Reno, Nev.—The Economic Development Authority of Western Nevada (EDAWN) and Cimpress, a world leader in mass customization, have announced the opening of the company’s first U.S. manufacturing operation in Reno, Nev.
Cimpress chose Reno because of its convenient access to distribution markets and strategic superior chain, as the company focuses on producing customized goods for small/medium businesses consumers, graphic designers and print resellers. “The desire for customized products is growing and our customers often want delivery as quickly as possible. Opening a production facility in Reno improves our supply chain substantially while allowing us to decrease our time to delivery to some of our largest and most dense customer markets,” Larry Reid, vice president of the new plant development at Cimpress, said in prepared remarks.
Located at 9250 Red Rock Road, the facility will consist of 72,750 square feet and will initially manufacture large-format products such as banners, posters and lawn signs. Cimpress intends to hire up to 150 new employees in order to fill a broad range of permanent, full-time positions such as plant manager, supervisors, production and shipping operators, human resources and accounting managers. The company received business incentives from the Governor’s Office of Economic Development in September 2016. Cory Hunt, Kidder Mathews, Michael Hoeck, Michael Nevis, Dave Simonsen and Steve Kucera have helped Cimpress to identify and establish a presence in Reno.
“The growing and competitive nature of mass customization has changed the printing industry when it comes to quality, affordability, and delivery to customers. Cimpress’ plan to continue expansion in North America by setting up its first U.S. light manufacturing operation in the Reno area will give them the added resources to more quickly service their customers in the Western U.S.,” Mike Kazmierski, EDAWN president & CEO, said in a prepared statement.
