Walker Edison Boosts Warehouse Capacity
February 16, 2016,
SALT LAKE CITY-Ready-to-assemble furniture manufacturer Walker Edison has leased an 80,000-square-foot warehouse here to meet increased demand for its products.
The facility increases the company’s existing space, which encompasses a warehouse and its corporate offices. By essentially tripling its distribution capacity, the new warehouse will allow Walker Edison to stock its products to guarantee rapid response to retail customers.
The new facility will also have upgraded warehouse-management and inventory-management systems. It will be fully operational and stocked by the end of the first quarter of this year. In a company statement, Walker Edison said it keeps 95 percent of its product line in stock at all times to avoid out-of-stock periods whenever possible.
Walker Edison manufactures furniture in the categories of home entertainment, home office, casual dining, occasional, outdoor living products and youth bedroom furniture.
