CHATSWORTH, Calif. - K-Beech Video announced today that it has changed its business hours in an effort "to help employees and conserve energy" during the summer slowdown. Effective immediately, the company will be open Monday through Thursday from 7 a.m. - 6 p.m.

"With the rising cost of gas, electricity and other operating costs, as well as the summer months generally being the slowest months of the year in terms of sales, we decided to shorten the work week," a K-Beech spokesman said in a press release.

"This will not have any effect on our day to day operations," the spokesman continued. "We will continue to provide everyone with exceptional customer service in terms of sales, production and distribution, and look forward to continued growth and success with all of our employees and associates."

The new schedule will remain in effect until September 1st, 2007.
