CLOVIS, CA-–Pelco is opening two new warehouse facilities, one in Shanghai, China, and the other in Louisville, Kentucky. Another example of the Pelco dedication to customer service, these facilities enable the company to better service its customers with shorter ship and lead times as well as more cost-efficient shipping for the majority of customers.
"We want to make it easier to do business with us, and these facilities were designed and planned with our customer's requirements in mind," says Tony Stallings, Pelco vice president of global supply chain logistics. "Opening these facilities is a natural step for us."
The China, Shanghai Distribution Center opened August 25, 2008. Pelco product will be warehoused in and shipped from an existing Schneider Electric China Investment (SECI) facility. After extensive analysis, teaming with the Schneider facility was the most operationally beneficial and cost-effective means to allow Pelco to better serve the growing China market.
The Louisville Distribution Center in Kentucky opened July 1, 2008. Utilizing 15,000 square feet of warehouse space on the UPS Distribution Campus adjacent to UPS' Worldport air hub, Pelco customers will be serviced by this strategically placed location. This one facility will ship to the Eastern U.S. and Canada.
