Memphis, Tenn.-based Orgill, Inc. plans to expand its distribution center in Kilgore, Texas. The company will almost double the size of the existing facility to nearly a million square feet.

According to Vic Price, VP of distribution for the southwest region, construction is expected to begin in the third quarter, with completion by June 2019.

“We’re pleased to be in a position to make another major enhancement of our distribution network,” says Ron Beal, Orgill chairman, president and CEO. “The growth we’ve experienced in Texas and the surrounding states has made the expansion a necessity. Kilgore’s strategic location and the quality of the work force in Gregg County and the surrounding area make this an ideal location for an expanded facility

“We’re definitely happy about the growth that necessitated this expansion,” Price said. “This is good news, both for Orgill and for our local community.”
