Inventory includes Aurora’s popular Expressions line of printable canvases. © Aurora Specialty Textiles Group Aurora Specialty Textiles Group has opened a new regional Fulfillment Center in Santa Fe Springs, CA, in Los Angeles County, to meet growing demand for Aurora’s extensive family of printable textiles. The new regional warehouse and Fulfillment Center has also been opened to meet growing demand for same day and next day delivery to the company’s West Coast customers.

The centre is stocked with a broad range of printable fabrics in both 60-inch (~1.3 m) and 122-126-inch (~3.2 m) widths. The canvases available here have been engineered to optimise print performance on today’s latest wide format digital printers utilising UV, latex, solvent and dye sublimation ink technologies.

Inventory includes Aurora’s popular Expressions line of printable canvases, which is now available as a full line in five different finishes, three different Oxford weaves and in poly-cotton blends as well as 100% cotton and 100% polyester.

“This is a big step for us and for our West Coast customers,” said Adam Wood, Aurora’s Western Region Manager. “Many have been asking for next-day delivery on orders. They’ll have an idea and want to begin executing it right away, and Aurora’s new Los Angeles warehouse and shipping centre supports them and our commitment to providing exceptional customer service.”

The West Coast Fulfillment Center underscores the advantages of working with a North American manufacturer offering domestically-produced printable textiles. Rather than having to wait days or weeks for shipments, Aurora can fulfil orders for most products within a matter of hours, the company says. Aurora also has a regional Fulfillment Center in Yorkville, IL.

The West Coast Fulfillment Center also represents another step in Aurora’s Investing in American Manufacturing initiative. Three years ago, Aurora opened a new North American manufacturing plant, complete with state-of-the-art, world-class technology to help our customers keep pace with the dynamic, quickly-evolving markets we saw opening in the US and abroad.
