Green Bay, Wis.-based lumber and building material distributor Amerhart opened a distribution facility in Traverse City, Mich., the company's first Michican distribution center and sixth overall.
The facility was previously a warehouse of North Pacific. From the new location, Amerhart will serve lumberyard and industrial accounts in Michigan's lower peninsula and eastern upper peninsula.
The company also announced the purchase of the hardware division from Jaeckle Wholesale. Amerhart now operates four DCs in Wisconsin, and one each in Illinois and Michigan.
