New distribution facility supports growing component demand

Galco Industrial Electronics has opened a new distribution center in Madison Heights, Mich. Galco president and CEO, Allison Sabia, said: “In 2021 Galco experienced massive growth while combatting continuous supply chain issues and delays. Our new warehouse will allow us to find solutions to these disruptions by stocking a broader selection of products and getting them to our customers more efficiently.”

The facility will accommodate Galco’s growing inventory, which includes more than 350 authorized product lines from more than 670 brands. The new facility will allow Galco to ship more than 1,000 orders each day.

Double the size of Galco’s previous facility, the new product distribution center will offer shorter lead times, more workflow efficiency, a media area to share more details about each product, and additional storage space for large drives and motors.

Sabia added: “Having a larger distribution center will enable us to grow faster and continue to partner with the industrial automation market to support the future of technology.”
