Today, ABB Electrification’s Installation Products division made inaugural shipments from its 400,000 square foot West Coast Distribution Center in Phoenix, Arizona. The distribution center, which will supply products to customers in the western region of the U.S., will be fully operational during the third quarter of 2020.
In addition to creating more than 100 jobs in the Phoenix area, the site will enable faster service and delivery times for a broad range of daily needed electrical products and in-stock items, such as Ty- Rap® cable ties, Color-Keyed® lugs, Steel City® commercial boxes and fittings and Elastimold® cable accessories.
“This new distribution center in Phoenix brings us much closer to customers in the western part of the U.S. It will allow us to deliver a wide range of essential electrical products to contractors and industrial builders with significantly improved lead times, cutting many delivery times by half,” said Chet Akiri, US Managing Director for Installation Products. “We are stocked in Phoenix and are excited to grow the business. We look forward to continuing to work to better serve our customers across the U.S. every day.”
“The new facility is part of our expansion plans to increase volume capacity and further enhance the speed and service capabilities of ABB Installation Products,” said Christy Tilton, US Sales Leader for Installation Products. “This exciting expansion is possible because of the commitment of our employees to better serve our valued customers.”
