Madison Electric, Bedford Heights, Ohio, opened a 35,000-square-foot distribution center in Rancho Cucamonga, Calif. Carrying Madison’s full product line, the facility will be the company’s first distribution center on the West Coast. The new distribution center complements Madison’s existing facility in Bedford Heights, Ohio, and is part of a network that includes 16 independent manufacturers’ rep warehouses. Facility features include wire-guided order pickers, more than 1,800 active pick locations, and more than 3,100 overstock locations. Madison will hold a grand opening at the facility on Jan. 17.
“This new distribution center is a testament to Madison’s growth and the additional demand for our innovative products on the west coast,” said Brad Wiandt, president of Madison Electric Products, said in a press release. “The addition of this distribution center allows us to achieve higher fill rates and reduce backorders, continuing Madison’s customer-focused approach to the market.”
