Hillman Solutions Establishes Belton, Missouri, Distribution Hub

Hillman Solutions Corp., a leading North American provider of complete hardware solutions, invested $3 million in a new distribution hub in Belton, Missouri.

The 305,000-square-foot facility, relocated from California, will allow for faster delivery of products to more than 60,000 retail locations.

“As 85 percent of the U.S. population can be reached in one to two business days, the central location of the new distribution hub will allow us to service our customers much more efficiently,” said Doug Cahill, Chairman, President and CEO at Hillman.

For this expansion, Hillman will benefit from the Missouri Works program, a tool that helps companies expand and retain workers by providing access to capital through withholdings or tax credits for job creation.

“Hillman’s decision to open a new distribution hub here in Missouri strategically positions them within 600 miles of 135+ million potential customers, helping them reach even more customers quickly and efficiently,” noted Subash Alias, CEO of Missouri Partnership. “We are excited to welcome Hillman to Missouri, and we are looking forward to watching them grow in our state.”

Cincinnati, Ohio-based Hillman is a leading North American provider of complete hardware solutions. The company designs innovative product and merchandising solutions for complex categories that deliver an outstanding customer experience to home improvement centers, mass merchants, national and regional hardware stores, pet supply stores, and OEM & Industrial customers.

“Hillman’s selection of Belton, Missouri, for its new facility reinforces our region as a hub for distribution,” added Chris Gutierrez, President of KC SmartPort. “The Kansas City region’s central location, multi-modal transportation, skilled workforce and vertical readiness help position leading companies like Hillman for continued growth.”
