Tukaiz Opens 120,000-Square-Foot Fulfillment Center in Franklin Park, IL, to Meet Customer Demand
FRANKLIN PARK, IL—December 17, 2014—Tukaiz, a leading marketing services production company, announces that its new 120,000-square-foot fulfillment center is now fully functional. Located at the company’s headquarters campus, the fulfillment center replaces a two-story building that Tukaiz acquired, then completely gutted and refitted to meet its own exacting specifications. The new center is equipped with modern storage capabilities designed for fast, efficient access, as well as up-to-the-minute sustainable fixtures, such as LED lighting and energy-saving heating, A/C and ventilation systems. The firm’s finishing department also has been relocated to the new space so that customer orders can be finished and stored on-site and/or assembled and packaged quickly to ensure on-time delivery, even to multiple destinations.
The fulfillment center supports Tukaiz clients who are attracted to the company’s end-to-end capabilities, which include advertising and creative; software development; offset, digital and large-format print production and inventory management and fulfillment. Those utilizing the company’s Backstage integrated marketing and inventory software already have benefited from the firm’s flexible and extensive fulfillment and shipping services. The additional space allows Tukaiz to accommodate growing demand from these customers and others looking for efficient end-to-end production and fulfillment that significantly improves product quality and reduces time-to-market.
A special feature of the fulfillment center is its security, which strictly limits access to certain areas of the building in order to keep sensitive customer products under wraps. These can take the form of promotional materials with codes that consumers can submit for special discounts, or even for storage of exclusive or expensive "giveaway" items for customers.
"We’re proud of our new fulfillment center, which has been a work in progress for several months while it was being renovated," said Carl Rozkuszka, director of operations for Tukaiz. "We now have much needed space to better serve both our existing and new customers. Locating the finishing division in the same building improves our internal efficiencies for getting our customers’ orders completed and shipped more quickly—sometimes on a same-day schedule."
The fulfillment center is located adjacent to the company’s headquarters building. It brings the Tukaiz campus to a total of 250,000 square feet, with approximately 245 employees in all divisions.
