BERKELEY, Calif., (May 25, 2011)Haiku by Sharon Eisenhauer, Inc., creator of poetically functional accessories for women, announced today the relocation of its offices to Berkeley, Calif. and the decision to outsource its distribution facility to Planet Access Company near Chicago, Ill. These changes come as part of the company’s continued growth trajectory and will take place in June 2011.

Haiku’s decision to outsource its order fulfillment to Planet Access Company is key to the company’s plan for growth. Planet Access Company’s warehouse staff is highly seasoned, with 50+ years of experience in the third party logistics industry. Haiku and Planet Access share common social messages of giving to create stronger business practices. The partnership will give Haiku the ability to provide customers with a higher level of service and better overall experience.

“This is a big step for Haiku, and we are excited to partner with Planet Access Company to continue to provide our customers with exceptional service,” said Sharon Eisenhauer, owner and designer of Haiku. “We chose Planet Access in part due to excellent referrals, but also because of their training of developmentally disabled people in order to get them back in the work force.”

Since Haiku no longer needs space for its warehouse in Oakland, Eisenhauer is relocating the Haiku offices in California to a Gold-certified LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) building in North Berkeley. Haiku’s move into a LEED Certified building is in line with the company’s mission of building a business with integrity, and reflects another step towards making a positive change in the community.

The new office space in Berkeley will be christened on, June 28, 2011, when Haiku hosts the Outdoor Industries Women’s Coalition (OIWC) Bay Area Network Night.

“We’re very pleased to be moving into a space that really aligns with Haiku’s vision,” said Eisenhauer. “We’re confident that the new changes are moving us in the direction of achieving our mission and goals for the company.”

The current changes in location and operations signify milestones in Haiku’s efforts to make a difference in our world. For more information about Haiku, please visit http://www.haikubags.com/about.php.
