On Wednesday I got an email from Upper Deck’s Public Relations Manager informing me that the company was moving offices and would be without phone and Internet service for about a week.
Out of curiosity, I went to Google Maps to check out both addresses. The old Upper Deck headquarters appeared to be in a rather large office and warehouse space, while the new headquarters is in a much smaller building located just 2.5 miles away in another part of Carlsbad, CA.
Naturally, we don’t know how much of the original building Upper Deck was actually leasing.
The Upper Deck blog did acknowledge the move with a photo of vans outside the old Carlsbad corporate headquarters, and notes that there may be some customer service disruption over the next few days and everything gets set up in the new office.
The company also moved their Quality Assurance and Redemption teams to their printing facility in North Carolina earlier this year, which might account for the need to hold onto less space in California.
This map shows the short distance and large size difference between the two office buildings in Carlsbad:
