HARRISBURG, PA –Schaedler Yesco is expanding its Harrisburg-based central distribution center. The company broke ground on a 40-feet tall, 40,000 square foot addition on the existing warehouse’s west side in March. When complete, the facility will measure nearly 200,000 square feet.
“We’ve had an exciting few years,” explained CEO, Greg Schaedler. “We’ve not only expanded to 23 locations, but we’ve implemented a state-of-the-art Steinhauer ModCenter that cuts custom-modified enclosures, we added several valuable new services, increased the depth and breadth of our inventory, expanded our inventory management solutions and we’re about to launch a new e-Commerce website!”
While celebrating its growth, the company quickly realized space challenges.
“The success we’ve had has caused us to outgrow our space,” Farrah Mittel, company President shared. “With a continued, robust growth plan in place, we knew we had to address the growing pains we were feeling so we can maintain and build new services for both current and new customers.”
The new space represents 3000 new pallet storage locations, space appropriate for simple manufacturing, eight new dock doors opening to over 6000 square feet of additional receiving area and room to grow the company’s product and service offering.
In addition to the warehouse construction, Schaedler Yesco is also finalizing the expansion of its corporate offices, adding several work areas, two conference rooms, and a nearly 1500 square foot training facility.
“We strive to offer our customers the best solutions for their needs. Both of these projects allow us to give them the products, services, and training needed to help them achieve their goals,” said Mittel.
