Sanford Business-to-Business Announces Facility Relocation
Janesville, Wisconsin-based instrument supplier Sanford Business-to-Business announced it will relocate sales and administrative staff into its parent company’s global office products headquarters in Oakbrook, Ill. The move, expected to take place by the end of first quarter 2010, will enable Sanford Business-to-Business to maintain its high level of customer service while working more closely with the company’s writing instrument leadership team.
“This consolidation offers Sanford B2B the opportunity to better tap into resources at our corporate office to further enhance our marketing efforts and strengthen our partnership with our loyal distributors,” said Kristie Schnier, the recently announced director of B2B sales and channel marketing. She and her staff will operate out of the Oakbrook office. No changes to Sanford Business-to-Business’ external sales organization are anticipated at this time.
Sanford Business-to-Business also announced a decision to consolidate all decoration operations into the company’s existing decoration facility in Mexicali, Mexico. This decision supports an objective of more closely integrating and aligning with the parent company’s global manufacturing strategy while consolidating facilities with excess capacity. The Mexicali facility currently imprints products for Sanford Business-to-Business, and its dedicated decoration area will be expanded to accommodate all types of customization for all product lines currently offered.
“We are committed to delivering outstanding products and service, with no business disruptions, while these moves are underway,” stated John Newcomb, senior manager B2B customer operations and Janesville site leader.
