Amherst, N.Y. - Stampede has leased a new 44,000-square-foot facility, here, where it will consolidate the company's corporate headquarters and main distribution center.
Stampede, a distributor of presentation and home-theater technology, is currently based in Depew, N.Y., and its main distribution center is in Grand Island, N.Y.
Stampede's new space includes: a wall of windows that will make the warehouse viewable from the sales floor; technology to simplify remote training and communication with the company's new field sales offices; enhanced employee, supplier and customer training facilities; additional conference space, a better warehouse layout and room to accommodate future growth; and an employee picnic area, gym and shower facilities.
The location in Amherst, a suburb about 15 miles northeast of Buffalo, is close to the Buffalo/Niagara International Airport and the company's Canadian headquarters in Mississauga, Ontario.
Stampede's move to the new facility begins this week, with the distribution center to be fully transitioned to the Amherst location by July 27, 2009. The build-out of the 10,000-square-foot office space and move of corporate headquarters is expected to be complete by late September.
