All Integrated Solutions (AIS), a division of MSC Industrial Supply Co., recently moved into a new distribution center in the Minneapolis-Saint Paul, Minnesota metro area.
The new facility covers 52,000 square feet and is 170 percent larger than the company’s previous distribution center in nearby New Brighton.
According to the company, the facility features a state-of-the-art warehouse system using narrow aisles, wire-guided material-handling equipment, and 32-foot ceilings to improve storage efficiency.
“In response to growing customer demand, we are pleased to move into a larger distribution center that can accommodate our warehouse, and kitting capacity needs to better serve assembly and manufacturing customers in the Greater Minneapolis/St. Paul metro area and beyond,” shared Nick Ruetz, president of AIS.
AIS, which was founded in 1962, is a value-added distributor of industrial production fasteners, components, and assembly tools. In addition to the new facility, AIS operate eight warehouses in Franksville, Wisconsin; Fargo, North Dakota; Cedar Rapids, Iowa; Grand Rapids, Michigan; Traverse City, Michigan; Connersville, Indiana; Atlanta, Georgia and Monterrey, Mexico.
In 2018, AIS was acquired by MSC as the platform for the company’s OEM fastener and components strategy. AIS is headquartered in Franksville, Wisconsin.
