In Ohio, Ace builds on distribution

BY HBSDealer Staff

Ace Hardware Corporation plans to expand its distribution center located in West Jefferson, Ohio.

Originally opened in 2014, the upcoming expansion of the West Jefferson RSC — or “Retail Support Center” — will add approximately 309,000 sq. ft. to the existing 534,000-sq.-ft. facility. Construction for the project is expected to begin in the third quarter of 2018 with a target completion in the first quarter of 2019.

“We look forward to breaking ground on the expansion of our West Jefferson Retail Support Center, an integral piece in Ace’s overall supply chain,” said Lori Bossmann, executive VP, chief supply chain officer at Ace Hardware. “Ace’s continued volume growth has driven our need for a larger facility to accommodate our growing business demands.”

The facility in West Jefferson serves Ace Hardware retail locations throughout Ohio, parts of Michigan, eastern Indiana, Kentucky, West Virginia and western Pennsylvania.

Ace runs a supply chain network that includes  14 company-owned RSCs in the United States and three non-Ace RSCs.
