A vital part of Werner Electric Supply’s goal to double sales to $500 million by 2020 is its 200,000-square-foot state-of-the-art distribution center in Appleton, WI. Not long ago, the distributor of electrical, lighting, datacomm, pneumatic, safety, and automation solutions was operating out of a 100,000-square-foot facility and was leasing additional warehouse space.
“We built the new facility to add inventory and services to meet our sales goal, as well as get our inventory back under one roof,” said Lloyd Fabry, Werner Electric Supply’s Regional Distribution Center Manager.
According to Fabry, the new facility holds 28,000 items in inventory. This includes everything from nuts and bolts to 20’ conduit lengths and 7,000-pound reels of wire on the electrical supply part of the business. It also includes items such as drives, PLCs, actuators, push buttons, and safety equipment on the machine control automation part of the business.
