Orchid opens new distribution center

Home News Orchid opens new distribution center

TULSA, OKLA.—Orchid Ceramics has opened a 150,000-square-foot distribution center in Sunrise, Fla. The facility will be distributing the company’s porcelain lines and selected ceramic products throughout the Southeast.
The building is capable of holding 500,000 square feet of tile on a monthly basis. It houses several truck docks and is even equipped for customers to pick up their tile given they have a common carrier or company truck and pickup numbers.
“The opening of this facility allows for faster turnaround of orders for our partners in the Southeastern and Eastern states,” said Tena Wooldridge, marketing manager. “Originally receiving the product directly from South America, retailers in the Southeast will now save time and money as the tile will be closer in reach.”
Orchid Ceramics now has three regional distribution centers in the U.S. with the other two in New Albany, Ind., and Houston.
