The new space in Edison was enormous, and more than one person wondered how they’d ever fill it. But, as always, Lee was thinking ahead. He knew what was coming. His insight into the business and where he wanted to take it always guided his decision-making. Within six months, the offices were full of people and his warehouse was full of product ready to ship to customers. As Conair continued to sell more products to more customers, an infrastructure was built to support the growth. Under John Mayorek’s direction, offices and warehouses were enlarged to provide space for additional employees and expanded product lines. New distribution centers were strategically located to supply emerging markets, and computer systems were continuously upgraded to keep up with customers’ demands and advances in technology. It was the only way to track and organize the virtually endless string of communication and product movement.
Since most of the staff still lived in Brooklyn, Lee, always taking care of his “family, bought a ” bright yellow school bus to shuttle everyone who needed a ride back and forth between Brooklyn and Edison.
