As a result of the continued strong growth of our business, Power Distributors is pleased to announce the completion of construction and commencement of operations at our new velocity distribution center located in Ankeny Iowa, approximately 12 miles north of Des Moines.
Designed to handle today’s demands and tomorrow’s growth the newly constructed 145,000 square foot facility provides Power Distributors with a modern, high volume, high velocity distribution solution to serve and supply customers across the Midwestern United States.
The Ankeny facility offers a number of key benefits to Power Distributors and our customers. The location near a major central U.S. transportation corridor allows for fast, efficient and cost-effective door-to-door order fulfillment; the expansion in warehouse space translates to increased inventory depth, product availability and enhanced order fill rates; advanced processing and fulfillment automation moves orders from initiation to shipment with speed and accuracy; and the untapped warehouse capacity allows for continued expansion. In all the Ankeny distribution center was developed to ensure our ability to maintain exemplary service levels to customers across the Midwest now and long into the future.
With the expansion into Iowa, Power Distributors will consolidate the capacity and operations of the legacy warehouse facilities located in Anoka, Minnesota and Edwardsville, Kansas to the new facility. These efforts to optimize our distribution service footprint through investment, expansion and deeply considered consolidation are evidence of our promise to offer all customers the most cost-effective, efficient, and high value solutions with no sacrifice to service.
