Orgill Inc. has announced that the company will be expanding its distribution center in Kilgore, Texas.
The company will nearly double the size of the existing facility to nearly 1 million square feet.
“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 workforce in Gregg County and the surrounding area make this an ideal location for an expanded facility.”
Construction is expected to begin in the third quarter of 2018, with completion by June 2019, according to Vic Price, vice president of distribution for the southwest region.
“We’re definitely happy about the growth that necessitated this expansion,” Price says. “This is good news, both for Orgill and for our local community.”
Founded in Memphis, Tennessee, Orgill distributes home improvement products to retailers in all 50 states, 10 Canadian provinces and more than 50 countries throughout the world. The company operates distribution facilities in Post Falls, Idaho; Tifton, Georgia; Inwood, West Virginia; Sikeston, Missouri; Hurricane, Utah; Kilgore, Texas; and London, Ontario.
