New Products for GOLDEN in 2014

2014 is already proving to be an exciting year at Golden Artist Colors! There is a tremendous amount of activity at the factory, as staff gear up for new product launches not only for GOLDEN, but Williamsburg as well. Stay tuned for additional details in the coming weeks!

New GOLDEN Distribution Center

Commencing on March 10th, 2014 Golden Artist Colors, Inc. will be operating a new distribution center in support of their trading partners. This new facility is located approximately 20 miles from their current operational base and the expectation is, that over time, improved serviceability will be achieved via new technologies, case pack orientations, and more reliable transportation capabilities.

To support the opening of this facility on time, GOLDEN will NOT ship any orders from March 3rd – March 7th. This time period will be required to execute the movement of all inventory stocks to the new location.

Please consider this interruption in service as you plan your order fulfillment. MacPherson’s customers, who occasionally purchase direct through GOLDEN, may want to purchase through MacPherson’s during that week. For questions, contact GOLDEN Sales Director Bill Hartman at 800-959-6543.
