FEDERAL WAY, WA -- Weyerhaeuser Distribution has completed the relocation of its Eugene, Ore., distribution center 40 miles north to Albany, Ore.
The new Albany facility conveniently positions operations between the Eugene and Portland markets while significantly expanding space from 66,000 square feet under roof to 300,000 square feet under roof. The increased space available in Albany not only moves storage of nearly every SKU undercover, it will also allow the location to grow its cedar and lumber lines, expand into pine products and add Simpson Strong-Tie engineered wood hangers.
"The dramatic increase in capacity at Albany will further ensure our dealers can get the products they want and need from a single source," said Dee Goodin, area general manager for Weyerhaeuser Distribution. "Combined with our reputation for on-time, accurate deliveries and array of value-added services, it's one more way we're demonstrating a deep commitment to stellar customer service."
The move is one of many sizeable investments Weyerhaeuser Distribution has embarked on over the past year, including a similar relocation of the company's Stockton, Calif., operations that consolidated two facilities to improve efficiencies and expand capacity. Other investments include hiring 146 new associates in sales, operations and support functions, and upgrades to wireless tracking technology, phone systems and lift equipment.
