He frequently visited the production floor and asked questions about how things worked and would spend a few minutes pulling shirts out of the dryer and stacking them for boxing. After years of doing this, both his knowledge and interest in the business grew.
In early 2020, with COVID upon us, it was apparent that Steve (previous owner) was ready to pursue his life-long dream of retiring and traveling. As Steve recently completed his customized camper/van, he was eager to move on. Chris offered to buy the business, and Steve thought that was a great idea.
So on May 1, 2020, the ownership transferred to Chris, but nothing in the operation changed; the whole team of Artlab was still going strong. Darlene continued to run the front office, Matt continued to do artwork, and Kevin, Tom, and Dave continued to run the production operation.
After graciously staying a year to support the transition, Darlene and Matt opted to move on to other pastures, but we've replaced them with great new employees, Alexandra (front office operations) and Ashley (in art.) Kevin, Tom, and Dave continue to do the fantastic job back in production that they've done for years.
