FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – 6.7.2018
MENOMONEE FALLS, WI – R.J. Schinner Co., Inc. (RJ Schinner), a premier re-distributor to the commercial wholesale trade, is excited to announce that a new location has been added to our growing coverage area. In addition, plans have been put in place to significantly increase five existing warehouse locations. The additional location and the planned expansions will bring the total square footage of the RJ Schinner distribution facilities to 1.5 million square feet.
Ken Schinner, President of RJ Schinner states: “Our continued expansion at RJ Schinner is made possible by the hard work and dedication of all of our employees. We look forward to working with our manufacturer partners in bringing our services to the Northeast market, and in doing so, bringing exciting new opportunities to the distributors in that area.”
The Bethlehem, Pennsylvania location is an 80,000 sq. ft. facility and will be fully operational in August of 2018. This newly built branch will service the entire Northeastern region of the United States on RJ Schinner owned trucks. It will be overseen by Gordon Eanes, current Executive Vice President of the SE Region, with expanded responsibilities in the Northeast Region.
In order to continue to service its distributor partners, RJ Schinner has also decided to expand warehouse space in five of its current locations. Menomonee Falls, WI will take on approximately 15,000 additional sq. ft., and Springfield, MO and Nashville, TN will each respectively add between 15-25,000 sq. ft. of additional warehouse space. The Englewood, CO location will be moving to a more centrally located and 18,000 sq. ft. larger location in Denver, CO. While the St. Louis, MO location will be moving to a 9,000 sq. ft. larger facility.
Mike Wentland, Vice President of Operations, stated about the additions, “We are excited to be either moving or taking on additional warehouse space for these locations. The continued growth we have experienced has been very encouraging and made this expansion plan a necessity. The increased size of these warehouses will provide us with efficiencies to keep costs down and at the same time maintain our service excellence for our customers.”
