Malouf Selects Delano, California, for Warehouse Distribution Hub
According to company officials, the strategically located building adds 1.2 million square feet to the company’s distribution network and will allow the company to better serve its clientele in the Western United States.
Prior to the acquisition, the facility functioned as a distribution center for Sears.
With this new property, Malouf’s distribution centers total 5.3 million square feet, and the company can now offer next-day ground shipping to 35 percent of the continental United States.
Ryan Egbert, national director of distribution for Malouf, commented, “With an ever-evolving product mix and the addition of Salt Flat furniture, this new facility provides ample space for future growth and allows us to increase our outbound capacity for our customers.”
With the acquisition, Malouf also expects to create 100 local jobs within the next two years. Egbert explained, “We’re excited to be in an area with an excellent labor pool with a strong work ethic, and we look forward to welcoming them to our family.”
“Based on feedback from our retail partners, we know that efficient shipping and proper inventory levels are essential to their success,” said Malouf Vice President of Sales Mike Douglas. “As our company continues to grow, we will strengthen our capabilities to meet our customers’ needs.”
Malouf said it is currently preparing the building for operations and plans to start shipping product out of the facility later this year. The company will transition the majority of its West Coast distribution to California.
