Imperial Dade, a leading distributor of foodservice packaging and janitorial supplies, opened a new warehouse facility in Franklin, Massachusetts. The project is part of its latest move to optimize its geographic footprint across the country.
Company officials noted the more than 300,000 square foot warehouse is conveniently located at 300 Financial Park Drive in Franklin with direct access to the greater New England area. The new location will support its expanding customer base and continued growth in the Northeast.
"Moving into our 4th brand new state-of-the-art supersite in 5-years, we are excited to make another step in creating the region’s leading provider of foodservice packaging and janitorial supplies, along with fine paper and industrial packaging items. This further shows Imperial Dade’s commitment to the New England region in offering customers value added solutions and excellent service.” said Jack Boyajian, Senior Vice President of Imperial Dade’s New England Region.
Zach Plevritis, CIO and Mary Mozejko, Senior Vice President of Strategy and Facilities, noted, "Imperial Dade has created a warehousing formula that sets us apart in terms of reach and agility. As an essential business, we were able to build this warehouse entirely during the COVID-19 crisis, on time and on budget, working safely in partnership with local contractors. This warehouse will allow us to provide our customers with an extensive inventory to better support them as businesses begin to reopen."
