Heidi Reimer-Epp, CEO of Botanical PaperWorks, shares some exciting news about our expanding facilities: I\u2019m so excited to announce that Botanical PaperWorks is growing once again. We\u2019re taking on more space and doubling the size of our production facility and offices. We\u2019ve been in the same space for 11 years, and thanks to continuous improvements, we\u2019ve been able to double, then triple our production output in this same space. We\u2019re now in the same position as we were 11 years ago when we first moved into 111 Pacific Ave. At that time, we were in a facility on Cumberland Avenue, and we were bursting at the seams. In fact, our FedEx delivery man once remarked \u201cYou have people stacked in here like cordwood,\u201d and he was right. In case you haven\u2019t stacked firewood in a while, here\u2019s what a cord of wood looks like: It felt like we were stacked one upon the other! Our bookkeeper Betty worked off of a card table that she set up in a hallway on the days that she was in the office. I had given up my office and worked out of the storage area, shoulder-to-shoulder with the extra shipping boxes and reams of printer paper. This time around, we\u2019re not quite as jammed, thank goodness. But we\u2019ve maxed out the number of desks in our admin area, and we\u2019re ready to expand our production area and expand our capacity. It\u2019s going to be great to have some elbow room again and to pursue some new opportunities. We were so lucky with the timing. Just as we were getting ready to renew our lease for our current space, our excellent landlord Bob Brown of Leon A. Brown Limited let us know that the space next door was available. This was an amazing (and surprise) gift to us because we love the area that we\u2019re in and wanted to stay. The East Exchange of Winnipeg has grown up around us over the last 11 years and these are the golden years that we want to enjoy, where development has brought more residents and office workers to the area along with new restaurants and recreational facilities. Fast forward to today, and I'm receiving the keys and doing a walk-through. And just like that, we are at the start of a new chapter for Botanical PaperWorks. What amazing things are going to happen in this 11,000 square feet of space? Time will tell, but I\u2019m certain it\u2019s going to be a wonderful adventure, just like the previous two decades have been!
