Pine Brook, NJ, April 21, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- Bell-Mark Corporation, a leading supplier of Coding, Printing & Marking equipment, announces the opening of a new temporary 24,000 square foot space for its Assembly operations. The new facility was needed after one of the buildings at the companies Dover, PA location, was destroyed by a fire on Thursday April 12.
The company has released this statement to its customers today:
To all of our valuable customers,
By now, you may have heard about the fire that destroyed one building at our plant in PA. If you would like to read the company’s official statement about the fire, please log onto http://www.bell-mark.com/press/bmt_fire_04132007.html
Fortunately no one was seriously injured, and business will continue to operate normally. Although very few processes in our day-to-day operation have been affected by this incident, you may have noticed that our ink cartridges may appear to look a little different than you are used to seeing. The absence of the white label on the top of the cartridge is the only thing that has changed. Don’t worry though, the ink is the same quality product that you’ve trusted from Bell-Mark for years.
At Bell-Mark, we believe that an open dialog with our customers is not only something we preach, but also what we practice. That is why we encourage this communication from you, and why we are calling this temporary label change to your attention. And it is just that, a temporary change.
Also, in case you were wondering, we’ve just acquired a new 24,000 square foot space for our Assembly staff, which will service their needs during the next 6 months to a year, while we re-build a new state of the art facility at our Dover, PA location. Our new facility will be fully equipped with new technologies, which will greatly increase our ability to continue designing innovative printing equipment and servicing our customers more efficiently. We will continue to keep you posted on future progress.
If you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to ask. Remember, we are here for you, and we look forward to maintaining the same great working relationship that we have enjoyed through the years.
