Snow Joe has opened its newest East Coast distribution center, located at the Delaware Logistics Center in New Castle, Delaware. The new distribution center marks the third major East Coast site in Snow Joe’s growing U.S. footprint, which includes a facility in Salisbury, North Carolina, and a distribution center in Mahwah, New Jersey.
Located less than 10 miles from the Port of Wilmington, and with easy access to the I-95/295 corridor, the New Castle distribution center “provides numerous logistical advantages that Snow Joe intends to utilize to optimize its overall operational efficiencies,” states the company. “This distribution center will target all methods of fulfillment with a dedicated eCommerce area of the facility to ensure customer demand is promptly and reliably met.”
The 207,294-square-foot distribution center features more than 9,500 pallet positions, robotic picking and pallet-put-away automation, among other advanced warehouse-management technologies.
“We are excited to officially announce the opening of Snow Joe’s New Castle distribution center, our third distribution center on the East Coast,” says Paul Riley, Jr., chief operating officer at Snow Joe. “Its strategic location allows us to more efficiently serve our customers, especially during winter season. We look forward to creating close to 100 family wage jobs in and around the New Castle community in the coming months.”
Snow Joe reports that it will open a 535,000-square-foot distribution site in Houston, Texas, later this year.
