Last week, Orgill Inc. announced its Post Falls, Idaho, distribution center is now fully operational and has begun serving retailers in five states throughout the Northwestern U.S. as well its customers in Western Canada.
The distributor first announced the acquisition of the Post Falls distribution center in August 2016 and began retrofitting the facility immediately. The decision to acquire this newest facility was driven by Orgill’s desire to provide faster and more efficient service to its customers.
“We are very happy to announce that this facility is now up and running and represents a significant enhancement to our distribution network. We look forward to the efficiencies this new distribution center will offer our customers throughout the coverage area,” says Ron Beal, Orgill chairman, president and CEO.
Not only will this new facility offer more efficient deliveries to these customers, retailers will also be able to rely on a consistent delivery schedule and quality service from Orgill’s driving team and additional features like heated trailers to protect products from freezing.
“We will be using our own fleet of trucks and drivers to deliver the majority of shipments out of Post Falls,” says Randy Williams, Orgill’s general manager of distribution. “This is important because it means customers will be able to rely on regular shipments from a driver who is familiar with their business and runs on a consistent, reliable prescheduled delivery route.”
The Post Falls location will primarily service customers in five states throughout the region, including Montana, Idaho, Oregon, Washington and Alaska, as well as customers in Western Canada. Previously, customers within this area had been served out of other Orgill distribution facilities.
Founded in Memphis, Tennessee, in 1847, Orgill distributes hardware and home improvement products to customers in all 50 states, 10 Canadian provinces and over 50 countries throughout the world. The Post Falls facility is Orgill’s seventh distribution center; other sites are located in Tifton, Georgia; Inwood, West Virginia; Sikeston, Missouri; Hurricane, Utah; Kilgore, Texas; and London, Ontario.
