June 17, 2009
Madison, WI â€“ Full Compass, one of the nation's largest professional audio, video, A/V and lighting equipment retailers has begun moving into its new 140,000 square foot facility located in the Silicon Prairie Business Park in Madison, WI. Due to the enormous task of moving the retail, rental and warehouse inventory, the move will take approximately two weeks to complete. Full occupancy is expected by July 1st.
Full Compass has experienced rapid growth during the past 31 years and has outgrown three previous locations. The new warehouse will span 80,000 square feet, double its current size, and will allow Full Compass to stock more than 100,000 products. The new building also features a sound equipment museum, two fully equipped production studios and a restaurant with a full-time chef. The building rests on 15 acres of land, allowing the facility to double in size for future expansions.
"I'm often asked if I envisioned Full Compass as it is today," CEO Jonathan Lipp said. "The answer is yes. I always dream big." He added "After we settle in, I look forward to getting back to the business of making Full Compass as great as it can be."
"We are thrilled to be moving into our new building" President Susan Lipp stated, "It's an extremely colorful and engaging space."
Full Compass will host an open house October 22-24 with live music.
