Newport News, Virginia-based plumbing distributor Ferguson is building a new distribution center in Coxsackie, New York. The company has also leased property for a regional distribution hub in Secaucus, New Jersey.
The two facilities will house almost 1 million sq. ft. of warehouse space and will support Ferguson’s metro New York and Northeast branches, ensuring that customers receive product quickly.
Ferguson is the largest wholesale plumbing distributor in the United States.
In New York, groundbreaking is scheduled for mid-August with a proposed completion date of late summer 2015. The New Jersey shipping hub is expected to open in the first quarter of 2015.
“Our acquisitions and the addition of these two facilities secure Ferguson’s presence in the Northeast,” said Ferguson CEO Frank Roach. “Our investment in the region is based on our philosophy to always strive to better serve our customers.”
In recent months, Ferguson has increased its investment in the Northeast. The company made several acquisitions in New York and New Jersey, including The Davidson Group, Davis & Warshow and Karl’s Appliance, complementing its more than 100 already existing Ferguson locations in the region.
