Palmer-Donavin has moved into its new facility in Hebron, Ky. After months of research, the company decided to move into the Hebron market and expand its service area to Nashville, Tenn., as part of Palmer-Donavin’s focus on geographic expansion. The 200,000-square-foot Hebron, Ky., facility will deliver to select dealers in Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana, and Tennessee.
“We will be able to expand our service area without disrupting our current delivery days and, with the new facility, we can better serve our will-call business,” Vic Enis, regional sales manager, said in a news release.
By moving from West Chester, Ohio, to Hebron, Ky., Palmer-Donavin said the new facility is more centrally located in the branch’s service area. The facility features improved lighting, a style of concrete with less control joists, and a new configuration or racking to allow for more product to be warehoused, according to Palmer-Donavin.
“The layout of the racking in the new building has better flow of product that will allow us to be more efficient with the handling of product and timelier on transfers and deliveries,” Tom Bartlett, vice president of operations, said. “We’re also excited about the facility’s new construction as we expect less wear on equipment and on the bodies of employees. In terms of location, it is conveniently located close to Interstate-275, which will allow us to avoid morning rush hour traffic with route vehicles.”
Columbus, Ohio-based Palmer-Donavin is a distributor of building materials and a door fabricator with eight locations throughout the midwest servicing dealers in 11 states.
