Belron US to Open New Warehouse in Pittston, Pa.; Three More in the Works

Belron US has determined the location of its new warehouse in Pennsylvania, according to Jenny Cain, director of communications. The company had previously reported that as part of the integration of Diamond Glass, it would close the latter company's distribution facility in Kingston, Pa., and would move the operations to a new facility in the Scranton, Wilkes-Barre, Pa., area, as the Kingston facility was larger than needed.

"We have signed a lease for a warehouse that will open in the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre area at 175 CenterPoint Blvd., Pittston, Pa. during the first quarter of 2009," Cain says.

In addition, Belron US has plans to open three more new warehouse facilities in the Northeast, but has not yet determined the locations for these. The addition of the warehouses is "taking place to support additional volume expected as a result of the Diamond acquisition," Cain says.

Belron US promoted Shawn McClain, who previously was a general manager for the company, to group warehouse manager, in late October. Part of his duties in the new position include opening these four new warehouses in the Northeast. (CLICK HERE for related story.)
