Kenco Opens New Upper Midwest Distribution Center
The company currently has 100 associates at this location and anticipates adding 10 more permanent jobs in the next two years. Goods manufactured in upper midwest locations will be shipped from the Kalamazoo DC to both North American and international destinations.
“Increased shipping volumes and strong customer demand for services prompted us to build the expanded DC,” said Paula Hise, Kenco’s group vice president, health and personal care. “We have leveraged this opportunity by including best-in-class warehouse and management tracking systems that provide our clients with centralized distribution and planning capabilities.”
Kenco will provide a full range of distribution services at the Kalamazoo DC including order fulfillment, reverse logistics, raw materials management, and transportation.
Kenco is headquartered in Chattanooga, Tennessee, and has more than 90 warehouse facilities spread across the U.S. and Canada.
