Grand opening, cutting red ribbon

S.P. Richards opened a new corporate headquarters in Smyrna, Georgia in February, just months after a fire wiped out its primary warehouse, reports ISSA.

The new facility, which plays host to the company’s corporate staff, inside sales staff and national customer service team, also features an ultramodern training room.

“We were fortunate to find the ideal space and location for our employees, customers, and partners following the fire at our former headquarters building last summer,” says Rick Toppin, president and CEO of S.P. Richards.  “Our new work environment, featuring an open space concept with a great deal of collaborative workspace, will provide operational efficiencies across the organization and help us serve our key stakeholders.”
