4imprint to Expand Distribution Center, North American Headquarters and Team
(OSHKOSH, Wis.) – Fueled by rapid growth, promotional products retailer 4imprint plans to build a 100,000 sq. ft. addition at its distribution center on Oshkosh’s west side and lease an additional 25,000 sq. ft. adjacent to its North American headquarters in downtown Oshkosh.
“As a team, we are humbled by the strong customer demand we are experiencing and the loyalty our customers demonstrate,” said Kevin Lyons-Tarr, CEO, 4imprint. “Our ongoing growth and these expansions, in particular, are a credit to our hard-working associates and their commitment to doing right by others every day.”
The Oshkosh-based company is the largest direct marketer of promotional products in North America, with 2014 sales of $399 million. 4imprint has nearly doubled its sales in the past five years after having grown at a similar pace in the previous five. For seven consecutive years, 4imprint has been named to the Great Place to Work® Best Small & Medium Workplace list.
The $8-$9 million distribution center expansion will allow the company to keep pace with increased customer demand, providing additional space to support 4imprint’s popular free promotional products sample programs, embroidered apparel offerings and distribution team. The North American headquarters expansion creates additional space for the company’s growing team. Over the next 3 years, 4imprint expects to add 150 new positions in customer service, marketing and merchandising, art, embroidery, IT, accounting and support functions.
“We are excited about what this means for our team, our company and the community,” Lyons-Tarr said. “This project provides a foundation for the next several years upon which our team can continue to build success.”
Expansion of the headquarters will begin almost immediately, with move-in scheduled for April. Construction on the distribution center is slated to begin in spring and is expected to be completed mid-summer.
