Overture Promotions Opens New Headquarters Facility
Overture Promotions, previously based in Vernon Hills, Ill., announced on Monday that it is fully operational in its new headquarters facility in Waukegan, Ill., 40 miles north of Chicago. The $70 million promotional marketing firm consolidated two distribution centers into 200,000 sq. ft. of warehouse space in the new facility, with expanded screen print and embroidery operations, and upgraded office space. The company added state-of-the-art technology to communicate better with customers, its U.S. network of sales offices and distribution centers, and its global partners.
“This is a long-awaited day at Overture,” said Overture Promotions’ CEO Jo Gilley. “We grew into our former building in a piecemeal way, taking over more and more space as the years passed, but without the ability to arrange it for best workflow. Our new home has given us the opportunity to set up the distribution center to best practices for supply chain control and workflow. It gives us room to continue to scale and grow, and for our remote sales reps in Chicago, Dallas and Dayton to have a place to work when they’re at HQ.”
Overture is a certified women-owned business and its hallmark consists of end-to-end in-house services, including domestic and international sourcing of promotional products, graphic design, web development, on-site screen-printing and embroidery, 200,000 square feet of warehouse space, kit assembly, packing, and domestic and international shipping. The company creates, builds, hosts and maintains customized webstores that give customers an easy-to-use platform for ordering branded merchandise, with marketing support and detailed reporting.
