Hardware Distribution Warehouses, Inc. (HDW) has announced its purchase of a 670,000-square-foot facility in Marshall, Texas, that will serve as the company’s new corporate headquarters.
The company will also consolidate its Houston and Shreveport, Louisiana, distribution centers in the new location, in addition to moving its headquarters. Marshall is located 22 miles west of the current HDW corporate offices in Shreveport.
The company plans to complete the move and begin shipments from Marshall by September.
HDW partnered with Fortna Associates, a nationally recognized business consulting firm, on the design and layout of the new facility in Marshall.
The new location will enhance the ability of HDW to deliver goods to more than 2,000 independent retailers in the mid-South by providing a centralized Texas location for western distribution, according to the company.
HDW’s Greenwood, Mississippi, distribution center will continue to provide services east of the Mississippi River.
HDW, Inc. is an employee-owned company that provides inventory and retail services to independent hardware stores and lumberyards in nine states.
The company added to its customer base by acquiring World and Main Houston in 2016. World and Main Houston was a Texas retail distribution business formerly known as Handy Hardware.
