Santa Paula, CA-based BendPak is opening a new 100,000-square-foot distribution center near Mobile, AL to better serve customers in the eastern United States. The administrative and shipping complex, which is expected to be fully operational within 60 days, is located in Theodore, just a short drive from the expanding Port of Mobile. The new facility has easy access to three major interstates and five Class I railroads, facilitating same-day or next-day product delivery to more customers in the eastern half of the country.

The new warehouse will stock all of BendPak’s popular products. A future training facility will include a classroom and fully appointed service bay to offer customers a convenient option for quality technical training on BendPak’s expanding product lines.

“Today’s consumer expects immediate delivery, and we’re focused on helping that become a reality. The definition of Mobile is agile and transportable. We couldn’t think of a more befitting name to call this beautiful city, our new home,” said Jeff Kritzer, BendPak executive vice president.
