Metrie recently announced that it is adding a new retail distribution center in Louisville, Ky.

The new facility is expected to be fully operational by the end of the year and, according to the company, puts Metrie in a position to continue to grow with one of its top retail customers: Lowe’s.

“The addition of the Louisville facility supports our commitment to building the best supply chain solutions in the industry,” commented Joe Woods, vice president and general manager, retail, for Metrie. “The Metrie retail team is excited for the new opportunities that this facility will bring for both the Metrie team and Lowe’s.”

The Louisville facility will provide additional customer service, speed to market, and flexibility in supporting operational and logistical efficiencies across its retail business, officials said.

“Growth continues to be on the forefront at Metrie as we continue to expand through new and improved facilities and recent acquisitions. The addition of the Louisville facility is another step in the pursuit of Metrie’s growth strategy, to be North America’s most trusted integrated millwork provider,” commented Kent Bowie, president and CEO. “In an ever-changing and dynamic industry, we are making commitments and business decisions to continue delivering the exceptional customer service that Metrie is known for. The Louisville facility is one example of how we continue to execute on our customer promise.”

Metrie has been in business since 1926, starting as a small, family-owned business in Vancouver, B.C. The company now has six solid wood and medium-density fiberboard (MDF) manufacturing facilities, plus 26 distribution centers in the U.S. and Canada.
