MEMPHIS -- Orgill, Inc., the world’s largest and fastest-growing independent hardlines distributor, will be expanding its network of world-class distribution facilities with the addition of a 780,000 square foot distribution centre in Rome, New York.
The new facility will be Orgill’s eighth full-service distribution centre, in addition to locations currently operating in Tifton, Georgia; Inwood, West Virginia; Sikeston, Missouri; Hurricane, Utah; Kilgore, Texas; Post Falls, Idaho; and London, Ontario.
“We are excited to announce this expansion to our distribution network and look forward to the enhanced efficiencies this will create for our customers as we move forward,” says Ron Beal, Orgill’s chairman and CEO.
The primary reason for the addition of the new Rome, NY, facility is to provide faster and more efficient service to Orgill’s growing customer base in the northeastern U.S. The new facility will service customers in seven states throughout the Northeast, including New York, Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine, Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Rhode Island.
These customers are currently served out of the Orgill distribution centre in West Virginia but the addition of the new facility will streamline the delivery process.
“As we continue to see our customer base expand, we are committed to making the investments that will deliver better, more efficient service to them both now and well into the future,” says Boyden Moore, president. “This announced distribution expansion is a perfect example of that commitment in action.”
Orgill plans for the facility to be fully operational by early 2022.
