Orgill Plans First DC in Northeast

Orgill will build its eighth full-service distribution center within the next 30 months in Rome, N.Y.

Orgill will build its eighth full-service distribution center within the next 30 months in Rome, N.Y.

The 780,000-sq. ft. facility is expected to be full operational by early 2022.
“We are excited to announce this expansion to our distribution network and look forward to the enhanced efficiencies this will create for our customers as we move forward,” said Ron Beal, Orgill’s chairman and CEO.

The primary reason for the addition of the new facility is to provide faster and more efficient service to Orgill’s growing customer base in the Northeast. The new facility will service customers in seven states throughout the Northeast, including New York, Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine, Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Rhode Island.
These customers are currently served out of the Orgill distribution center in West Virginia but the addition of the new facility will streamline the delivery process.

“As we continue to see our customer base expand, we are committed to making the investments that will deliver better, more efficient service to them both now and well into the future,” says Boyden Moore, president. “This announced distribution expansion is a perfect example of that commitment in action.”

Other DCs are in Tifton, Ga.; Inwood, W.V.; Sikeston, Mo.; Hurricane, Ut.; Kilgore, Tx.; Post Falls, Id.; and London, Ontario.
