CEVA has announced that it has acquired a 42,735 sq m (460,000 sq ft) facility in Southern California, in the US. Masco Corporation, a manufacturer of brand-name consumer products, has signed a multi-year contract as the first customer in the facility.
The facility is located within three miles of the Ontario airport and one mile of major interstate arteries, making it an ideal hub for west coast distribution. It can currently handle 300 trailers with its 50 doors and there are plans for expansion. The facility is equipped with multi-tier pick modules and automated sortation to help maximize order processing efficiency.
"Our team has worked diligently to ensure that we're providing Masco a unique value proposition and the level of service Masco was looking for. This opportunity builds a strong footprint for CEVA providing a significant growth opportunity in Consumer and Retail goods distribution," said Andy Allen, Director of Business Development for CEVA.
