The Certified Collectibles Group (CCG) continues its growth in Florida, expanding its Sarasota footprint. The company recently purchased a 21,000 sf facility and now has a total of 82,000 sf of real estate in the city.
CCG is the parent company of Certified Sports Guaranty (CSG), the sports card grading and authentication arm that has joined the company’s other offerings in the grading of collectibles.
Sarasota is the hub of CCG’s operations. The company employs more than 400 people globally with 330 of those staff members located in Sarasota.
The new facility will help accommodate the company’s growth as they continue to advertise open positions across their brands. In addition to hiring more workers, CCG says it is expanding its production and grading capability through “multi-million-dollar investments in cutting-edge technology, including AI, robotics, advanced software and more.”
The new building is in close proximity to the original CCG facility, situated only about a mile away. It will be equipped with storage vaults for collectibles as they await grading and hundreds of security cameras.
“CCG is laser-focused on providing best-in-class services to our customers as demand for our expertise increases,” said Steven R. Eichenbaum, CEO of CCG. “This new building reflects our continued commitment to our customers and the collectibles markets.”
CCG is comprised of eight companies that provide third-party authentication, grading and encapsulation services for coins, tokens, medals, paper money, comic books, trading cards, sports cards, magazines, concert posters, stamps and estate items. Since 1987, the CCG companies have certified more than 60 million collectibles with a combined fair market value of more than $30 billion.
