Hammond Power Solutions (HPS) has opened a new warehouse in Reno, Nev., to replace the existing warehouse in Compton, Calif.
“The investment in this new facility is part of a broader plan to evolve our operations and customer service”, stated Larry Bell, drector of supply chain, HPS. “Since the facility is within close proximity to major consumption centres on the West Coast, we expect lead times to be reduced to one-to-two days for stocked products in select regions.”
According to a company statement, the new warehouse will better accommodate HPS’ growing product sales and provide improved shipping lead-time in select regions. The Reno warehouse is triple the size of the Compton facility at 36,000 square feet, and it will house an expanded number of product SKUs.
Plant operations in Compton being unaffected, states HPS, and the new warehouse facility will be managed by personnel from Baraboo, Wis., “ensuring an orderly transition for our customers.”
