Sales & Marketing

You will notice the Arete difference by the question asked by our sales department.

Our sales philosophy is based on a consultative approach. We strive to develop products and solutions that satisfy the customer’s desires and needs. Our order entry and customer service departments work alongside your sales consultant to ensure your order is processed accurately and timely.

Product Design, Prototyping & Development

Using CAD and Adobe Creative Suite products allows our design and development team to devise innovative products that are not only pleasing aesthetically, but also withstand the test of time.

When a new product is introduced we go through several different prototypes to ensure we get it right the first time.

Project Construction & Installation Management

Arete’s project and construction management team is involved with your project at the outset and works in conjunction with our sales consultants. We can recommend solutions that will save you time and effort during the permitting and engineering phases. Your installation, if required, is handled by our in-house team of installers.

Printing Design & Printing Operations

Our printing operation includes both offset and digital printing capabilities in addition to creative design. Whether your needs are large production runs or small variable data projects, we have you covered.

Production Operations

Our production operations are what separate Arete from other companies. Most of the production operations are completed in-house where we are able to closely monitor quality and production lead times. In the event there is an issue we can resolve the situation internally. Production departments include:

  • Metal Fabrication and Welding
  • CNC Operations
  • Furnishing Manufacturing and Assembly
  • Painting and Finishing Operations
  • Synthetic Materials Manufacturing
  • Sign Manufacturing
  • Packaging and Shipping

Administrative Management

Support functions are vital to any organization. Our procurement, accounting and human resource staff works across the organization to provide the services that keep the operation running smoothly.
