Morse Industries opens new distribution center in Charlotte, N.C.
April 14, 2006 Business News(PRLEAP.COM) KENT, Wash., April 14, 2006 – As part of its continued growth and expansion, Morse Industries, a national supplier of custom and standard fittings and extrusions, has built and brought online a brand new distribution center in Charlotte, N.C. Designed to better service its East Coast and Southeast customers, the 35,000 square-foot facility is equipped with leading inventory control/sales management software and can provide sophisticated order fulfillment and delivery.
“We are very excited to be opening the doors to this new facility,” said Larry Morse, president. “Previously, we leased space in the area to service our regional customers. Now, with this custom-designed distribution center, we can increase our stockpile of products and have the luxury of efficiently staging even the biggest orders. It all adds up to better service, faster shipping and the space to continue our growth.”
This new distribution center system will provide customers with added convenience and more efficient tracking for their orders and shipment schedules, Morse noted. “We knew we needed a facility designed to handle our growth and provide the capacity to service bigger accounts.”
To head up operations at the new facility, Jeff Morse, co-owner and son of Morse Industries founder Leon Morse, will assume the role of distribution manager and supervise all operations at the Charlotte center.
“Jeff has served more than 20 years with the company in a variety of roles,” Larry noted. “He knows the business, he knows the territory and he understands our customers’ needs. With his leadership and our new capabilities, we expect to see our business growth continue on a fast track for the foreseeable future.”
