2018 was an exciting year for Prestige International, we took on new products, attended many trade shows and moved our offices to a new, updated location. Here is the recap of Prestige Internationals best year yet.
This year we took on two new products, the Mousetrapper and Koncept Lighting. Mousetrapper is a mousing alternative similar to a track pad. This central pointing device has a unique product with a great feel. Koncept is a modern looking LED task lighting line with multiple models and colors to go with any office or workstation. These two product lines are great for a healthy working environment.
Trade shows were also a highlight of 2018 for Prestige International. Prestige itself attended Applied Ergonomics, Ergo Expo, ALA and WB Mason. We also exhibited out of manufacturers booths at CES (Penclic) and Safety 2018 (Mousetrapper.) These shows are a great way to show off all of our product lines and expose them to the general and ergonomic markets.
The biggest thing to ever happen to this company also happened in 2018 as well. We moved our offices and warehouse. In our old location had both our warehouse and offices in one building and now they are separate. We moved are office down the road to a updated building and our warehouse to Florida, to a bigger location. This move was a necessary one as while we are expanding and finding more success more space was needed.
2018 was a good year for Prestige International and we have a feeling that 2019 is going to continue this success.
Last week saw us attend the Ergo Expo at Paris Hotel in Las Vegas and it was a total success and a great experience. There were many new attendees this year that were able to try out all of our products for the first time. We were also able to show off our newest manufacturers and their products, that did not attend last years Ergo Expo
Mousetrapper, Score and Sit Stand Smart Mats attended the show for the first time and we received tremendous feedback on all their products. Our staple manufacturers, Evoluent, Hippus, Microdesk, Penclic, and Bakker Elkhuizen, were also there showing off both new and old products, Bakker even invested in a larger booth. We even showed off the new Koncept lights in the Prestige International Booth.
Like every year, Ergo Expo was a great experience and we saw a ton of new and old faces. We look forward to next year show and what it has in store.
If you read our last post you would know that we are changing warehouses and moving our shipping operations down to Florida. This new warehouse is larger and more up to date to accommodate the increase in business and orders that we have had over the last several months.
The moving trucks had arrived Sunday and the warehouse is now ready and operational. Sherry, Marc and Shorty all put in hard work and were able to get it up and running ahead of schedule.
This move was much needed as we have been in our old location since March of 1997. This location is a vast improvement over our old building, although with so much history in the old place it will be missed.
Our offices are currently still based in our old building until the end of the month, so stay tuned for Phase 2 of our move, when we change offices.
As many of you know Prestige International is moving it’s warehouse and main office to accommodate our growth, and the today is the day we start the first part of that move.
Today we started the process of shipping all of the products and supplies in our existing warehouse to move to our new warehouse in Florida. Right now our warehouse is a mess with boxes everywhere, but by the end of the day everything will be in the truck and off to its new home.
The new warehouse will be a modern building with more amenities that will allow for a more streamline and effective shipping process. We are also bringing our office currently in the state into the same building to create one location in Florida.
Below are some more pictures of the move which we will update you on when they later this week and finish setting up the new warehouse next week.
Yesterday Mousetrapper wrapped up Safety 2018 in San Antonio and boy was it a great experience.
Lance from Prestige and Anders from Mousetrapper enjoyed interacting with everyone that stopped by the booth and showing them the different designs Mousetrapper has to offer.. The attendees were always up to learning about the products and how it can change the way you use a computer.
The city of San Antonio and ASSE could not have been better hosts. San Antonio has a great atmosphere, restaurants, sights and sounds that made the stay there even more enjoyable. ASSE put on a flawless show that made it easy for us to set up, interact and share our information.
Now that Safety 2018 is in the books we can’t wait to see what other shows Prestige has on the horizon and cant wait until we come back next year, with our own booth.
One of our newest manufacturers, Mouse Trapper, will be attending Safety 2018, in San Antonio, TX, from Sunday June 3rd to Tuesday June 5th. Mouse Trapper will be demonstrating their line of ergonomic central pointing devices.
These central pointing devices are great alternatives for people that have pain or injuries that prevent them from doing the normal movements required when using a standard mouse or other ergonomic mousing devices.
If their products interest you and you are in the San Antonio area, or attending the expo, stop by booth 862 and speak to Anders from Mouse Trapper or Lance from Prestige International and they will be happy to show you their products.
