ProVia Opens New Distribution CenterJanuary 18th, 2013 by DWM Magazine
The distribution center is the first phase of an 112,000 square foot building expansion that began in 2012.
This expansion is part of ProVia’s master facility plan to support long-term growth. Work is underway to expand its entry door manufacturing capacities in 58,000 square feet of the building expansion. ProVia doors and windows are currently being staged at the distribution center with plans to eventually cross-dock all ProVia products there. Solar energy panels are being used at this and two other production facilities as part of the company’s effort to lower energy costs.
The new distribution center is equipped with 16 loading docks that will alleviate congestion and streamline the loading process, allowing trucks to stay parked until they are fully loaded.
“This addition is part of ProVia’s vision for the future,” says Brian Miller, president. “We’re optimistic about our industry and want to make sure that we are doing all we can to be ready to provide our customers what they need, when they need it. ProVia is expanding our product offerings, and this new addition gives us room to manage and deliver them efficiently.”
