Branchburg, NJ (PRWEB) September 13, 2007
Bridgewater Wholesalers, Inc.® (BWI®), the leading East Coast supplier of millwork to independent retailers, has announced the completion of the first phase of a 20,000 square-foot renovation of its headquarters in Branchburg, New Jersey. The final phase is expected to be completed by year-end.
The renovations will allow BWI to offer a larger inventory and shorter lead times than ever before, and will provide BWI the opportunity to optimize every aspect of its operation. The renovations are indicative of the company's growth and determination to better serve a customer base that now includes fourteen states.
Despite the fact that there are far fewer independents today than there were a few years ago, independent retailers have certainly found their niche. Many builders and homeowners want the personalized service and custom care that the big chains have difficulty providing. That insistence on old-school quality and service won't go wanting as long as suppliers like BWI are around.
According to Gerry Cooper of BWI, "Independents are as much a part of our success as we are of theirs. Independent retailers all along the East Coast depend on us to help them compete. That's the role we've chosen for ourselves here at BWI, and we are proud of the fact that our success is an indication that the independent retailer is alive and well."
For over 20 years, BWI has been supplying specialty millwork to privately owned lumberyards and independent retail establishments serving local builders and homeowners. BWI has added five satellite offices, four within the last five years, and has substantially increased the number of vehicles in its delivery fleet. Currently, 38 trucks a day are loaded off BWI docks and bound for independents from the Southeast to New England.
With over 600 employees, six locations, and the largest fleet of delivery vehicles of any independent supplier in the industry, BWI has established itself as the premier provider of fine millwork and door products for independent retailers from Maine to North Carolina. The company has regularly been acknowledged for its consistent quality, exceptional customer service, and highly professional staff.
