Hillman Solutions Corp., a leading provider of hardware products and merchandising solutions, opened a brand new distribution center in Belton, Missouri. Relocating from Rialto, California, Hillman’s new facility is approximately 305,000 square feet.
“As 85% of the U.S. population can be reached in one to two business days from it, the central location of the new distribution hub will allow us to better serve our customers,” says Doug Cahill, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Hillman.
The Kansas City region offers abundant access to rail, air, water and road transportation, with 30% more interstate miles per capita than any other U.S. city and an industrial market footprint of nearly 321 million square feet. Cahill says the Kansas City facility will be optimal for logistics, allowing the Hillman distribution hub to get products on the shelves of the more than 40,000 retail locations Hillman ships to faster than ever.
“Taking care of the customer is in our DNA, and this move will help us do just that,” he says.
