Downers Grove, Illinois (08/01/04) - Jet has announced the opening of a new 50,000 square foot production, distribution and warehousing facility in Bolingbrook, Illinois. The center allows the company to further expand its services to accommodate larger and more complex jobs with greater efficiency. The Bolingbrook location, situated at one of the Midwest’s largest distribution hubs, was strategically selected to streamline production processes and trim turnaround times. In addition, Jet gained more working space and nearly doubled the number of rack positions in its warehouse.
With the new facility, Jet integrated affixing, bindery, fulfillment, digital print and warehousing under one roof. In addition, state-of-the-art technology is utilized to communicate with customers and with the main Downers Grove facility, providing accurate tracking and control. From deliveries to shipping, every step of every project is monitored continually.
“We have gained much more than space. Jet has a reputation for innovation, and we are very excited about what this new facility allows us to do for our customers,” said the company’s President George Bogdanovic. “We have improved our production capabilities and we enhanced our ability to provide our customers with accurate, up-to-the-minute information.”
Jet believes the operating efficiencies and seamless production made possible by the new facility will greatly enhance customer service and satisfaction. “Our customers appreciate the combined benefits of flexibility, information and quality. The vast amount of space we have gained allows us to flex to meet the demands of our projects,” explained Tony Emerson, Jet’s Fulfillment Manager. “Our skilled work force is cross-trained for maximum functionality. Work in process is easily transferred from one area of the plant to another as needed with staging areas to ensure product integrity.”
