This week, Madison Electric Products opened a 35,000 square-foot distribution center in Rancho Cucamonga, Calif. Carrying Madison’s full product line, the facility will be the company’s first distribution center on the West Coast.
The addition of a California distribution center is a direct result of West Coast sales growth and is part of Madison’s ongoing commitment to enhance customer support. The distribution center will primarily serve customers in the western United States, reducing freight costs, shortening delivery times and increasing fill rate.
“This new distribution center is a testament to Madison’s growth and the additional demand for our innovative products on the West Coast,” said Brad Wiandt, president of Madison Electric Products. “The addition of this distribution center allows us to achieve higher fill rates and reduce backorders, continuing Madison’s customer-focused approach to the market.”
The new distribution center compliments Madison’s existing facility in Bedford Heights, Ohio and is part of a network that includes 16 independent manufacturer rep warehouses. Facility features include wire-guided order pickers, more than 1,800 active pick locations and more than 3,100 overstock locations. Madison will hold a grand opening at the facility on January 17.
Madison Electric was founded more than 80 years ago on Madison Avenue in Cleveland and still headquartered in northeast Ohio. The company also has offices in Phoenix, Arizona, and Shanghai, China.Tagged with tED
