YORK– Nations Photo Lab/Artsy Couture, an affiliate of Gallery Blocks LLC, a leading professional full-service photography printing lab formerly headquartered in Cockeysville, Maryland, has relocated its headquarters to Springettsbury Township, York County.
The relocation will create 125 new, full-time jobs in the Susquehanna Valley.
The full-service photography lab specializes in printing innovative products such as professional quality photo prints, museum-quality canvas prints, bright metal prints, rustic wood products, archival photo albums, photo books and more.
As part of Artsy Couture’s relocation and expansion efforts, the company has purchased an existing 73,850-square-foot building in Springettsbury Township.
The relocation includes the purchase of the building, renovations, new equipment, furniture, and job training costs. The company has committed to investing $5.6 million into the project.
“Our new, larger manufacturing space in York County will allow us to bring our teams together to increase efficiency, encourage collaboration and support the future growth of our business,” said Artsy Couture President Harvis Kramer. “This site will offer great flexibility in our future growth across the U.S.”
Nations Photo Lab received a funding proposal from the Department of Community and Economic Development for the project.
The proposal includes a $50,000 Pennsylvania First grant, $125,000 in Job Creation Tax Credits to be distributed upon creating the new jobs, and a $52,800 workforce training grant. The company has also been encouraged by DCED to apply for a $2 million loan through the Pennsylvania Industrial Development Authority.
“On behalf of YCEA, I am delighted to welcome Artsy Couture to York County,” said Kevin Schreiber, president & CEO of the York County Economic Alliance. “Our team was pleased to support the site search process and coordinate efforts with the Governor’s Action Team.”
Artsy Couture is part of a family of brands under the Millman Multimedia umbrella. Its first company was founded in 1999 by CEO Ryan Millman.
