Grainger Opens Bordentown Township, New Jersey, Distribution Hub

12/03/2017
Grainger, the leading broad line supplier of maintenance, repair and operating products serving businesses and institutions, opened its new 1.3 million-square-foot distribution center in Bordentown Township, New Jersey.

The facility stocks more than 300,000 items and allows the company to deliver more products by the next day to customers in the Northeast.

"Our Northeast Distribution Center in New Jersey is a significant investment focused on helping to ensure an effortless experience for our customers by getting them the products they need to keep their operations running and their people safe, and making those products available faster than the competition," said Barry Greenhouse, Grainger Vice President, Global Supply Chain. "Grainger has been in New Jersey since 1933, and we look forward to continuing to provide exceptional value to businesses in the Northeast."

According to company officials, the distribution center runs on state-of-the-art distribution technology enabling real-time order processing. The building also features more than 13,000 high-efficiency SunPower solar panels on its roof capable of producing 4.3 megawatts of electrical power.

"Bordentown Township, 'The Crossroads of the Heart of New Jersey', is delighted to officially welcome the single largest independent commercial warehouse in the State," said Stephen Benowitz, Mayor of Bordentown Township. "I have been involved in this project with Grainger, a Fortune 500 company, since the beginning, so this event carries special importance to me. I would like to especially point out that Grainger has proven to be, as promised, a good neighbor and community partner to the residents that surround their property. On behalf of the Township Committee, we look forward to a long, successful relationship,” the Mayor said.

This project is the end result of a mutually beneficial process between government, the private industry, and the community. I truly believe that this project will be the beginning of more growth and prosperity for the Township," he said.

This Northeast Distribution Center is one of 20 such centers Grainger has throughout North America, dedicated to the products customers need to maintain, repair and operate facilities.
