Premier Displays and Exhibits to Break Ground on 100,000 Square Foot Facility
Premier Displays and Exhibits, Inc. (PDE) announces the relocation of its corporate headquarters from Cypress, California to Las Vegas as part of a ceremony breaking ground on a 100,000 square foot manufacturing facility and office complex in the southwest valley. Clark County Commissioner Justin Jones joined representatives from PDE, the Las Vegas Global Economic Alliance and Hilti, Inc. for the celebration.
The project will create approximately 150 construction jobs and, when fully operational in mid- 2020, will create 125 permanent jobs, as well as relocating 25 corporate executives and production managers to southern Nevada. The new facility is projected to generate $45 million in annual revenue, with a general economic impact $65.5 million in Clark County, according to a study by RCG Economics. The new manufacturing facility and corporate headquarters will be built by local contractor, Modern Elements Construction.
In operation since 1991, Premier Displays and Exhibits, Inc. is a vertically-integrated, full-service exhibit house specializing in the design, fabrication and activation of custom experiential marketing environments for conventions, tradeshows, retail ships and special events. The company also maintains a vast inventory of unique accessories available for implementation at trade shows, events and promotions anywhere in the world. The Las Vegas facility will introduce advanced design and fabrication technology and create opportunities for expansion into new markets beyond the tradeshow and convention industry.
“The move to southern Nevada was a no-brainer,” said Chris Bullard, President and CEO of Premier Displays and Exhibits. “The business climate and tax structure in Nevada is unparalleled, and we will be able to take advantage of the close proximity to one of the most forward-thinking convention cities in the world and the extraordinary transportation access to market destinations across the country and the globe. We are confident that moving to Las Vegas will add great value to our long-term objectives and to our continued business development and growth.”
PDE representatives worked closely with the Las Vegas Global Economic Alliance (LVGEA) in preparation for the expansion into Las Vegas. Jonas Peterson, President and CEO of the LVGEA, said, “It is exciting to see Premier Displays relocate their headquarters and facilities to Southern Nevada. It’s a great region to do business, and their relocation will bring a lot of value to the community. We are excited to welcome their staff and families, and we eagerly anticipate dozens of new jobs for our current residents on the Premier Displays team.”
In addition to the manufacturing centers in southern California and Las Vegas, PDE also operates a production facility in New Jersey, as well as has several production partnerships with facilities in Texas, Europe and the Far East. In addition to convention and trade show exhibits, the company also specializes in designing branded consumer environments for retailers such as Skechers and homebuilders such as KB Homes. “We believe that the collaborative process we’ve used in creating innovative branded environments can revolutionize the way other industries reach their consumers as well,” said Bullard.
