Summerville, S.C.—Cali has officially opened its first custom-built distribution center here. The new center is the first of four being planned by the omni-channel flooring and decking company, and launched with a grand opening ribbon-cutting ceremony on Thursday Nov. 3, 2022. Guests were treated to tours of the new facility and speeches from local council members and port officials.
“We are thrilled to launch this distribution center along with a new relationship with the community of Summerville,” said Doug Jackson, Cali president, “Cali has found success by prioritizing the well-being of not just our customers and partners, but our employees as well. We look forward to supporting our new South Carolina team so that we may all grow and accomplish great things together.”
The Summerville center now serves Cali customers along the eastern seaboard, enabling faster deliveries and more reliable service of high-quality flooring, composite decking and other home design collections.
“I am excited about what this DC will add to the customer experience,” said Eugene Garcia, Cali COO. “The 250,000-square-foot facility supports a multi-shift operation with product sampling, customer service and a logistics team. Our goal is to provide a world-class service experience.”
When fully staffed, the center will employ about 50 new Cali team members, primarily recruited from the local community. The company’s acclaimed employee culture will be extended to the Summerville team, along with competitive salaries and benefits.
