In the last year, Colson Group unveiled its plan to enhance customer service and operational efficiency through the establishment of a new distribution center in Phoenix, Arizona. Fast forward to late November, and we’re thrilled to share the latest developments and progress on this facility. The new warehouse will serve as a central hub for streamlined storage, efficient distribution, and order fulfillment operations for western region customers.
Our brand-new 118,000 square feet facility in Phoenix officially took occupancy the week of November 22nd. The ongoing construction includes the installation of racking, with an anticipated completion date in December. The facility is actively building up stock and the first products are set to begin shipping out in Q1 of 2024.
Looking forward, we plan to roll out Colson products over the coming months, with ongoing discussions about which products will be housed in the facility. In Q2, we’re excited to be introducing 1000 SKUs available out of the Phoenix warehouse specifically tailored for our West Coast clientele. On-site operations are in full swing, with a dedicated team of five individuals currently managing the facility’s day-to-day activities. This committed team ensures the smooth receipt and preparation of shipments, laying the foundation for shipping operations expected to commence in Q1.
The strategic investment in our Phoenix warehouse aligns with our overarching philosophy of customer-centric innovation. By strategically locating this distribution center, we aim to expedite order fulfillment, minimize lead times, and elevate overall customer satisfaction. As we continue to be a pioneering force in the caster and wheel solutions industry, the Phoenix warehouse represents a significant milestone in our journey to provide unmatched service, operational excellence, and customer satisfaction.
