Corvest Cuts Ribbon On New Facility
Largo, Florida-based Corvest, a top 20 promotional products supplier and parent company of Adva-Lite, It’s All Greek To Me and Toppers, commemorated the official completion of its multitiered expansion. The project, which brought the company’s three lines together under one roof, was celebrated with a grand opening event at its new facility. More than 100 distributors attended the June 20 event.
Samuel F. Rossa, Corvest president and CEO, kicked off the ceremony by introducing the company’s leadership team, welcoming guests and speaking about the company’s capabilities.
“Our new facility has allowed us to offer our customers a number of new features,” Rossa said. “Because of its massive size—300,000 sq. ft.—we have more room for additional machinery and inventory,” he continued. “We’re also able to employ more team members, allowing us to reduce production times and increase customer satisfaction. As we continue to settle into our new environment, our customers will see even more improvements and we’ll move closer to being the number-one supplier in the industry,” Rossa concluded.
PPAI chairman of the board Stan Breckenridge, MAS, was also on site for the ribbon cutting. “Congratulations to the Corvest Group as you have stepped it up. In these economic times, your stepping up appears even larger and more rewarding than ever,” Breckenridge said during the ceremony. “Many companies are scaling back or maintaining a status quo. But the company that steps up during these times will prosper and do better than the competitors who have flattened or reduced efforts.”
After Rossa officially cut the ribbon, attendees were invited on educational tours of the Corvest facility. The first stop included a hands-on demonstration of the company’s best-selling and most unique custom items, plus case history presentations from industry sales veterans. Attendees then visited the marketing, product development and IT areas where they learned how the three Corvest brands are working together to make it easier to sell the complete portfolio of products.
