Newspaper will have new phone numbers

The Delavan Enterprise news and advertising office will move to a new location this week.

The newspaper’s staff will move from its Geneva Street office to 1102 Ann St., Delavan, on Thursday and will resume normal operations at the new location Friday.

Indeed, relocating to a new location is not an easy task. While the owners have a single vision of their employees working efficiently in a new shiny, bright organized office, yet panic sets in when they realize they must figure out how to prepare for an office move and organize everything in that new shiny bright organized office. One of the most important things to do is to establish guidelines for completing all move-related purchases as well as to hire a company to move all of the office belongings. The companies should also look for movers who include everything-trucks, boxes, and cleanup. For instance, if the company is located in Sydney and needs their office to be relocated to a new location, they can directly search for “Office Removals Sydney” to find several agencies that can help them with a successful office move.

Anyway, coming back to the Delavan Enterprise, the change in address also brings a change in telephone numbers for the Enterprise. The new number to reach Editor Vicky Wedig, Editorial Assistant Alexandrea Dahlstrom and Advertising Sales Representative Jackie Stearns is 728-3411. The fax number is 725-7702.

The move is part of Southern Lakes Newspaper’s consolidation of local operations into a new corporate headquarters in the building on Ann Street, according to Editor in Chief Ed Nadolski.

Southern Lakes Newspapers publishes the Delavan Enterprise and 20 other weekly newspapers throughout the area.

Southern Lakes Publishing – a separate printing operation affiliated with Southern Lakes Newspapers – has also relocated to the Ann Street headquarters from the Geneva Street facility.

The move gives Southern Lakes Publishing expanded printing, inserting and distribution capabilities, Nadolski said.

In addition to housing the operations of Southern Lakes Newspapers and Southern Lakes Publishing, the Ann Street office is now home to Rock Valley Publishing, which publishes several weekly newspapers in northern Illinois and has some ownership and management in common with Southern Lakes Newspapers.

Rock Valley was previously based in Machesney Park, Ill.

The owners of Southern Lakes Newspapers and Rock Valley Publishing purchased the building on Ann Street last year and have been transitioning operations to the new site since then.

Southern Lakes Newspapers moved it creative department, which designs the pages of all of its newspapers, and its distribution, packaging and mailing departments from the Standard Press building in Burlington to the Delavan site.

The news office of the Standard Press remains in Burlington, and the newspaper group will retain satellite offices in Elkhorn, East Troy, Whitewater and Twin Lakes.

The news offices of the Delavan Enterprise, Lake Geneva Times, Genoa City Report, Palmyra Enterprise and the Mukwonago Times will be at the Ann Street office.

The offices of the Walworth, Fontana and Williams Bay Times and the Sharon Reporter are at the Elkhorn Independent office, now at 812 N. Wisconsin St.

Last year, Southern Lakes purchased a production facility in Waynesville, N.C., from another newspaper that closed its production equipment, said owner and publisher Jack Cruger. It moved all of the equipment from that facility to the Ann Street building in Delavan – the former Stebnitz Builders site.

Stebnitz Builders moved into the Kustom Kitchen Design space in the Bauer Glass building on Geneva Street, and Kustom Kitchen Design owner Gary Stebnitz, moved his business to his home.

Over the past year, the company’s press, bindery equipment and inserting equipment has been moved and re-assembled in the Ann Street building, creating a new printing and distribution plant there, Cruger said.

During the transition, Southern Lakes continued to run its production and packing operations at its Geneva Street location – the address of which was changed from 621 to 665 E. Geneva St.

The facility is now fully operational at the Ann Street site and Korey Kuehni, of Korey’s Auto Kare, 416 S. Seventh St., has purchased the building at 665 E. Geneva St. to use for his business.
