities. They provide excellent logistical center points to fulfill demand, as well as leverage the excellent local labor pools. It’s a privilege to do business in these areas,” says Mr. Wickham.
