Target Decorated Apparel To Open Phoenix Facility
Target Decorated Apparel (PPAI 156880), a contract decorator for the promotional products and retail industries based in Naperville, Illinois, is opening a second facility in Arizona to better serve its West Coast customers as well as support the future growth of the company. The new 7,200-square-foot facility is located in Phoenix and will feature state-of-the-art screen printing and embroidery equipment to meet Target Decorated Apparel’s quality standards. The facility will also offer heat transfers and fulfillment services and is expected to be operational in March 2021.
Steve Kanney, principal and owner of Target Decorated Apparel, says, “Having a second location will not only help us realize significant cost reductions and other efficiencies when serving clients in the Western United States, but it will also help us meet growing demand from new customers. Customer service, art services/design and accounting will continue to be centralized in Illinois.”
Kevin Schardt, president of Target Decorated Apparel, who will oversee Phoenix in addition to the company’s Naperville headquarters, adds, “The Arizona operation will follow the same standard operating procedures and best practices we employ at our Naperville location to ensure our customers receive the highest quality decoration, regardless of where it is produced. In addition, our close proximity to the UPS distribution center in Phoenix will help us ensure faster delivery to all of our West Coast customers.”
