Midlothian, TX (PRWEB) September 2, 2010
Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas. (PRWEB) September 2, 2010 -- PepWear, LLC, a leading national decorated apparel and recognition plaque company, dedicated to recognizing and celebrating student achievements, announced today that it will be relocating its headquarters from Midlothian, Texas to Cedar Hill, Texas.
The company plans to break ground within 2-3 months on a new, 32,000 square foot facility at the Cedar Hill Business Park located at 1540 High Meadows Way in Cedar Hill, TX. The new facility will house office, showroom, production and warehouse space for PepWear's 50+ employees.
Although Event Merchandise sales is the largest part of PepWear's business, the Company has been focusing on growing its Custom Order business. In 2009, Custom Order sales grew by more than 30% and similar growth is projected for 2010 as well. As a result, PepWear has outgrown its present location and in January of this year, PepWear's President, Craig Johnson, began looking for a place to relocate the Company. After an extensive search across the southern DFW Metroplex, it became clear that an existing building was not going to meet PepWear's needs. At that point the decision was made to build from scratch and a search for the ideal site was begun.
“We chose to build in Cedar Hill for many reasons: the reasonable commute for our employees, itsexcellent proximity to major highways, the attractive commercial development and a progressive City management. When we saw the Cedar Hill Business Park, owned by the Cedar Hill Economic Development Corporation (CHEDC) we were very impressed. Then, when the CHEDC offered us an attractive package of incentives to locate there, the decision was easy," said Mr. Johnson.
The City of Cedar Hill is also delighted about the addition of PepWear to the Cedar Hill Business Park. “PepWear is a natural fit for Cedar Hill. Our business park has the city services the growing company needs and the company’s culture is a great match with our community. We are excited that PepWear chose Cedar Hill as its new home,” said Allison J.H. Thompson, Economic Development Director for the City of Cedar Hill.
