Southern Pipe & Supply, a leading distributor of plumbing, air-conditioning, waterworks, and industrial products in the southwest, has announced the acquisition of a state of the art, five hundred thousand square foot distribution center in Meridian, Mississippi.
The property, featuring fifty-seven dock doors with thirty-two feet of ceiling clearance, is strategically located at the intersection of interstate 20 and interstate 59 in the center of Southern Pipe & Supply’s geography. The distribution center will allow Southern Pipe & Supply to effectively service its 124 locations in seven southeastern states.
Built in 1990, Southern Pipe & Supply’s original Central Distribution Center (CDC) featured seventy thousand square feet. Over the next two decades the company has continued to expand their CDC, resulting in a total warehouse space of three hundred and twenty-five thousand square feet.
Southern Pipe’s unprecedented growth during the last few years has led to a rapid need to increase the size of its Central Distribution Center. According to the American Supply Association, since 2019 Southern Pipe & Supply has been the fastest growing industry distributor in the country.
The new facility sits on approximately fifty acres of land. This will provide flexibility for Southern Pipe & Supply to expand in the future. Southern Pipe & Supply is also making a significant investment into modernized racking systems and equipment to improve efficiency and productivity at their new CDC.
“The purchase of this new facility is due to the remarkable Southern Pipe family members (employees) who make a difference every day. Southern Pipe is fortunate to have the most extraordinary team serving the best customers in the industry. I am blessed to be able to celebrate this milestone with them," said Southern Pipe President Jay Davidson.
