Specialty Pharmaceutical Distributor, BDI Pharma, Inc. is in the final stages of construction and licensing for its new Irving, Texas
, distribution center. The firm’s second national distribution center is slated to begin operation as early as October to support its ongoing expansion project.
According to company officials, as part of its strategic plan, this facility is designed with optimized distribution capabilities primarily focusing on transportation efficiencies and maintaining business continuity in case of natural disaster. Its newly designed distribution facility more than doubles BDI's warehousing capacity and allows for expansion to triple that capacity.
"We expect roughly 40 percent of our shipments to be made from the Irving location, while 60 percent would continue coming from our corporate headquarters
in Columbia, South Carolina", stated Corwin Jackson, Vice President of Project Management for BDI Pharma. The company will also have space available in Irving dedicated for future sales staff expansion. "Irving will be the second new facility brought on-line by the company during 2014 and further exhibits the steadfast commitment from ownership to continue investing in the rapid growth of BDI Pharma for the coming years" added Anthony Jackson, the company's Chief Operating Officer.
With a close proximity to DFW Airport, the new facility provides BDI Pharma the service required to continue offering customers efficient delivery capabilities
such as routine Monday deliveries, company officials said. While the company still offers a true 24/7 service, the new facility also helps to expand the normal hours of operation. BDI plans to hire locally to fill the last remaining jobs and is proud to have employed multiple vendors for this project, all from the Dallas-Fort Worth area and surrounding communities
