Valencia, CA, October 20, 2012 – Happy 10th Anniversary AMS Fulfillment! It has been 10 years since AMS, a California-based third-party company for warehousing, assembly and order-fulfillment services, first opened its doors with fewer than 30 employees and began operating, growing and creating its future. AMS Fulfillment, a privately owned company, launched its business operation in the Valencia Commerce Center business park in July 2002 in only 30,000 square feet of warehouse space.
Today, the firm occupies nearly one million square feet of space in 13 facilities. During the past ten years AMS not only grew exponentially with regard to space, it grew in clientele; now managing tens of thousands of retail items, product orders and shipments for 40 active retail clients. Also to its credit, AMS now has 375 full time employees, 111 full time temps and 45 part time rotating temps.
In addition to serving order fulfillment clients and creating employment for many people, AMS has served the Santa Clarita Valley community; local charitable organizations; special needs, kids and senior groups and a number of other organizations throughout the years. AMS has also committed to “Green Fulfillment”, recycling, conserving, and minimizing its environmental footprint.
As a means of celebrating the AMS 10th Anniversary, and recognizing the loyalty of long-standing employees, Jay Catlin, President, and CEO, Ken Wiseman, held a special event at the Catlin home. Fourteen employees who have been with AMS since it was founded were the special guests at the event, joined by many of the eight and nine-year employees and their guests.
In praise of the special guests, Catlin said, “Thinking back to where we were 10 years ago, I never could have imagined getting to where we are today. I am so thankful to our great team here at AMS for all you have done along the way, and the vital role you play in our success.”
Under the guidance of Catlin and Wiseman, AMS has built a great reputation in complex retail pick-pack-ship fulfillment and ecommerce, with a client base across a variety of industries including footwear and apparel. By combining dedication to client success, a committed and much appreciated team of employees, and a company-wide sense of responsibility to the community, AMS has grown into a very accomplished 10-year-old expert in order fulfillment services.
