Do it Best reports it has broken ground on a major expansion of its Woodburn, Oregon distribution center to support member growth along the West Coast.

The multi-year project will grow the space by about 50% and will dramatically increase the company’s efficiency and responsiveness, said the firm.

“Driving growth is central to our success,” said Dan Starr, president and CEO of Do it Best. “Together, we’ve been achieving that by selling more of the right products to our member-owners, helping them sell more of those products to their customers, and welcoming even more members to the Do it Best family.

“All of these initiatives have led to record sales and new member growth over the last several years,” said Starr.

To sustain that level of growth, Do it Best said it has committed $100 million in infrastructure investments to support its members’ needs. That includes a next-gen warehouse management system, a new distributed order management system, and a streamlined core financials package.

“We’re building out our capacity within our warehouse network, beginning with our Woodburn distribution center. Warehousing technology has continually advanced, and we’ve partnered with industry leaders to further enhance our operational excellence,” said Tim Miller, vice president of logistics.

As part of the project, Do it Best said it is also increasing work and office space for its teams in both the warehouse and regional lumber office as the company gears up for additional growth in hardlines and lumber and building materials.

“We’re committed to building and maintaining the facilities, equipment, and systems necessary to support all our members’ growth,” said the VP of logistics.

“The Woodburn expansion is only one example of the investments we have underway to ensure we’re meeting their needs now and into the future,” said Miller.
