The St Regis Group (PPAI 230188) is relocating its U.S. headquarters to a new state of-the-art facility in Chicago, Illinois. The purchase of the 180,000-square-foot facility will be finalized this week and will centralize production, warehousing and administration under one roof.

The supplier attributes the move to growth over the past decade that has pushed its needs beyond its current facilities. Located near O’Hare International Airport, the new location will allow it to streamline its operations, accommodate increased capacity and newer technologies, while leaving room for future growth and expansion.

“It made sense from a customer service, production and fulfillment perspective to centralize our U.S. operations under one roof” says Richard Firkser, president and CEO of the St Regis Group of companies. “When completed, the much larger facility will offer significant economies of scale and synergies for our manufacturing and decorating operations, allowing us to provide an even better experience to our loyal customers.”

The two existing facilities in Indianapolis and Chicago will remain fully operational until the opening of the new location, which is expected by the end of 2017. All St Regis Group employees have been offered positions in the new facility.
