Shutterfly Expands East Coast Manufacturing Operations, Creating Additional Jobs In South Carolina

Shutterfly, Inc. (NASDAQ:SFLY), a leading Internet-based social expression and personal publishing service, today announced, subject to final state approvals, it will triple its East Coast manufacturing operations with a new state-of-the-art production facility in Fort Mill, South Carolina. Responding to significant business growth, this expansion will increase Shutterfly’s East Coast photo-product operations footprint to 300,000 total square feet. The new facility is scheduled to open in the second quarter of 2013 and the existing Charlotte, North Carolina, manufacturing space will be fully operational until that time. With the new facility located less than ten miles from the Company’s current location, Shutterfly expects to retain existing employees while creating new jobs during the next three years. This expansion builds on Shutterfly’s commitment to U.S.-based operations, as the Company maintains all manufacturing domestically.

“I am extremely proud that we are able to retain the employees working in our Charlotte facility while adding new jobs and expanding our manufacturing foot print,” said Jeffrey Housenbold, president and CEO of Shutterfly. “Fort Mill is an ideal location for its proximity to our employees and the new talented local labor pool.”

The 300,000 square foot facility in Fort Mill will house a portion of production and customer service personnel for Shutterfly’s four brands: Shutterfly, Tiny Prints, Wedding Paper Divas and Treat. While Shutterfly manufacturing is not new to the eastern U.S., the customer service center in Fort Mill will be the first East Coast customer service presence for Shutterfly. The move will bring new jobs to the U.S.

“We are committed to providing our customers the highest quality experiences and products to help them capture, preserve and share their precious memories,” said Housenbold. “Expanding our manufacturing facilities is critical to ensuring we are able to respond to increasing demand and deliver the best to our growing customer base.”
