TWINSBURG, Ohio (May 7, 2013) – FFR-DSI, Inc., a leading provider of retail merchandising solutions, announces the opening of its new, expanded, state-of-the-art facility in Florence, Kentucky. FFR-DSI President and CEO Stan Burson stated that the facility, which features the latest office and warehouse technology, was built with focus on corporate growth, as well as FFR-DSI's efforts to continually improve operations. Housing office and warehouse space, the new Florence facility provides a 60% increase in square footage over the previous Cincinnati-area facility.
The new facility will benefit FFR-DSI's customers in several ways. It includes an on-site Design Center, which will allow customers access to hands-on development and evaluation of merchandising solutions. New office technologies and an open-office floor plan facilitate greater project-synergies among key support departments such as Product Development, Customer Service and Sales. Advanced wireless technology supports the distribution function, providing highly accurate and fast fulfillment of customer orders. Up-to-date office technology combined with efficiency-promoting warehouse technologies will enable the company to operate effectively and advance its competitive position in the marketplace.
With consideration of sustainability, the facility has recycling programs in place for plastic, paper, and cardboard for the offices and warehouse. Additionally, all warehouse lighting utilizes highly-energy-efficient bulbs which are activated by motion sensors.
"Our new Florence facility will provide a major boost to our operations," Burson said. "By expanding our Cincinnati-area location, and supporting its employees with the appropriate tools, we will be able to more efficiently provide high-impact retail merchandising solutions to our customers around the world."
