Printful Relocates North to the SCV
The Santa Clarita Valley Economic Development Corporation is pleased to announce that Printful, a print-on-demand service based in Charlotte, N.C. is relocating its California facility from Chatsworth to the Santa Clarita Valley, in the Valencia Commerce Center. This new location is triple the size of the Chatsworth site, which will accommodate their increased production demands.
The property, located at 28220 Industry Drive, features 93,000 SF of building space. Craig Peters from CBRE represented the landlord and Printful was represented by Dairis Zarins, Director of Operations at Printful. The hope is to have the facility fully renovated and operational before the holiday season in November.
Printful, founded in 2013, prints, packs, and ships custom-branded clothing, accessories, as well as home and business items. Printful is a fast-growing company with over 1,600 employees and nine fulfillment centers worldwide. Their revenue reached a peak of $116 million in 2019.
This relocation may only be 25 minutes north on the 5 freeway, but it brings huge growth opportunity to Printful. This move expects to generate 100 new jobs, which will double the size of their California team. According to Chief Executive Davis Siksnans, they are investing $10 million in additional direct-to-garment printers and equipment for embroidery and poster printing at the new SCV facility. The hope is to have the facility fully renovated and operational before the holiday season in November.
“California is Printful’s busiest state in terms of deliveries. It’s necessary to stay in this area and expand our operations to fulfill the needs of our ever-growing customer base, and since L.A. is home to central shipping hubs, we’ll be able to maintain fast delivery times,” added Siksnans.
