Elkhart, Indiana – National RV Supply, a wholesale company serving the RV and outdoor industry, has announced the addition of its newest distribution and will-call hub in Wilsonville, Oregon (in the greater Portland area) to support growth in the US Pacific Northwest.
The facility began operation in mid-July, allowing rapid delivery of products to Oregon, Washington, Idaho and areas of Northern California, and additionally will serve as a will-call pick up location for the Portland area dealers. Dealers are able to order online and designate pick up at the facility or delivery from the facility for key products available from National RV Supply. Wilsonville expands the rapidly growing NRVS distribution footprint that currently includes facilities in Kentucky, Florida and California and will be launching a new 200,000 square foot distribution center in Dallas, Texas in October 2016.
“We are grateful for the enthusiastic support we have seen from dealers since National RV Supply expanded operations earlier this year,” National RV Supply President Johnny Sirpilla says. “Adding a facility in the Pacific Northwest to our network is a big step forward and we are planning to add more distribution capability to our network as we continue to grow.”
National RV Supply has one mission within the wholesale RV aftermarket industry, which is to deliver a wholesale pricing model that passes along the bulk of the discounts National RV Supply receives based on its volume and long standing relationships with key industry vendors. Products can be delivered directly from National RV Supply distribution centers, available for pre-order delivery, picked up or couriered from commercial regional delivery services available at select will call centers across the country, or by shopping at more than 120 Camping World retail stores.
The dealer portal, which can be viewed at www.NationalRVSupply.com, is only available to RV dealers, campgrounds and RV service centers that have established a wholesale account with National RV Supply.
