The F.W. Webb Company began construction of its planned one-million-square-foot Central Distribution facility in Londonderry, New Hampshire.
F.W. Webb Company provides products, services and expertise to residential, commercial, industrial, institutional, and municipal professionals. F.W. Webb carries extensive inventory of top-quality products for construction, renovation, maintenance, repair and operational needs. Plumbing, Heating, HVAC, Commercial Refrigeration, and PVF are among the company's 15 distinct disciplines. The facility will replace and be more than double the size of the company's current CD in Amherst, New Hampshire.
"Opening a much larger Central Distribution facility represents a major investment in our operations and a significant commitment to our customers and manufacturing partners," said Jeff Pope, President of the F.W. Webb Company. "This huge, state-of-the-art CD will allow us to offer our customers even more and better products, and reach further into the Northeast."
"The new F.W. Webb facility will help spur economic development in the region and boost New Hampshire's innovation economy," Governor Maggie Hassan said. "I am proud F.W. Webb has again chosen the Granite State, reinforcing that with our tax-friendly environment, highly skilled workforce, investments in improving our transportation infrastructure and high quality of life, New Hampshire is an attractive state for business."
According to company officials, the project should be completed by the end of 2017. F.W. Webb plans to retain and transfer all employees at the Amherst CD to the new facility. Additional employees will be hired as needs dictate as the new facility ramps up to full capacity.
