The $4 million addition, which broke ground last year, increases the warehouse capacity by more than 60% with an added 80,000 square feet to accommodate additional storage for more than 9 million pounds of material, giving a total capacity of 206,000 square feet. The updated facility improves processing throughput and efficiencies and includes five additional loading docks as well as a new blender, equipment upgrades, and expanded repacking capacity to enhance value-added services such as custom blending, material repackaging, and bulk-out capability. The strategic location of the warehouse allows for the latest cut-off times in the industry, which provides customers more flexibility.

The facility, located at 5245 Dylan Drive, currently employs 12 people. Due to the Company’s product line growth and warehouse expansion, it’s anticipated that another 10-12 positions will be added. “When we built this facility in 2016, we planned for potential expansion,” said Mike Hall, Supply Chain Manager. “Due to the growth of the business and performance of our team, we’re excited to add this additional space earlier than we had originally planned. We value the partnership, commitment, and support offered by the City of South Bend to help make this possible. It will give us an increased ability to provide outrageous service to all of our customers as we grow along with them, always striving to exceed their expectations with each order.”
