Westcrowns Inc., of Ocean Isle Beach, N. C., has announced that
it will open a new regional distribution center in the U.S. to
offer better pricing and availability of its Pilkington Profilit
window. The first of several regional distribution centers will
open in the southwest in Tucson, Ariz., and will service Arizona,
southern California, southern Nevada and New Mexico.
According to company information, the regional distribution centers
will offer customers lower costs by warehousing Profilit inventory
to eliminate international freight expenses and provide faster
delivery for compacted construction schedules. The new distribution
center will also offer customers value-added services including
cutting, fabricating, laminating and tempering.
"With the opening of Westcrowns Southwest and future regional
distribution centers, we are looking to expand our market, respond
to customer requests and offer more options to our current national
distribution network," said Geoffrey Card, president of Westcrowns.
