Screen Innovations Expands Austin Headquarters
Last summer, Screen Innovations took a unique—albeit pretty seamless—step into the shading business. Of course, the company is still very firmly rooted in its home theater screen business, so in an effort to keep their pace of growth going, the company announced plans to expand their headquarters in Austin, Texas. As SI continues its national shade dealer on boarding, the company will add 50,000 square feet to its international HQ, which will include new office space and an expanded warehouse.
“Our dealers’ acceptance of our new product designs has been very rewarding. We invest in our company because we’re here to change dealers’ lives, as they have changed ours,” Ryan Gustafson, Founder and Visionary at SI, said in a statement. “We are truly thankful for them and how they continue to contribute to our success.”
In the statement, SI explained that in the expansion are investments in screen and shade manufacturing machinery, which will more than double their production capacity. That, in turn, will help SI reduce their lead times and enable faster order throughput via programs like their three-day quick build. Additionally, SI will expand their R&D and Engineering departments as part of this investment.
