After 51 years of success operating as a single location in Spokane, Washington, Empire Bolt & Screw announced the opening of a second warehouse distribution facility in Summerville, South Carolina.
“After receiving requests from various customers needing more localized inventory, we listened and started the process of setting up a distribution warehouse in South Carolina,” said president and CEO, Ron Stanley. “We are already seeing the advantages of having inventory closer to our customers due to the logical challenges of shipping freight across the country.”
Staffing is complete and Empire Bolt expects to have all of the necessary inventory in place to service existing customers within the next 30 days.
“Under the direction of our COO, Jennifer Sturm, our new service facility was established within four short months at a location 2,600 miles away from our Spokane headquarters,” added Stanley.
Empire Bolt & Screw is an international industrial distributor of threaded products and more, found in 1972 by Larry Stanley and his family. The company produces customized vendor-managed inventory (VMI) services for OEMs, focusing on made-to-print items.
