Stratmosphere, Inc. Opens New European-Themed HQ Facility
Stratmosphere Inc. is proud to announce the opening of their all new award-winning, 8,600 sq ft high-tech facility located in Victor, New York, just 70 miles from the legendary Watkins Glen International and within 5 hours drive of New York City.
Stratmosphere’s new facility was conceived and designed with several key goals in mind. The main focus creatively was an effort to reinforce the market leadership and image of Stratmosphere and its customers. This is accomplished in grand fashion immediately upon approach and entry. With an eye towards enticing and educating consumers, this visually stimulating environment is warm and inviting and communicates a powerful “nothing but the best” message. The new facility has just received an AIA award for design excellence.
The new building offers a unique environment for Stratmosphere’s highly-trained tuning consultants, which includes office space surrounded by a dramatic 30 foot high glass radius. To accomplish the goal of significantly reducing shipping time and to help increase order accuracy, the inventory is housed in a specially engineered, high-rise, narrow aisle warehouse that relies upon an automated case-picking vehicle. The remaining module of the facility is reserved for product installations and for Stratmosphere’s comprehensive research and development projects, an area vital to Stratmosphere’s continued growth.
Ultimately, the European styling cues prevalent in the facility reaffirm the company’s commitment to exceed the wants and expectations of the customers who have come to expect the same from Stratmosphere’s goods and services.
Recently acclaimed customer tuning projects have included: 2007 Audi RS 4’s, 2007 Porsche 997 Turbo’s, 2006 Porsche Cayman S’s, 2006 VW Golf GTI MkV’s, 2007 BMW 335i twin-turbo and a vast array of other Audi, Porsche, VW and Mini automobiles.
