Victor Valley Marketing Group Feeds the High Desert Mavericks

Feed the Team

Adelanto, CA, June 13, 2011 — In order to give back to the community and support our local baseball heroes, the Victor Valley Marketing Group (VVMG.net) joined a new program to Feed the Team at Mavericks Stadium last Thursday. The members contributed chili, rolls, salad, and desserts to ensure the players got a home cooked meal. In the picture, Sam Pulice from Mojave Copy & Printing, Michael Doemner of Verizon Wireless with his wife, Caitlin of New Life Christian Academy and their son, Nathan, stand with first baseman Dennis Raben and right-fielder James Jones.

Furniture maker offers contracts to local businesses

United Furniture a boon for local vendors November 21, 2011 9:45 AM Tomoya Shimura Staff Writer VICTORVILLE • After being forced to medically retire from the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department, Kurt Vannaman started his own computer business in 2004. Sonic Systems in Apple Valley has grown since then, but the company still remains a family affair with just four employees, three of them Vannaman’s sons. So 45-year-old Vannaman was surprised when United Furniture Industries offered him a contract to install all the communication systems in its new 505,162-squarefoot warehouse at Southern California Logistics Airport. “It was huge for us,” Vannaman said. “I wasn’t expecting. I can’t really say I was confident about it.” Sonic Systems is one of more than a dozen local vendors UFI has used to launch its operations in Victorville, creating jobs in the area in addition to 70 workers it had planned to hire by the opening on Nov. 14. The Mississippi-based company will make and distribute upholstered furniture under brand names such as Simmons. Victorville’s ICR Staffing Services is helping UFI recruit local workers, and Hilton Garden Inn hosts UFI representatives when they fly to Victorville. UFI also works with Furniture Technologies in Adelanto and buys from Home Depot and Lowe’s stores in the Victor Valley. “As a corporate policy, we make a very sincere effort to purchase goods and services through local industry,” UFI spokesman Bob Cottam said. “It’s a policy that we’ve established a few years ago. We try to be a part of the community when we come into it.” Cottam said it’s also a matter of convenience to save time and money. Vannaman said someone recommended his company when UFI was shopping around. Sonic Systems met with UFI and submitted a bid like everyone else, he said. When Vannaman won the bid at the end of October, there wasn’t much time left as UFI wanted the installation to be done by the opening day. “It was a heck of a time crunch,” he said. “Logistically, just trying to get the material so that we could get to work was tough, but we did it.” UFI has hired 54 workers as of Thursday, short of the planned 70. Cottam said the company couldn’t find as much skilled labor as it had hoped. The company’s looking to hire additional workers with experience in upholstery.
