Jones Stephens, a Hardware Holdings company, expanded its distribution capabilities to the West Coast through its new Valencia, California, distribution center.
The facility, which supports 5,000 of the most-frequently ordered Jones Stephens plumbing and MRO products, has been fulfilling orders since May. The investment is part of a new Jones Stephens "We Got It... West Coast" initiative.
"The addition of our Valencia distribution center allows us to better meet the needs of all our customers -- especially our regional partners west of the Rockies -- in a timely and cost-effective manner," said Michele Hudec, VP and GM of the Commercial and Industrial Division of Hardware Holdings. "It's all part of our value proposition -- to minimize our customers' stock-outs and maximize their inventory efficiency. We want our regional partners to look to Jones Stephens as a national specialty plumbing and MRO products company offering the convenience and service level of a local supplier."
The new DC is located at 28624 Witherspoon Parkway. The company says its strategic location provides faster, more cost-effective replenishment of core products to customers in Washington, Oregon, California, Idaho, Nevada, Montana, Wyoming, Utah, Arizona, New Mexico, Hawaii and Alaska.
The Jones Stephens national distribution system also includes DCs in Moody, Alabama and Pottsville, Pennsylvania.
