Company Spotlight: Shutterfly
Shutterfly began in Redwood City, California in 1999 with a goal to make the right tools for storing digital photos and turning them into physical products with meaning. They quickly found success and went on to become one of the leading resources of photo sharing and printing in the world. In 2012, they came to Fort Mill, South Carolina where they opened a 300,000-square-foot customer service, production and distribution facility.
“The Shutterfly brand brings photos to life in photo books, gifts, home décor, and cards and stationery. Lifetouch is the national leader in school photography, built on the enduring tradition of “Picture Day,” and also serves families through portrait studios and other partnerships. Shutterfly Business Solutions delivers digital printing services that enable efficient and effective customer engagement through personalized communications. Together, we are Shutterfly, Inc.”
Shutterfly’s Fort Mill facility is the largest in the company and the center of their East Coast manufacturing and customer care operations. They employ over 600 people and add 1,500 seasonal jobs during the 4th quarter when production of photo gifts and cards widens for the holidays. The team at the Fort Mill facility is made up of production and customer service personnel spanning Shutterfly’s stable of brands: Shutterfly, Tiny Prints, Wedding Paper Divas and Treat.
“It is not just manufacturing a part to a car or a widget. We’re making a memory for our customers. It is something that they cherish and our employees enjoy making those products for them.”
-Dave Bull, Vice President of Manufacturing, Fort Mill Facility
