CHESTERFIELD, MO -- MiTek announced that it has expanded its Houston, TX warehouse to 50,000 square feet to offer more product variety, more inventory, and fastest order fulfillment rates.
The expanded warehouse will contain USP Structural Connectors, USP Epoxy, MiTek truss plates, and Hardy Frame® Shear Wall product lines. MiTek chose to expand the Houston warehouse to address the needs of local contractor and DIY markets, where MiTek has seen increased demand for its products to address coastal wind codes and general building requirements.
Already operational today, the expanded warehouse will reach its new full capacity in January of 2016, allowing reduced "ship times" and heightened customer responsiveness. In fact, MiTek projects that it will be able to ship most products for same-day or next-day delivery. For even faster responsiveness, the warehouse will also offer local customers the convenience of "will call" capability.
"MiTek has seen growing demand for its products in the Texas markets, and this expanded warehouse will allow us to be much more responsive to order fulfillment for this larger customer base," said Todd Asche, Senior Vice President of Operations. "The warehouse will feature the latest in inventory monitoring and processing systems, offering the utmost assurance to customers of product availability across our expanded product lines."
