Malouf Announces New Distribution Center in Texas
Utah-based Malouf has announced its recent acquisition of a nearly 1-million-square-foot warehouse distribution property in Dallas, Tex.
The building sits on 94 acres and features 54-foot ceilings and 160 dock doors. Combined, these features will help Malouf provide accurate and efficient order fulfillment and improve its vertical integration capabilities.
“We live in a world of instant gratification,” said Mike Douglas, vice president of sales. “People are conditioned to want their product in two days, and our new strategically located distribution center makes it possible for our partners to give customers this option without having to pay triple the cost for shipping.”
Prior to acquiring the property, this facility served as a distribution center for Toys R Us. The new warehouse is equipped with an impressive automated system that the Malouf in-house development team can customize to ship more than 3,600 units per hour out of this facility alone. Additionally, this location will help the company better service its international clientele located in Central and South America.
Malouf will begin shipping products out of this new warehouse at the beginning of next year. With all four of its distribution centers, the company can offer two-day ground shipping to 98 percent of the continental United States. Malouf warehouses total 3 million square feet and are located in Utah, Ohio, North Carolina and Texas.
“With these four distribution points, we have the ability to offer fast and convenient shipping through our drop-ship program,” Douglas said. “This means that our partners don’t have to carry as much stock, allowing them to be more responsive to customers’ needs.”
