State-of-the-Art Facility for Office, Contact Center, Manufacturing, and Distribution Functions
FALL RIVER, MA - Displays2go, leading B2B display supplier, announces the opening of its new home in the Fall River Commerce Park. With almost 500,000 square feet of modern, newly renovated space to house all company functions, the new facility will effectively and efficiently support the continued development and growth of the company.
"Displays2go was in a number of small, marginal buildings when TAKKT acquired the company in 2012," said Dana P. Barrette, the President of Displays2go. "We immediately recognized the need to provide a first-class facility that would enable the team to operate effectively and continue to grow the company."
The move to Fall River began in 2013 when a team of company leaders and contractors began planning for a phased consolidation of all functions into one operating location. The first of several phases was completed in late 2014, when all warehouse and supply chain operations were consolidated into the new building and three of four legacy facilities in Rhode Island and Massachusetts were closed.
The main offices, Contact Center, and Manufacturing continued to operate at the former company headquarters in Bristol, RI while the warehouse operations expanded two times, and the team prepared the building to house the remainder of the staff in early 2017.
"At the time of the acquisition, TAKKT committed to keeping the company in the local area," said Bob Black, Director of Manufacturing and Facilities. “They recognize that the most important asset the company has is our team of dedicated, knowledgeable and passionate people, and we want to keep that team intact. This location allows us to do that.”
The new space is fresh and modern, and the company’s focus on Digital Transformation is ever present. Digital wall displays, collaboration spaces, configurable furnishings, and an open environment predominate. Warehouse equipment communicating wirelessly with management, telephone systems “in the cloud,” and customer-centricity are now the standard. Newly installed computer systems control every function from production planning to Contact Center management.
"We leveraged the challenge of company relocation as an opportunity to challenge assumptions, reengineer processes, and set the conditions for future success," said Barrette. "Everything we have done enables us to better focus our efforts on delivering quality, easy-to-use display solutions to our customers at competitive prices, while providing our Team a top-notch working environment."
