In an effort to consolidate and enhance its production, Mustang Survival will be moving to its new Canadian headquarters in Burnaby, BC in late October. Mustang's new 43,800 square feet headquarters will be located at 7525 Lowland Drive.
The new location, approximately 20 minutes away by car from its current location in Richmond, BC, will continue to be the headquarters for Mustang's key operational divisions and Canadian manufacturing facility. It will be home to Mustang's executive and key operation teams including research and product development, business development, sales and marketing, and manufacturing.
According to the company, the transition will be seamless and will not affect North American operations.
“The decision to move our Canadian headquarters is a strategic step in bringing our key operations and manufacturing capabilities under one roof for increased collaboration, productivity and efficiency,” said Bob Askew, Mustang's President and CEO. “We're looking forward to continuing our success and reaching more milestones in our new Burnaby location.”
Mustang's new headquarters will feature a state-of-the-art testing facility, including a pool specifically equipped for researching and testing the latest product prototypes and industry innovations. The new facility also provides enough space that Mustang has flexibility for future expansion.
Cindy Cheung, Mustang Survival's Marketing Services Manager explained that although the new office space is about the same size, the real advantage of the move is the switch from two buildings to one. “We're also moving into a new open concept office, where the departments are now logistically and physically closer to each other, making cross-department communication and collaboration easier and more convenient,” says Cheung. “Our warehouse square footage will be smaller and much of our inventory will now be at our Spencer, West Virginia location. Our manufacturing capacity stays the same, but we're expecting increased productivity and synergies due to the operation and production teams all residing in one building.”
