CHERRY HILL, N.J., 5/1/14 – NFI, a leading supply chain company headquartered in Cherry Hill, New Jersey, is pleased to announce the grand opening of its Distribution Center in Kutztown, PA. This 1,000,000 square foot facility expands the footprint of NFI in the Lehigh Valley and will serve as the distribution center for 40% of the global volume of Ocean Spray.
“It has been an exciting week for Ocean Spray,” said Ed Poloway, Ocean Spray Director of Operations and Supply Chain. “On Tuesday we held the grand opening of our manufacturing plant and today we held the ribbon cutting of the distribution center operated by NFI.
“Ocean Spray values long-term relationships, and with NFI we have a partner who understands our business. Together we collaborate to solve business challenges and meet the goals of Ocean Spray,” continued Poloway.
On July 16, 2013, ground was broken at the very site where the ribbon cutting celebration is occurring today. In a short ten months, with some of the most extreme weather in history, the distribution center was built and fully operational.
Sid Brown, NFI CEO, added: “With great partners and a dedicated team we delivered the distribution center ahead of schedule – even with record snowfall of over 68 inches. It is a pleasure to witness the ongoing growth of Ocean Spray after over a decade of working together and we thank Ocean Spray for the partnership.”
