LEWIS CENTER, Ohio—For the second year in a row Air Waves LLC is in the news for selling off one of its divisions. The company recently sold its heat transfer division to F&M Expressions. Last year, it sold off its digital transfer paper division to Joto Paper Inc. The moves, according to chief operating officer Michael Leaventon, were made so the company could focus more on its core business: on-demand garment printing and order fulfillment. “It’s to focus more on our e-commerce fulfillment business,” Leaventon says of shedding those two divisions. “Ordering garments online (from whatever source) – that’s not going away. And we just found that we were in a lot of different businesses.” The company’s e-commerce fulfillment business is growing to the point where this fall, it is relocating to another facility in Lewis Center that is more than double the size of its current location. The company says the extra space is needed to add capacity and maintain its fast turnaround time. Air Waves handles direct-to-garment, screen printing and sublimation for a variety of garment websites, retailers, and major online marketplaces. “So if you go online on their website and you order a T-shirt, they’re just running the store, we’re running the warehouse and production. We send it to their customer,” Leaventon
