Condit Exhibits today announced the expansion of their main offices and warehousing facilities into a newly designed space in downtown Denver. The added space meets both the physical requirements to maintain future growth and also adds synergies to Condit’s business operations, creative design, and warehousing teams.
The new office opens at an opportune time as Condit’s president, Mike McGowan, noted that the current facilities are “bursting at the seams” due to the substantial growth Condit has experienced the past few years building custom trade show exhibits and structures. Richard Raedeke, VP of Operations, noted “we’ll be growing together at our new facility and the added collaboration between our team members is only going to improve our already highly lauded client experience.” This is the third such move in Condit’s near 70-year history to keep up with expansion and business growth.
Condit Exhibits began serving clients in the Denver area as a family run company in 1945 with a small storefront on Colfax and three artists. While Condit had expanded to over a dozen talented individuals by the mid 1960’s, it was clear a new facility was needed to accommodate the continued growth of the business. In 1976, Condit Exhibits opened the doors at its current location at 500 W. Tennessee Ave. expanding its footprint in downtown Denver. Fast forward to today, Condit Exhibits utilizes over 87,000 sq/ft of space and is still growing rapidly as the top Denver trade show exhibit company. It became clear to both Condit’s President, as well as its VP of Operations, that bringing everything together under a “new roof, and a big roof at that” was required to continue Condit’s expansion.
After an exhaustive search of the greater Denver area, Condit found a building that not just suited their physical requirements but also a location which would create the least impact on their people.
The new facility is located at the Colorado Trade Center on 5151 Bannock Street and covers 108,000 sq/ft, providing ample space for current operations and an opportunity to double in size when future business requires it. Condit is currently retrofitting the space to maintain the same trendy, cool culture and function so synonymous with their main office on Tennessee Ave. A move of this magnitude requires a great deal of care and the process is detailed below:
- Stage 1: April, 2012 – The warehouse and trade show exhibit services operations will be transitioning into the new facility. Condit’s planning team have already staged the move and have ensured ample time and support to make the move as smooth as possible.
- Stage 2: Q4-2012 & Q1-2013 – The main offices and manufacturing operations will move into the newly retrofitted/remodeled office space. The remodel itself is being coordinated with Condit’s creative design team to ensure the infrastructure and space truly captures the Condit feel.
The Condit team looks forward to the move and the ability to better serve their clients at the new office.
