North Virginia Company Expands to Nevada

Marc Katz, co-founder and president of CustomInk, an East Coast company that makes custom T-shirts, says his company’s decision to expand West with a northern Nevada facility was made primarily to provide better service to western region customers.

CustomInk, headquartered at Tysons Corner, Va., leased 25,000 square feet at Capital Commerce Center off East McCarran Boulevard. The company expects to employ between 75 and 100 workers once the facility is fully operational, Katz says.

Katz says that although the company’s two eastern locations stay open until 10 p.m. Eastern Standard Time, a facility based in a western state allows for quicker turnaround times on orders and extended service hours. CustomInk, founded in 2000, has annual revenues of $83 million and does all of its business online.

“Having a Reno location allows us to take advantage of the different time zone and logistics.” Katz says. “We will be able to have greatly improved customer service coverage and delivery times.”
