Crescent Electric Supply Co., based in East Dubuque, IL, broke ground this week on a new customer service and distribution center in Urbandale, Iowa. The building at 3501 111th St. will serve contractors, commercial, institutional and industrial customers throughout the greater Des Moines area. With 28,000 square feet as its starting point, this facility has the potential to expand to 130,000 sq ft as market conditions dictate, the company said in a release.
Marty Burbridge, Crescent president and CEO, welcomed approximately 60 attendees to the groundbreaking, including Iowa Lieutenant Governor Adam Gregg and Urbandale Mayor Bob Andeweg. Both spoke on Crescent’s commitment to Urbandale and the State of Iowa.
“Crescent Electric was founded in Dubuque (Iowa) in 1919 and we have served the Iowa construction market continuously for 99 years,” Burbridge said. “This new facility is the latest example of our commitment to Iowa, bringing our total number of branch locations in the state to 14.”
Crescent is partnering with Ryan Companies and Gronen Development on the project, which is expected to be completed in mid-December this year.
