Johnstone Announces Grand Opening of New Texas Distribution Center

PORTLAND, Ore. — Johnstone Supply celebrated the Grand Opening of its new Texas Distribution Center facility with an open house and Texas-sized festivities on April 3, 2014. The official opening marks the latest achievement in the Cooperative’s ongoing capital investments in improved delivery times, accuracy and expanded region-specific products for customers.

Johnstone Supply strategically sited the new Southwest Distribution Center (DC) facility in Lancaster, Texas (south Dallas Metroplex area) in response to strong sales and demand in the region. It will serve customers across the south central United States. This newest DC is an integral part of the Cooperative’s regional distribution strategy and completes its recent DC system expansion effort.

“Our strategic DC expansion plan is based on continual improvement to our operations and our customer service – we are never satisfied with the status quo,” said DeWight Wallace, CEO of Johnstone. “It reinforces our determination to provide customers the best service and delivery times in the industry.”

The Texas Distribution Center (TDC) marks the 5th new Distribution Center in the last nine years for the national Johnstone network. It covers 156,000 sq-ft. and boasts a state-of-the-art warehouse layout and IT support system.
