Chauvet has opened a 35,000-square-foot satellite facility in Las Vegas, Nev., which will increase its capacity to serve customers in the western region of the U.S. The new office-warehouse-service center complex is twice the size of the company’s West Coast Burbank, Calif. satellite facility that it replaced on Aug. 10.
“Our investment in a new, larger and more technologically advanced facility reflects our commitment to this industry – and our belief in its future,” Albert Chauvet, CEO of Chauvet, said. “Being in Vegas will enhance the level of service we’re able to offer our customers.”
Combined with the company’s global headquarters in Florida, the new facility gives Chauvet the ability to ship to any point in the 48 contiguous United States within three days. The Las Vegas facility will stock CHAUVET Professional, Iluminarc, CHAUVET DJ and ChamSys products. Modeled closely after the company’s east coast operation, the satellite facility is actively recruiting and will host technical support, sales, demo/training programs, quality control and shipping operations.
Although the Las Vegas facility is new, it will be staffed by several long-term team members. General site manager Todd Bearden has made the move from California to Nevada, as have warehouse lead Mark Guzman, sales support specialist Elizabeth-Aye-Darko and repair specialist Brandon Cooks. They will be joined by a professional local service, support and warehouse staff.
“The strength of any company begins with its people, so I am proud and gratified that there are key team members that are joining us in Las Vegas,” said Chauvet in a statement. “We’re looking forward to building a great future together there and will be ready to serve our U.S. customers as the pandemic passes and business grows.”
