EZ-FLO International announced it has expanded operations with the purchase of a new distribution center in Kinston, North Carolina. Shipping from the facility will begin Jan. 1.
“The investment in our new distribution center in North Carolina is important to our long-term growth strategy, as the facility will provide EZ-FLO the capacity we need to further our commitment to providing best-in-class service and delivery to support our strategic customers,” said Paul Wilson, president. “We are always looking for new ways to reach our customers as quickly and efficiently as possible, and the strategic placement of this distribution center will play a critical role in our fulfillment strategy.”
The 140,000 square-foot facility is located near shipping ports as well as major interstates (I-40 and I-95). EZ-FLO has also reduced the energy consumption of the facility by 50 percent, with the upgrade to motion-activated energy-efficient high visibility lighting systems. Along with the facility, 11 acres was acquired to accommodate future expansion.
