Winsupply Inc., one of the nation’s largest distributors of construction and industrial supplies and equipment, celebrated the grand opening of its newest regional distribution center, a 272,000-square-foot center in Jacksonville, Florida.
Winsupply Support Services Group President John McKenzie said the distribution center is Winsupply’s fifth major regional distribution center (RDC) joining Winsupply RDCs in Dayton, Ohio; Denver; Middletown, Connecticut; and Richmond, Virginia.
“We couldn’t be more pleased with the distribution facility, its design and construction management by Pattillo Industrial Real Estate,” McKenzie said. “This is such an important region for Winsupply and speed to market is essential to meeting our customers’ expectations. The new distribution center means shorter delivery times to our local companies in Florida, Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi and South Carolina.”
Pattillo Industrial Real Estate developed Westside Industrial Park. The distribution center sits on 22.3 acres at 6282 Imeson Road.
“The success of Winsupply is easy to understand after working with the Winsupply team in designing and building the new Jacksonville distribution center," said Pattillo Industrial Real Estate Senior Vice President Peter Anderson. "The team, led by Bill Tolliver, Jeff Porter and Greg Shelby, effectively communicated Winsupply’s needs and remained thoroughly engaged from building design through final construction. Pattillo Industrial Real Estate has more than 65 years of experience in providing facilities for international leaders in manufacturing and distribution, and Winsupply is second to none in the execution and professionalism of its people. We thank Winsupply for the opportunity to partner with them on the Jacksonville project.”
