Cardone Will Build Distribution Center in Texas

Posted on December 4, 2017

Cardone Industries Inc. will begin building a $50 million distribution center in Harlingen, Texas, near the company’s current core processing facilities, in January 2018.

Completion of the 920,000-square-foot facility is set for December 2018. The distribution center will begin operations in the summer of 2018 in half of the building while construction continues on the other half.

The company says the new distribution center is intended to support growing production at its manufacturing facilities. The building will be constructed with the capacity for future expansion.

Cardone expects the new distribution center to create hundreds of new jobs in the Harlingen area.

“As Cardone continues to grow, we need to augment our distribution and logistics capabilities, in order to handle our increasing volume and the growing number of product lines.” says CEO Stan Gowisnock.

“Also, having this new distribution center in close proximity to our South manufacturing facilities will help us get those products in our customers’ hands quicker than ever before.”

Cardone added operations in Vancouver, Phoenix, Seattle, Toronto, Spain and China through its recent acquisition of ADP Distributors and Rotomaster on November 20, 2017. The company also has facilities in Philadelphia, Texas, Los Angeles, Canada and Mexico,

Gowisnock says: “As we continue to strategically expand our business, having robust production and distribution facilities across the country will provide us with outstanding flexibility for product fulfillment and improve our overall efficiency.”
