Vistaprint to Open New Manufacturing Facility in Dallas, Texas

Share:

Vistaprint, the leading online provider of professional marketing
products and services to small business owners, plans to open a new
322,000 sq. ft. manufacturing facility in Southern Dallas to support its
continued growth in North America and further improve the Vistaprint
customer experience. The company expects to invest $50 million over the
next couple of years in the new site near the International Inland Port
of Dallas and aims to have initial sections of the plant up and running
by the end of 2019. The plant is due to reach its full production
potential by 2023. The investment will include building costs as well as
the equipment used to produce customer orders.

This will be Vistaprint's third manufacturing facility in North America
and second in the U.S., adding to locations in Windsor, Ontario and
Reno, Nevada. The Dallas facility will enable Vistaprint to reduce the
company's shipping costs and provide improved value to its customers by
shortening delivery times. Having a third location also offers
redundancy in the event of a natural disaster or other major issue that
might hinder production, ensuring Vistaprint can continue to serve its
customers without interruption.

"We view this expansion of our manufacturing capabilities as an
investment in both our business and in the satisfaction of our
customers. As they increasingly demand service on their terms, our new
Dallas facility provides a great opportunity for us to exceed their
expectations," says Christian Vaillant, VP Manufacturing North America
at Vistaprint. "When we opened our Windsor plant in 2005 our global
annual revenue was around $100 million. Today it's around $1.5 billion
and growing, so we need to put ourselves in the best possible situation
to continue supporting that growth. Additionally, we're proud that the
new plant will offer a major benefit to the surrounding area through
high-quality job creation and training opportunities."

By 2023, Vistaprint expects to employ around 600 full-time employees at
the new site, including operators, engineers and administrative
professionals. An additional 120 seasonal, temporary positions will be
available to service times of peak demand. With a robust job training
program in place, Vistaprint and the City of Dallas are working together
to fill manufacturing job opportunities at the new facility.

Vistaprint estimates that Phase I of construction of the leased facility
will be completed by the end of 2019 and will create 200,000 sq. ft.
through an initial investment of about $15 million. The phase II
expansion will increase the size of the facility to 322,000 sq. ft. with
construction estimated to be completed by 2021.
