On Dec. 15, Pacific, Mo., Mayor Jeff Palmore joined John Ferring, Chairman of PLZ Aeroscience (PLZ) and Ed Byczynski, PLZ President and CEO, for a ribbon cutting ceremony commemorating the opening of the PLZ Aeroscience global distribution center.
The 160,000 square foot warehouse and distribution facility is located adjacent to the company’s Pacific, Mo., manufacturing facility and will serve as a centralized product fulfillment center for PLZ customers worldwide. This significant capital investment provides PLZ an opportunity to consolidate its North America warehouse footprint, bring distribution closer to manufacturing and add jobs in the community.
“The efficiencies we’ll gain by locating a state-of-the-art global distribution center adjacent to one of our larger U.S. manufacturing facilities is immeasurable,” said Ferring. “We’re now equipped with an expandable warehouse and distribution facility that will reduce lead times and enable quicker response to filling customer orders.”
“We are excited to have PLZ Aeroscience in our community and are excited about the new distribution center,” said Mayor Palmore. “The Pacific community continues to benefit with new employment opportunities as PLZ grows and invests in establishing a strong, long-lasting presence in Pacific, Missouri.”
