All Integrated Solutions, a division of MSC Industrial Supply Co. (NYSE: MSM), opened a new distribution center Monday in the Minneapolis-Saint Paul, Minnesota metro area.

The new facility, located at 10680 Fountains Drive in Maple Grove, covers 52,000 square feet. The center is 170% larger than the company’s previous distribution center in nearby New Brighton, AIS said.

“In response to growing customer demand, we are pleased to move into a larger distribution center that can accommodate our warehouse and kitting capacity needs to better serve assembly and manufacturing customers in the Greater Minneapolis/St. Paul metro area and beyond,” AIS President Nick Ruetz said.

The newest facility includes a “state-of-the-art” warehouse system utilizing narrow aisles, wire-guided material handling equipment and 32-foot-high ceilings to improve storage efficiency, the company said.

In addition to the new facility in Maple Grove, AIS operate eight facilities in Franksville, Wisconsin; Fargo, North Dakota; Cedar Rapids, Iowa; Grand Rapids, Michigan; Traverse City, Michigan; Connersville, Indiana; Atlanta, Georgia and Monterrey, Mexico.

MSC last month reported 2021 third-quarter sales were up 11% over the same period last year.
