Barth & Dreyfuss shifts HQ to Burbank
February 11, 2002-- Home Textiles Today,
Barth & Dreyfuss recently streamlined its operations and relocated its headquarters from Los Angeles to a smaller, "more efficient" office complex here, said Howard Galperson, senior vp, sales. The new offices are located at 2255 North Ontario Street.
"It was the final piece of the reorganization of our company," Galperson told HTT. "We've spent the past few years consolidating the parts of our business that were not efficient; we've added a new computer system; and we source so much now that all we still do in California is print."
Barth & Dreyfuss' Los Angeles headquarters was 150,000 square feet, and it included embroidery, cut-and-sew and warehousing facilities, as well as office spaces. The new site, a leased space at an office complex, is about 10,000 square feet.
"As our business grew — and we grew our product categories — we've streamlined our operations; we're fortunate to have moved to a nice, big office complex. Before, we were in downtown Los Angeles, and the area was becoming not what it used to be. But Burbank is beautiful and has a great business campus environment," Galperson said.
