Vistaprint Completes Expansion At Canadian Facility

Press release from the issuing company

Vistaprint North American Services Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of Vistaprint Limited, the company that provides high-impact personalized products and services for small businesses and the home, today announced that it has completed another phased expansion of its North American manufacturing facility in Windsor, Ontario.

The expansion is one of several planned phases for the facility which opened in 2005, and added nearly 140,000 square feet of manufacturing and office space. Along with reaffirming the company's commitment to the area and people of Windsor - who have been valuable partners for nearly five years - the new expansion incorporated a multitude of green initiatives to reduce energy consumption. This phase of the expansion was completed during Vistaprint's 2009 fiscal year, which ended on June 30, 2009.

The expansion was completed by the Rosati Group and followed industry guidelines for sustainable construction. These efforts include: the use of natural light available from the plant's skylights and coated windows, high efficiency light fixtures, heating and cooling systems based on a central plant design, occupancy sensors in offices, break areas and conference rooms, improved insulation quality and improved humidity control.

"Over the past year, both the company's customer base and product lines have continued to increase and this expansion will enable Vistaprint to meet the projected demand of our North American customer base," said President of Vistaprint North America, Wendy Cebula. "This new construction has also enabled the company to implement advancements in green technology to reduce the plant's carbon footprint while still expanding."

The expansion, started in summer of 2008, includes over 80,000 square feet of production space and 39,000 square feet of office space, bringing the facility's total area to just under 300,000 square feet. The Windsor plant is responsible for the fulfillment of the company's orders in North America. On a daily basis, Vistaprint processes an average of 44,000 orders at its facilities in Windsor and Venlo, the Netherlands.
