A new facility at 1595 MacArthur Blvd. in Mahwah, N.J., brings all Dimensional Communications Inc. (DCI) operations together under one roof in a completely renovated office designed for maximum creativity and operational efficiency.
The 120,000-square-foot building officially opened for business on Aug. 20 and combines DCI’s design, manufacturing and warehousing operations. The move is the culmination of lengthy planning begun five years ago with the goal of improving the company’s office and warehouse facilities as well as overall operations to better serve customers.
“While some of our competitors have chosen to grow quickly through mergers and acquisitions, Dimensional has always taken a slower approach. Our clients rely on us for unsurpassed service, and we have never been willing to risk seeing that service suffer under a quick growth strategy,” said Doug Fixell, president, DCI. “Our business has steadily increased, and we made a commitment five years ago to upgrade our facilities and our capabilities. This is the culmination of that plan.”
The new building is strategically located in the central part of the Tri-State area about 20 miles from New York City and about a mile south of the New York State Thruway. It contains a large multimedia lab where clients can view project ideas, a new fabrication shop with modern equipment and an improved warehouse facility. The business formally was located in Northvale, N.J., in a building no longer large enough to meet the company’s increased business demands. The old facility also needed significant renovation and upgrades and could be difficult to find for truck drivers.
“We have upgraded our entire operation for maximum efficiency. We started with a blank slate and strategically laid out the space to make the best possible use of every square foot,” said Robert “Burt” Galbraith, director of account management, DCI. “From the time raw materials enter the building until the finished product ships, every step of fabrication has been designed for the greatest possible productivity. The office has been re-designed as well to allow for more collaboration and room for more employees as the business grows.”
DCI helps its clients improve “visitor experiences” through tradeshows, events, retail displays, museum exhibits and corporate interiors. The assistance is provided through custom fabrication services, multimedia systems design and implementation. DCI’s multimedia group, Immersive Realities, provides technology solutions in the exhibit industry, including customized kiosks, indoor and outdoor LED displays, 3-D technology and more.
DCI has been in business for nearly 50 years as a full-service, experiential-marketing company.
