On June 11th, Vantage hosted a grand opening of the new Vantage Regional Service Center at their GAL Manufacturing location in the Bronx, New York. The event drew a crowd of more than 70 customers, suppliers and partners who all joined in the celebrations. Guided tours of the facilities were accompanied by a barbecue, a meet and greet, and musical entertainment – followed by a visit to neighboring Yankee Stadium to see the Yankees take on the Mets.
The Vantage Northeast Service Center is the latest in a string of regional Vantage hubs to open across North America, where each location serves as a key outlet for the whole suite of Vantage products. In addition to a warehouse stocked with a wide range of spare parts, these centers also provide local resources for sales, engineering, training, and overall support.
Eric Lazear, Regional Vice President of Vantage Northeast, is excited about the benefits the service center will bring to the region. “This is a great opportunity for us to better serve Vantage customers here in New York City and throughout the Northeast,” he explains. “Having a central location for products from GAL as well as from Hollister-Whitney, Courion, Elevator Controls, and Bore-Max, makes life easier for everyone. It means we can get products to customers quicker, as the whole logistics process becomes smoother and more convenient.”
The new Service Center is now officially open for business and can be found on 153rd Street in the Bronx, immediately adjacent to the North entrance of the GAL Manufacturing plant. Its operating hours are Monday – Friday from 7:00am – 4:30pm, and the regional service team can be reached at (646) 847-6627, or by emailing Eric Lazear direct at firstname.lastname@example.org.
