We are extremely pleased to announce that our Shur-Co® of Vermillion location is Now Open for Business! This project has been in the works for several months and we are excited to get our team going with sales, service and distribution. In conjunction with this location opening, we will be closing our installation service at the Outlet Store in Yankton and the Shur-Co® of Iowa location in Fort Dodge, consolidating their operations to Vermillion.
While the Vermillion location is technically starting from scratch, the team is not lacking from experience. Tom Tacke, our Yankton Factory Outlet Store Manager since 1998 when it first opened its doors, will be joining Nelson as the Shop Supervisor, overseeing tarp production, the service bays and shipping. Tom is well-known in the Yankton-Vermillion area and will bring the same high level of personalized service those area customers they have been accustomed to receiving in Yankton.
We will continue offering customer pick-up of orders in Yankton that have been ordered in advance and prepaid. This option will also be available for those customers with established terms. For further information on how to schedule a pickup in Yankton, please call our customer service team at 800-474-8756.
The consolidation of operations from Sioux Falls (April closure), Fort Dodge and our Yankton Outlet Store (December transitions) to Vermillion is very exciting because we are able to expand our service and production capabilities. At the same time it has resulted in a lot of changes both internally and for our customers. We recognize these changes do not impact all customers in the same manner, but it remains our mission to always provide a high level of customer service to every single one of our customers regardless of which Shur-Co® location is providing that service.
Conveniently located just 5 minutes from the I-29 exit to Vermillion along South Dakota Highway 52, Shur-Co of Vermillion provides walk-in sales support, product distribution, installation services and tarp fabrication for our Shur-Co®, ShurTite™ and Donovan® brands. It will also be a key sales and distribution point for our full line of cargo control products.
