After just over a year at its current location, Bogati Urn Company is on the move again. The company closed July 17, 2020 on its fourth location in 11 years and will officially make the move over Labor Day weekend.
“It didn’t take long at our current location to realize that between new products, a significant increase in new customers, and brisk sales we would soon need even more space,” said company founder, Andrea Bogard LeBlanc. “When a larger space I’d been eyeing for a while became available, I knew I had to jump on it to continue Bogati’s growth.”
Bogati is headed back to Northgate Business Park in Sarasota, FL, which is where the company was located for nine years prior to moving to its current location. The new building is 30,886-square-feet, more than twice its current space of 14,400-square-feet. Most notably it features an air-conditioned warehouse, which will help keep products free from humidity, and three loading docks, which will greatly ease the unloading of containers.
The new office also offers plenty of room to work while keeping safe distances with 15 private offices for both current and new staff. Team growth has already begun with the addition of two new employees – a full-time warehouse assistant and a full-time IT manager – who’ve come on board within the last couple of weeks in preparation for the move. Bogati also plans to hire at least two more full-time employees, one for customer support and one for new customer sales.
Bogard LeBlanc is also working with a contractor to modernize the office space overall, as well as create two dedicated showrooms for its wholesale customers, one for funeral directors and one for pet crematories.
“The new and larger space is really going to allow us to better serve our customers and, in turn, the families they work with,” Bogard LeBlanc said. “We will have room to grow in both staff and product offerings. The Bogati team and I are ready to begin the next phase of the company’s growth.”
Founded in 2004 by Andrea Bogard LeBlanc, Bogati Urn Company offers funeral homes and crematories unparalleled service and wholesale pricing on an equally unparalleled variety of urns, scattering tubes and related products. Its original lead crystal line has expanded to feature a diverse and hand-selected product line from trusted manufacturers and skilled artisans worldwide. Its inventory now includes hundreds of memorial urns for adults, children and pets in varying materials, including glass, marble, wood, porcelain, brass and metal. Custom options are also available.
