Canvas4Life.com Chief Marketing Officer Victor Lee admits that 50 jobs are not going to turn the nation’s unemployment rate around, but he described them as symbolic victory in a slumping economy.
The company, a global leader in custom canvas printing, recently announced it will add the new employees over the next two years. The positions will be in the fields of marketing, plant management and customer service.
Some of the jobs will be filled at the company’s facility in New Jersey, while others will be at a new production plant in Nevada.
“The culture here allows for a very open and collaborative management drive without any bureaucracy,” Lee said. “It’s really a privilege to be here in these early stages of growth. Canvas4Life will be a company to watch.”
