Imperial Supplies LLC, a Green Bay, Wisconsin-based subsidiary of W.W. Grainger, Inc. company (NYSE: GWW), on Tuesday announced it will be moving its Charlotte, North Carolina, warehouse operations seven miles away to a new development in Salisbury, North Carolina.
Imperial’s new distribution center, one of five nationwide, will more than triple the footprint of its current facility — to 150,000 square feet from 48,000 square.
“We are excited to expand our footprint in one of the newer developments in Salisbury, North Carolina, that allows us to continue to be part of the same community as we have for 26 years,” said Jenny Lowe, vice president, human resources, Imperial Supplies. “Our goal is to continue to serve our customers that need a fleet maintenance supplier that can deliver parts quickly and efficiently. With the expanded facility and our innovative storage system, we look forward to continuing to provide excellent customer service with talent from the local area.”
Imperial said it anticipates growing its workforce by 20 percent to support the larger facility.
