Harrisburg, Pennsylvania-based electrical distributor Schaedler Yesco Distribution has announced it is investing in a larger inventory and warehouse space in Northeast Pennsylvania. The company said it broke ground on an expansion to its Pittston, Pennsylvania, location in August.
Construction is expected to be completed in early 2024, the company said in a news release.
“The Northeast PA corridor continues to be a strong market,” said Farrah Mittel, President. “We’re seeing great growth in manufacturing and warehousing, and that growth needs a reliable partner.”
A 2022 Pennsylvania Governor’s Action Team report noted that Northeastern Pennsylvania as “one of the most sought-after locations in the U.S. for e-commerce distribution, manufacturing, and national and regional headquarters, thanks to its regional approach to economic development,” the company said in a news release.
“In addition to more local inventory, this expansion will allow us to increase our Stage and Store Services and several other programs we offer in this market,” said Territory Manager, Jim Semyon. “We’ll more than double our existing space, allowing this location to serve the overall market very well as a regional distribution center.”
News of the investment comes just days after Schaedler Yesco announced plans to support its growing western Pennsylvania and eastern Ohio markets by restructuring its western sales team.
