VAUGHAN, ON, Oct. 2, 2017 /CNW/ - Grand & Toy, a B2B office products and service provider serving Canadian customers via a direct salesforce and advanced e-commerce platform, has moved its head office from Don Mills to Vaughan. An existing Grand & Toy facility, the office in Vaughan has undergone an extensive renovation in order to create an inviting and modern work environment. It will also serve as a visual extension of the brand and showcase Grand & Toy's various office furniture solutions.
"Moving our head office to Vaughan is a positive milestone for Grand &Toy," said Stan Dabic, Vice President, Canada at Grand & Toy. "The merging of these two locations will create a cohesive team and a collaborative environment that will centralize operations – all great benefits to the entire organization and our customers."
The move will unite 465 employees under its new roof, including local sales, support and customer fulfillment teams. Grand & Toy is using the move to reinforce a strong and positive office culture at a time where the traditional office has transformed dramatically. The newly redesigned Vaughan space has moved away from individual workstations, for a more collaborative office environment. New features include conference rooms with state of the art technology, as well as quiet and flexible workspaces for a comfortable, home-like environment. In the place of a traditional cafeteria, there will be a micro-market to cater to all appetites and needs throughout the day. By allocating resources to the new innovative design, employees will be able to embrace Grand & Toy's values, passion and energy while helping support the needs of Canadian businesses.
Choosing Vaughan was an easy decision, as the city is diverse and rapidly growing, offering great potential for Grand & Toy. With its access to major highways, population growth, and steady household income growth year after year, Vaughan is a city that provides strong opportunities for businesses to thrive.
"We're excited to embark on this new chapter in the Grand & Toy story and plant our roots in Vaughan," said Dabic. "As we continue to evolve and proudly serve our customers with unique products and services, we recognize that it's necessary to create the right environment and empower our employees with the right tools."
The transition to the new office will be officially complete as of October 2, 2017. The new office will be located at 200 Aviva Park Drive, Vaughan, Ontario.
