Cirkers, celebrating more than 150 years of storing, packing and transporting fine art in Manhattan, has opened a second state-of-the-art facility in the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York. Cirkers handles important art pieces, objects and other valuables for collectors, galleries, art dealers and museums. The new facility will expand Cirkers’ capabilities significantly, and offer another art-centric element to the vibrant artist’s community of Williamsburg.
The new 35,000-square-foot Williamsburg facility offers enhanced capabilities that advance Cirkers’ reputation as one of the foremost art storage companies in the world. Temperature and climate-controlled, the Williamsburg facility and has been outfitted with industry-leading security and fire detection systems, which are monitored 24/7. With rooms ranging from 40 to 1500 square feet, and open storage available for oversized objects, Cirkers Williamsburg can accommodate a wide range of artwork and a diverse variety of storage and display requests by its clients. An expanded crate shop provides augmented packing, crating and transportation services to better serve its international client base.
“What makes Cirkers truly special is our concierge service model, which has been designed to help clients enjoy a worry-free experience from the point of purchase to the transfer of the works to their storage or eventual display,” says Andrew Hamilton, Cirkers senior vice president and general manager. “The new Williamsburg facility allows us to expand those services considerably, with enhanced packing and transport capabilities, more display and storage square footage, and more highly trained logistics experts.”
