Creel Streamlines; Bolsters Las Vegas Operations
LAS VEGAS—July 14, 2009—As part of ongoing improvement efforts, Creel Printing has announced it is streamlining operations through its plan to acquire Creel Printing Company of California, Inc., and transferring production and equipment to Las Vegas. The move centralizes manufacturing and enhances the company's capabilities.
"Today's customers appreciate partners that are making the investments to stay on the cutting-edge, while keeping overhead costs in check," said Allan G. Creel, President. "We continue to spearhead innovations while making the adjustments to remain value-added. Moving production to Las Vegas will reduce our cost structure and give customers access to expertise across our organization."
The initiative will help customers reduce mailing costs, an important differentiator as the USPS continues to change its fees and requirements. As more programs are executed through Creel, key personnel are staying abreast of late-breaking developments, ensuring all projects take advantage of the most current mandates.
"We have carefully planned the transition to bring our best assets together, while ensuring minimal disruption to workflow," added Creel. "Giving customers advantages in capabilities, service and pricing is our priority."
