31 Jan Lane Valente Industries celebrates 15 Years at PRSM
Orlando, FL – January 31, 2014 — Lane Valente Industries, the nation’s leading provider of retail services, is looking back on the past 14 years at PRSM and how PRSM shaped the way we currently look at Retail Facility Maintenance.
This year’s show is being held from April 6 – 8 at the Rosen Shingle Creek Hotel & Conference Center in Orlando, FL and will feature some of the biggest names in Retail. Lane Valente will be located at PRSM Booth #400 and will be showcasing its Energy Reduction programs for retailers.
At PRSM – This year’s theme is Re:Think –
The retail industry is in a constant state of flux and growth, both of which impact how you approach facilities maintenance and your responsibilities as FM professionals. Attending this conference will update you on the trends and will provide the information you need to develop and expand cost efficient and productive processes, keeping your company ahead of the curve. It’s time to Re: Think.
“I can’t believe it’s been 15 years at PRSM” said Chris Lambert, SVP Global Sales & Marketing at Lane Valente Industries. “It’s a great time to reflect on all of the friends I have made (both retailers and vendors), some of the challenges of doing business in a weak economy and the changes we have seen in our industry throughout the last 15 years” “Of course I can’t forget the wisdom that I have now gained through the exposure, classes and guest speakers at this great conference”.
“The trends that I have seen in the retail industry throughout the past 15 years have been cyclical” said George Lane, President and CEO at Lane Valente Industries. “It started out with the complete outsourcing of facility maintenance to large service providers that had both labor and management resources, it then moved to the regional self-performers that were local and the preferred model for store chains, recently national brokers got all the attention when retailers had to cut back and shrink their workforce”. “I have seen a lot of changes through the years in retail. Right in the middle of all of the changes and trends – there was PRSM”.
