This new investment by Hardware Holdings is part of the Jones Stephens’ We Got It… West Coast initiative designed to bring the best selection of products with the highest level of customer care directly and efficiently to western US-based customers.
The Valencia distribution center supports 5,000 most-frequently ordered Jones Stephens plumbing and MRO products. This strategic West Coast location provides faster, more cost-effective replenishment of core products to customers located in Washington, Oregon, California, Idaho, Nevada, Montana, Wyoming, Utah, Arizona, New Mexico, Hawaii and Alaska. In most cases, orders placed by 2:00 PM PST will be delivered by the following morning, plus a Will-Call Window allows orders to be picked up at the new facility within two hours of ordering.
“The addition of our Valencia distribution center allows us to better meet the needs of all our customers—especially our regional partners west of the Rockies—in a timely and cost-effective manner,” explains Michele Hudec, VP & GM, Commercial & Industrial Division. “It’s all part of our value proposition—to minimize our customers’ stock-outs and maximize their inventory efficiency. We want our regional partners to look to Jones Stephens as a national specialty plumbing and MRO products brand, offering the convenience and service level of a local supplier.”
The new distribution center is located at 28624 Witherspoon Parkway, Valencia, California 91355. Its addition strengthens the Jones Stephens’ national distribution system with over 400,000 square feet of warehouse space in three strategically placed locations–Moody, Alabama; Pottsville, Pennsylvania; and Valencia, California.
