Titusville, FL (PRWEB) June 17, 2013
Eckler Industries, Inc., the nation’s largest provider of restoration parts and accessories for classic and enthusiast automobiles, has signed an agreement with Grissom Centroplex to begin construction of a new 180,000sf warehouse facility. The enhanced fulfillment facility will later be followed by a new office building which will become the headquarters for the company.
The $9.5 million project provides sufficient space to keep up with Eckler’s growth plans over the next several years. “A new state-of-the-art fulfillment center will allow us to process orders faster and more efficiently than ever before – it’s a huge part of our effort to drive continued improvements in customer service” said Eckler’s CEO Matt Jordan. “We’re also delighted that we were able to work with Brevard County, Titusville city government, and the local Economic Development Councils to ensure we were able to find a good location and retain the experienced staff we rely on so much.”
“The new facility will be home to Eckler’s warehouse operations, but subsequent phases of the project will see the site become home to the company’s headquarters as well” explains Grissom Cetroplex’s Antonio Romano. “We’ve worked with Eckler’s for many years and are proud to play a role in supporting their growth.”
