Benjamin Moore & Co., the Montvale-based manufacturer of paints and other coatings, announced Monday that it is opening a new 374,725-square-foot distribution center in Oakland, California, in 2015.
In addition, Benjamin Moore said it will be expanding in the Southeast later this year, and in the Mid-Atlantic region in 2015.
Benjamin Moore said the Oakland center will support the distribution of all of its products, and eventually serve as a key hub for its network of Asia Pacific distributors.
“Benjamin Moore & Co.’s business continues to grow, and with it the demand for increased distribution and fulfillment operations to deliver our best-in-class products to our network of independent retailers and customers,” Mike Searles, president and CEO of Benjamin Moore & Co., said in a prepared statement. “We’re committed to being the best partner for our retailers in every way and with this new distribution center customers can expect to see many new Benjamin Moore stores opening.”
Known as the Goodman Logistics Center, the new site is a Class A industrial warehouse, and will be leased to Benjamin Moore by Goodman Birtcher North America on behalf of the owner, Goodman North American Partnership. It is Benjamin Moore’s first Silver Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design site.
