FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Postal Center International (PCI) today announced the official opening of its state-of-the-art Weston corporate headquarters and fully integrated production facility. The 234,000-square-foot facility located in the Weston Business Center is now home to more than 250 associates and is the culmination of a year-long effort that included the build-out of the facility, a detailed process mapping workflow and a series of critical investments, including but not limited to, best-in-class equipment, market-leading software and client service enhancements – all designed to provide greater capacity, redundancy, integration and efficiency.
The new headquarters consolidates PCI’s two companies into one centralized operation; provides the Company with a presence close to many of South Florida’s large corporations, clinics and auto retailers in the Weston community; and improves access to many of its enterprise clients throughout South Florida and beyond. The Class A office, warehouse and distribution facility originally developed between 1999 and 2000, is climate-controlled and offers ±30,000 square feet of office space, 30-foot clear heights, 32 dock-high doors, two oversized drive-in ramps, 296 parking spaces, a state-of-the-art, three-tier back-up generator system, a fenced and secured loading area and an Early Suppression, Fast Response (ESFR) fire safety system.
“Our new corporate headquarters builds on our legacy of operating vigor that we have cultivated over the past 35 years,” said Ismael Diaz, president, Postal Center International. “The move comes on the heels of our milestone anniversary, and while we are very much looking ahead, we remain relentlessly focused on delivering our hallmark services while strengthening our position as a technology leader in the print, mail and marketing industry. The move has also laid a foundation for new growth, while creating an environment that inspires passion, collaboration and innovation for years to come.”
Beyond this, the new facility provides PCI with increased associate engagement and extended community outreach efforts in the tri-county area, key components of the Company’s multi-year strategic plan.
