PrimeSource Building Products’ Salt Lake City Facility Makes Their Move to a Larger Location

DALLAS 4/16/2018 – PrimeSource Building Products continues its focus on serving their customer’s needs by relocating to a larger facility. The new facility is located just eight miles away. The move brings a larger facility, expanding it square foot from 55,000 to 107,000. They have three acres, have increased the number of racking bin locations from 2,000 to 3,000 and they have increased the amount of doors from four to 23.
PrimeSource Building Products started planning this relocation about one year ago. They saw potential and opportunity in the market and knew it was time to expand. The investment in expanding and adding more and different product lines offer better solutions to their customers by providing more products and allows the company to provide faster service.
Aaron Knight, DC Manager, said “the new offices were completed by the end of March and then came the fun of moving the 225 truckloads of inventory, racking and miscellaneous office items into the new building.” By April 16th, they were settled in and haven’t looked back. Knight said that “employee morale and excitement has also increased with this move.”
This facility currently delivers products on four trailers covering 8,000 miles with 130 customer stops each week. The area consists of all of Utah, most of Idaho, Western Wyoming and Northeast Nevada. The drives aren’t bad either, with geography ranging from snowcapped mountains to high desert plains and national parks in between.
There will be a small grand opening at the new location in mid-July to celebrate all that has been and the great things to come. DC-43 has accomplished a steady sales growth over previous years and is on pace to perform over their budgeted numbers for 2018.
