Cherry Hill, N.J. (PRWEB) October 01, 2013
NFI, a leading supply chain company headquartered in Cherry Hill, New Jersey, is pleased to be recognized as one of New Jersey’s Top 100 Private Companies by NJBIZ magazine. NFI has been a part of the NJBIZ’s Top 100 Private Companies list since 2009, each year improving rank, moving from tenth to ninth this year, and also ranking as the top third party logistics company on the 2013 list.
NFI, which has been privately held by the Brown family since its inception in 1932, is one of the fastest growing integrated supply chain providers worldwide. Big or small, a Fortune 500 Company or local business, NFI specializes in worry-free supply chain solutions that are customized to surpass the customer’s business needs.
The company operates more than 20 million sq. ft. of warehouse space nationwide and has 13 locations in New Jersey. More than 800 of NFI’s 6,700+ employees work in the state. In addition to transportation and warehousing solutions, NFI offers a wide array of other services to businesses, from cross-dock to intermodal, to real estate and development.
Florence, NJ is the home of NFI Park at Florence Crossings, a large campus with available warehouse and office space. It is located at 2020 Route 130 North, a prime location less than half of a mile from the New Jersey Turnpike, and the Pennsylvania Turnpike extension. Within the last year, NFI’s Real Estate division was chosen by Subaru to relocate and expand the automaker’s parts distribution center and training facility to NFI Park at Florence Crossings. This built to suit 500,000 sq. ft. facility was completed and fully operational in June 2013.
This state-of-the-art facility leads to further opportunities for the surrounding NJ area, including plans for highway improvement, community involvement from a new community garden at Florence’s Municipal Building, along with spurred business interests in the area creating short and long-term employment opportunities in Burlington County.
NFI’s Real Estate division also relocated a business within New Jersey this year through opening its office complex in Mannington, New Jersey (Salem County) to the tenant, Fresenius Medical Care. NFI invested over one million dollars into renovating the space, but it was well worth the investment due to the improvements this facility contributes to the community.
“NFI will continue to strive for opportunities throughout New Jersey in aiming to create new job opportunities and economic development,” said Jeff Brown, President and Vice Chair of NFI. “We have been based out of this state since NFI’s inception in 1932 and would like to create the opportunity for other businesses to thrive here as well.”
