Printful announced recently it is moving to a new, larger facility allowing the addition of approximately 100 jobs in the Santa Clarita Valley.
Printful plans on moving its California operations from Chatsworth to Valencia during the third quarter of 2021, doubling the size of the California team by the end of the year.
The 93,000-square-foot Valencia facility, set to become a fulfillment center, is nearly three times larger than the one in Chatsworth, according to Printful.
“California is our busiest state in terms of deliveries,” Davis Siksnans, CEO and co-founder of Printful, said in a prepared statement. “It’s necessary to stay in this area and expand our operations to fulfill the needs of our ever-growing customer base, and since L.A. is home to central shipping hubs, we’ll be able to maintain fast delivery times.”
Due to the expansion, the company plans on investing $10 million to increase the amount of DTG printers almost three-fold and purchase additional equipment for embroidery and poster fulfillment.
The Valencia facility is set to offer HQ pickup, an option to pick up orders directly from the fulfillment center, as well as warehousing services. However, due to COVID-19 restrictions, in-person pickups are currently closed for safety reasons.
