Buyers Products, a manufacturer of work truck equipment, is doubling the size of its distribution center and corporate headquarters in Mentor, Ohio, to accommodate the company’s growing business needs.
The expansion includes 280,000 square feet of 67-foot-high, brand new, state-of-the-art warehouse space with 20 additional docks. Simultaneously Buyers will add another 17,500 square feet of office space and expand its employee parking.
“As customer demands continue to grow, it’s imperative that we keep up,” said Gary Kadow, Warehouse Operations Manager. “Our customers know to come to us for excellent service and rapid delivery. They expect to get what they need delivered when they need it. This expansion ensures we continue to exceed those expectations.”
Buyers current warehouse stands at 250,000 square feet. It was built in 2002 and expanded to its current size in 2007.
On August 18, a small groundbreaking ceremony was held in accordance with current social distancing guidelines to kick-off construction of the new expansion. The ceremony included brief statements from company leadership and a “Golden Shovel” ceremony to honor outstanding members of the Buyers team for their contributions toward the company’s ongoing success.
