WinWholesale’s Dayton Regional Distribution Center, one of the company’s four major distribution centers (Denver; Richmond, Virginia; and Middletown, Connecticut) is adding more than 15,000 square feet of usable space within the existing building footprint.
The center is adding a mezzanine level inside the building. A “piece pick” area will remain on the main floor for the fastest moving items. Piece pick items are typically stored in racks that will be in place on both levels. By moving and storing certain items on the mezzanine level, more space will open on the main floor for bulk items that are fast-moving and/or stocked in multiple pallets.
“This expansion work is driven by the ongoing growth of WinWholesale through organic growth, new companies opened and acquisitions. Additionally, Win Sourcing Services is constantly increasing our stock portfolio on hand in the regional distribution centers. By having more product lines and items ready to ship, we provide our companies direct access to the products and brands they need, which is essential for delivering on our brand promise of having the right product at the right time,” said Rick McCann, vice president, Supply Chain, WinWholesale.
The total value of the project is an estimated $800,000. It also includes both an internal and external revamp to the building. Work is expected to be completed in October.
The 200,000 sq ft. building has been in operation since being built by WinWholesale in January 2006. The company’s centers support more than 570 Win Group of Companies.
