ViaWorks at Cigars International
Cigars International has hosted ViaWorks in their 80,000-square foot warehouse in South Bethlehem since September 2015. The Via team of 50 works side-by-side with Cigars International Employees to produce high quality work, and have become an integral part of the company’s business and workplace culture.
“Via has been an asset to the sampling department at Cigars International. Via’s workers improved and exceeded our product’s quality and our overall production. Each day, the Via team arrives ready to work, with a positive attitude; it’s clear that each worker is happy to be here. That attitude promotes positivity within the warehouse. Working side by side with the Via team improves the entire department’s morale and work environment. I cannot stress how important Via is to our department and to the warehouse as a whole.”
