BendPak D/C Will Serve Customers in Eastern U.S.

Posted on March 24, 2020

BendPak is opening a new, 100,000-square-foot distribution center near Mobile, Ala., to better serve customers in the eastern United States.

The administrative and shipping complex, which is expected to be fully operational within 60 days, is located in Theodore, just a short drive from the expanding Port of Mobile.

“The new facility has easy access to three major interstates and five Class I railroads, helping BendPak to deliver products same-day or next-day to more customers in the eastern half of the country,” say company officials.

“Opening the Mobile distribution center represents our continued commitment to being the industry leader and best at serving our customers. Part of that commitment means reducing delivery times,” says Don Henthorn, BendPak president and founder. “This new facility brings our products geographically closer to our customers and that makes a huge difference.”

The new warehouse will stock all of BendPak’s popular products, including its Ranger, QuickJack and Autostacker brands. A future training facility will include a classroom and fully appointed service bay to offer customers a convenient option for quality technical training on BendPak’s expanding product lines.

“This new distribution center will enhance our ability to get our customers what they need, when they need it,” says Jeff Kritzer, BendPak executive vice president. “Today’s consumer expects immediate delivery, and we’re focused on helping that become a reality.”

The facility will offer next-day or two-day delivery to a large share of BendPak’s customer base on the East Coast.

BendPak’s headquarters and distribution multiplex in Santa Paula, Calif., will continue offering shipping and order fulfilment services to approximately 15 western states.

BendPak plans to continue its expansion efforts in order to improve geographic shipping advantages.
