Meyer Distributing, Inc. has announced the addition of its Las Vegas location.
The cross-dock will have a direct feed from Meyer's Ontario, California distribution hub which houses one of the largest inventories of automotive accessories and RV parts in the Southwest.
“We have received great support in this market and are happy to make additional investments for the customers that are investing in us,” Meyer Distributing Vice President of Sales and Marketing Nick Gramelspacher says. “We are doubling our delivery frequency to the Las Vegas market and for the first time are going to service St. George and Cedar City, Utah from our local crossdock.”
“Just a few years ago we didn’t have more than a handful of third party only customers west of the Rockies,” Meyer Distributing CFO Jeff Braun says. “I’m very proud of the employees that worked feverishly to establish all of our western infrastructure and to grow the markets into a significant portion of our overall business. I’m also very thankful to customers that gave a new company a chance to prove what we can do. We look forward to building on this foundation as we continue to reinvest in our logistics and inventory throughout the west.”
