MOREHEAD CITY, N.C. (PRWEB) December 11, 2020
The Tackle Room recently announced a move to a larger operations center. This relocation is a sizable upgrade for the company as it celebrates its fifth year in business.
“Moving our facility was an important move for us as we strive to keep up with heightened demand for saltwater fishing gear”. says Matthew Zook, Co-Owner at The Tackle Room. “2020 is shaping up to be an outstanding year for us in terms of sales and process improvement, we absolutely outgrew our previous location. The upgrade was necessary to house inventory and maintain our shipping standards”.
This news comes as The Tackle Room wraps up another busy year. Despite the obvious hurdles of Covid 19 and its impact on global supply chains, The Tackle Room has grown considerably in 2020.
- Order volume increased significantly as families spent more time outdoors and on the water during the Covid-19 pandemic.
- Staff has been expanded in 2020 to keep up with increased order volume and customer service needs. Multiple employees have joined the team and helped to provide council and shipping services to a growing number of customers.
- Product lines have grown by 35% in the last 12 months, providing anglers with more specific options in the form of lures, tools, and terminal tackle for saltwater fishing.
- Domestically sourced product options have been a major focus of the company. Products such as stainless-steel bait trays and Epic E-Shield piano wire are sourced in the USA, fueling local jobs in smaller communities.
“We are proud of our growth, especially coming from such humble beginnings a mere five years ago” says Bryan Byrd, Co-Owner at The Tackle Room. “The fishing industry is hyper-competitive, and we’ve found one of the best ways to grow is by providing the best customer service we possibly can”.
