St. Louis, MO June 16, 2015 – Distribution Management (DM) is expanding its St. Louis distribution center doubling its space and capacity, boosting its overall national distribution capabilities, which includes three other strategic locations. DM hosted a ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the expansion on May 29th and began moving product into the new space on June 1st.
"The celebration was not only to acknowledge and show appreciation for our past success, but to also observe our decisive commitment to becoming bigger and broader in the future," said Sean Fleming, CEO. "The added space will support both of our business divisions including equipment and product line expansion within the Supplies Network business portfolio, as well as much needed space for our quickly expanding DM Fulfillment customer base."
"This space will be used for high-velocity, small package order fulfillment along with LTL shipments and some bulk storage, ideal for the Omni-channel demands we face in today’s market," explained Rick Goe, VP of Supply Chain. "We expect this facility to steadily increase the number of orders processed daily through its highly-automated systems and experienced staff."
Fleming added, "DM is primed for organic growth and anticipates acquisitions within the next five years that will result in further expansion of its national distribution footprint." DM hosted supply chain vendors, the distribution center staff and company’s executive team at the ribbon cutting celebration. The catered event included games, prizes and a "dunk tank" for employees and vendors to take a shot at dunking both Fleming and Goe – many were successful.
