Project Clair: Trevco Opening Operations in West Valley City
The Economic Development Corporation of Utah (EDCUtah) and the Governor’s Office of Economic Development (GOED) are pleased to announce that Trevco is opening a manufacturing and distribution center in West Valley City, bringing upwards of 50 new jobs to Utah.
“Utah’s consistently business friendly environment attracted Trevco to our state,” said Val Hale, GOED executive director. “The company will also find our state’s hard-working talent base well suited for manufacturing and distribution jobs.”
Headquartered outside of Detroit, MI, Trevco helps 800+ of the world’s most beloved licensed brands materialize their vision through the manufacturing and selling of licensed consumer products, such as branded apparel. Through their acquisition of California-based Graphics and More, the company also offers print on demand accessories and drinkware. Products include tech accessories, jewelry, home goods, stickers, and automotive accessories.
“Our recent acquisition of Graphics and More has created a road map for significant scale through e-commerce,” said Trevor George, Trevco CEO. “Utah and its central location in the west, allows us to reach our e-commerce customers more quickly and cost effectively”
Trevco is leasing a 50,000-SF facility in West Valley City and anticipates $850,000 in capital expenditures to get operations up and running. The company expects to fill up to 50 new jobs by the end of the year, including warehouse and machining positions. In addition, Trevco anticipates additional growth in future years and may pursue higher seasonal hiring during high-demand periods.
The company looked at locations elsewhere in the Western U.S. as part of its due diligence. Rusty Bollow of the Salt Lake City office of Colliers International was instrumental in highlighting to Trevco the real estate assets and advantages of Utah.
“Trevco executives visited Utah and were excited with what they saw, then the COVID-19 pandemic hit and the project went on hold,” said Theresa A. Foxley, EDCUtah president and CEO. “We’re grateful that the company continued to monitor the situation and reengaged with Colliers and us. We’re excited to welcome their operations to our state and connect them to the business resources our investor base represents.”
