ProVia Opens New Distribution Center
A new 54,000-square-foot door and window distribution center located at its corporate headquarters in Sugarcreek, Ohio, has been opened by ProVia. Equipped with 16 loading docks, the new center will alleviate congestion and streamline the loading process, allowing trucks to stay parked until they are fully loaded, officials note.
The new facility is the first phase of an 112,000-square-foot building expansion that began in 2012. Work is also underway to expand its entry door manufacturing capacities in 58,000-square-feet of the building expansion. ProVia doors and windows are currently being staged at the distribution center with plans to eventually cross-dock all ProVia products there. Solar energy panels are being used at this and two other production facilities as part of the company’s effort to lower energy costs.
“This addition is part of ProVia’s vision for the future,” says Brian Miller, president. “We’re optimistic about our industry and want to make sure that we are doing all we can to be ready to provide our customers what they need, when they need it. ProVia is expanding our product offerings, and this new addition gives us room to manage and deliver them efficiently.”
