WOLF settles into new Northeast DC
WOLF announced it will move its New England distribution hub from its current location in Worcester, Massachusetts, to a 100,000-sq.-ft. site in Northborough. The move to a larger distribution center will boost WOLF’s ability to serve kitchen and bath and building products to dealers in Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Vermont, Connecticut, Rhode Island, and upstate New York, the company said.
WOLF took full occupancy of the new site on Sept. 22 and will close its current facility, which the company has outgrown since it opened in January 2011.
The new facility offers 40,000 sq. ft. of additional interior storage space and features:
• 3.2 acres of outside storage (an increase of 2.2 acres);
• 23 dock doors (an increase of 13 doors);
• Improved delivery and logistics due to physical location, access to highways and operational environment; and
• A contractor product training center for WOLF PRO certification, and more.
In addition, WOLF will be stocking cultured marble vanity tops for faster delivery, and in early 2015, WOLF will be adding additional decking and railing offerings.
WOLF, which describes itself as is the largest supplier of kitchen and bath cabinets in the U.S. and a leading provider of building products in 33 states, will be hosting an Open House for contractors, business owners and vendors on Wednesday, Oct. 15, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
NFRC recognizes Joseph Hayden
The National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC) has honored Pella Corp.’s Joseph Hayden with a Dariush Arasteh Memorial Member of the Year award.
“I’ve said a lot of times that I don’t know of a harder working group of people than the folks at NFRC,” Hayden said. “It’s truly an honor to work with all of them and to receive this award.”
Hayden currently serves as senior engineer, technical leader-products for Pella.
He has been a member of the NFRC for 18 years, during which time he’s served on every committee and subcommittee within the organization, as chair of the NFRC board of directors, and many task groups.
"NFRC is fortunate to enjoy many dedicated volunteers and Joe still manages to stand out in the crowd," said Jeff Baker, NFRC board of directors chair. "Requests for feedback not only get quick responses, but responses are always thoughtful and thorough. It is no surprise that as soon as Joe was eligible he was recognized with this award sooner."
The NFRC chose from among 10 eligible candidates who were nominated for the honor.
