|SportsDirect Inc. announced the expansion of the company to include an office in Las Vegas, Nevada and construction of a bigger office at its Halifax, Nova Scotia headquarters today. The moves come in response to provide space for a staff that doubled in two years to pass the 100-employee mark. The new office space adds almost 23,000 square feet to the existing structure at 77 Chain Lake Drive in Halifax.|
'The level of growth is something all of us have worked hard to achieve,' said Paul Lavers, founder and CEO of SportsDirect Inc. 'The new addition to our Halifax location will allow for our constantly increasing numbers to achieve even greater success in the future.'
The new office in Las Vegas will house employees for Covers Media Group (CMG), a subsidiary company of SportsDirect Inc. that handles existing e-commerce and European facing properties such as Covers.co.uk and CoversExperts.com. It joins the other CMG office based in Galway, Ireland.
