Skechers Takes First Steps in Securing Flagship Distribution Facility with American Dynamics IP Surveillance Solution.

As one of the leading footwear companies in America, Skechers USA Inc.'s latest distribution facility in Rancho Belago, Calif., moves a mountain of shoes each day. This high-volume center is designated as a U.S. foreign trade zone, which requires specific and measurable security standards as set down by U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials.

Introduction
Skechers, an award-winning global lifestyle footwear company, develops and markets more than 3,000 styles for men, women and children through its fitness and lifestyle divisions. The company is known for its popular lines such as Shape-ups, Tone-ups, GOruns and Active, and celebrity spokespeople such as actress and Dancing With the Stars host Brooke Burke, fitness trainer Denise Austin, and former hockey player Wayne Gretzky. The $2 billion company was founded by Robert Greenberg in 1992.

Today, Skechers sells its products in more than 120 countries, ranging from Austria and Ireland to China, Thailand and Brazil. The company has opened more than 300 retail stores in key metropolitan areas worldwide, and partnered with distributors to open an additional 250 locations.

A significant portion of this worldwide product volume goes through Skechers newest distribution facility in California—a 1.8 million-square-foot, $250 million complex that serves as a U.S. foreign trade zone, one of 18 foreign trade zones in California. As defined by the government, a foreign trade zone is a designated location in the United States where companies can use special procedures that help encourage U.S. activity—in competition with foreign alternatives—by allowing delayed or reduced duty payments on foreign merchandise, as well as logistical and tax benefits.
