Encompass expands West Coast service with new Las Vegas distribution center
Encompass Supply Chain Solutions, Inc., provider of Supply Chain Logistics, Parts Distribution, 3PL and 4PL solutions for a diverse range of finished goods and replacement parts, announced plans to open a warehouse and distribution center in the North Las Vegas area.
The facility – located at the Prologis Las Vegas Corporate Center 3, 4031 Market Center Drive – will be Encompass’ central supply point for repair parts delivery to customers west of Texas, and is scheduled to open in January 2018. Close to critical shipping ports, it will stock a full range of inventory for multiple verticals, such as Consumer Electronics, Major Appliance, Computer, Printer, Personal Care, Mobile and more from 200+ world-leading manufacturers.
The North Las Vegas facility further expands Encompass’ strategic footprint and complements its existing flagship distribution and high-tech repair center in Atlanta and distribution center in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. It will also augment the company’s current call center operation with the capability of extending support hours to 8 p.m. Eastern Time.
Encompass President and CEO Robert Coolidge said establishing a West Coast presence was essential to accommodate the company’s service focus and aggressive nationwide business growth.
“The company has been experiencing record sales through the addition of new clients and product verticals, particularly to support the whole home warranty industry,” said Coolidge. “This additional space will give us the flexibility to take on new programs and inventory, which also enables us to improve delivery times to customers in the region and beyond.”
The space is easily scalable, enabling Encompass to eventually build out core retrieval, technical repair and reverse logistics functions, as well as a technician training center.
Encompass is one of the most diversified parts distributors in the country, supporting a wide range of product categories from top global manufacturers. The company aims to supply parts and accessories to repair or maintain products throughout the home from the kitchen to the back yard. It primarily serves warranty companies, national retailers, independent servicers and consumers.
“North Las Vegas is home to some of the largest and most innovative companies for a reason: It’s easy and profitable to do business here, thanks to our close proximity to transportation hubs, favorable tax climate, skilled workforce and fast-track permitting and licensing processes,” said North Las Vegas Mayor John Lee. “We’re thrilled that an industry leader such as Encompass has chosen our city for its newest warehouse and distribution center, and we’re excited to see the company’s next phase of growth and success in North Las Vegas.”
North Las Vegas is also near the Tier 4 Gold campus of Switch, Encompass’ highly-secured off-site data storage partner. Combined with a third stand-alone facility, Encompass is even better positioned to maintain operational redundancy in case of business interruption.
“We are committed to providing an exceptional service experience to all our valued partners and helping them be more successful,” said Coolidge. “Opening a North Las Vegas location will help us better support both our customers and their business strategies.”
