Go Configure Invests $9 Million To Relocate to Pittsburg, Kansas
The company plans to relocate to the current DEPCO LLC facility in Pittsburg’s airport industrial park. It will begin transferring operations this summer with plans to be fully operational in the Pittsburg facility by October.
Go Configure was recently acquired by Backyard Leisure Holdings, which was founded and remains headquartered in Pittsburg. Backyard Leisure Holdings CEO Ron Scripsick said that adding Go Configure to the Backyard Leisure portfolio was an important part of the company’s growth strategy.
“Go Configure is a solid company with almost 20 years of experience providing the highest level of service in the delivery, assembly and repair field,” said Scripsick. “They were a good fit for us and we look forward to growing with them well into the future.”
The company’s clientele includes some of the world’s leading retailers, such as Sam’s Club, Dick’s Sporting Goods, Academy Sports and Outdoors, Toys “R” Us, Lowe’s and Backyard Discovery. Go Configure’s operation includes a call center, which fields nearly one million calls for service each year, and a fleet of installation specialists across the country.
“Pittsburg is fortunate to have some of the nation’s most successful companies in our community and we look forward to growing with them well into the future,” said Mayor Monica Murnan.
“It’s great that Backyard Leisure Holdings is expanding its operations in Pittsburg,” Kansas Commerce Secretary Pat George said. “Our state has been building a business environment that supports the growth of Kansas companies and encourages this sort of job creation and investment.”
