FetterGroup Announces Expansion Plans
November 3, 2009
LOUISVILLE, KY - After 121 years of operation in Louisville, KY, FetterGroup, a marketing distribution and packaging provider, is expanding its operations to the western United States with the opening of a 12,000-square-foot- facility in Reno, NV. The facility will provide digital printing, bindery, fulfillment and distribution services. FetterGroup President and CEO Terry Gill said that the company chose Reno for its western headquarters because it, “provides convenient access to California specifically and gives us a strategic advantage for distribution across the western U.S. We looked into several cities during our planning phase, and in the end Reno had the right blend of accessibility, skilled work force and low operating costs. We are thrilled to join the diverse Reno community.”
This expansion means continued growth opportunities for FetterGroup, which expects 2010 sales to increase by more than 20 percent. “Our healthcare marketing division is the main contributor to our record growth this year,” said Gill. “We see this trend continuing into 2010 and beyond. Our consumer packaged goods division also stands to benefit from this expansion with access to the west coast wine markets and improved distribution across the country.”
FetterGroup has also invested $700,000 in new equipment purchases in 2009 with an additional $2,000,000 budgeted for infrastructure growth in 2010.
