NEW KENSINGTON, PA – Yerecic Label is thrilled to announce the opening of their Phoenix, AZ facility. The facility is over 40,000 square feet with two printing presses currently running. The facility has room for three additional presses, with one of those presses already being prepared for installation.
“Adding a location in Phoenix is a strategic opportunity as a large number of our customers are located in the West,” said Yerecic Label President, Art Yerecic. “It’s important to Yerecic Label to expand our ability to service customers at the Speed of Fresh®.”
The facility is a 1 or 2 day ship point to most Arizona, California, Washington and Idaho facilities. In addition, the facility has significant racking to hold inventory for west coast customers.
“We are very eager for our customers to visit Phoenix and tour the facility,” said Nick Warren, Key Account Manager. “They are going to love the atmosphere!”
“This is the most exciting development yet throughout my years with Yerecic Label,” said Key Account Manager, Tricia Brown. “Having a YL printing location essentially in my backyard is a real opportunity for west coast retailers and fresh food suppliers!”
Yerecic Label is proud that the Phoenix facility is staffed with a large number of long tenured team members. Having this many existing team members at the facility allows YL’s culture, procedures and service to seamlessly integrate to the new location.
“The promotion of so many Pittsburgh based team members to their new positions in the Phoenix facility created a wealth of opportunity for team members to move up quickly within the company,” said VP of Production, Brian Hurst. “This is beneficial for both Yerecic Label and our customers as we are elevating strong and skilled team members.”
