Logistics solutions firm Sonwil recently opened a distribution center and western hub on Longley Lane in Reno, Nevada.
The Nevada facility complements the company's existing operations in New York and New Jersey, where they cover 55% of the U.S. market and 65% of the Canadian market in one day's travel. The company has doubled its staff over the last four months, and with employees now totaling 10, Sonwil plans to continue their rate of workforce growth.
"As a business making our first introduction to the Nevada market, we couldn't be more excited. We are proud to maintain long-lasting trusted partnerships with some of the largest manufacturers in the world, in a number of verticals, and we look forward to doing the same in Reno," said Don Dimitroff, Chief Sales Officer of Sonwil Distribution Center.
"In addition to being a strategic location for our operations, Reno offers attractive freight rates, service levels, tax environment and business-friendly policies. Our focus will be two-pronged as we work to establish this facility as our Western USA operational hub - we will migrate existing clients to our Reno operation, in order to service their Western U.S. needs, and will proactively offer our services to companies operating, or planning to operate, in this region," he added.
"Sonwil brings with their expansion, great jobs and a name that is recognized and respected in the logistics world," said Mike Kazmierski, CEO of Economic Development Authority of Western Nevada. "Another significant investment and a great international company to add to our growing logistics presence in the Reno-Sparks area," he said.
