Miami, Fla.— Mosaic Companies, a manufacturer and distributor of natural stones, slabs and tile, said it plans to open a new, state-of-the-art warehouse and distribution hub here. The new hub is expected to be fully operational by late fall 2022.
Located in the Countyline Corporate Park in Hialeah, Fla., the company said the new facility will increase its east coast warehouse footprint by nearly double and support all Mosaic Companies brands, including Walker Zanger, Opustone, Surfaces and Anthology Tile.
Designed and built to optimize storage capacity, inbound and outbound freight and overall logistics efficiency, the location will also host a brand-new Anthology Tile showroom as well as the company’s corporate office personnel, according to the company. In recent months, Mosaic Companies said it has been hiring for many positions, increasing its accounting, finance, design, supply chain, operations and logistic teams.
“We knew that to grow the business and better support our clients, dealers and distributors, we could not rely on a series of small, brand-centric warehouses in multiple locations,” said Keith Denny, president, Mosaic Companies. “We had to go big and modernize our onsite logistics infrastructure.”
According to the company, the new warehouse is momentous, not only in its size but also in its eco-responsibility. All lights and HVAC equipment used in the facility will be the most energy-efficient in the market, according to the company. All forklifts are brand new and electric, which benefit hugely from Florida’s power grid and reduce the company’s CO2 footprint.
Once open, the company said its new distribution hub will be fully integrated with the company’s logistics network and will help the organization streamline business on both the east and west coasts.
