AVAD Opens Richmond, Va., Location
Distributor AVAD opened a new distribution center in Ashland, Va., a suburb of Richmond. The facility, at 13,000-plus square feet, provides a complete inventory of products, along with training and technical and sales support. It’s now accepting orders for pickup, with full-scale shipping operations beginning this month. Grand opening celebration plans are underway.
“We’ve been looking at adding a Richmond location for a number of years,” said Kip Dellinger, vice president of AVAD Metro East. “We know from our market research that there is great demand. Our customers have been asking us to establish a distribution center in this area for some time. This new location will provide convenience and cut down on travel time for our dealers, saving them considerable time and money. This facility is literally seconds off the interstate. The location is just terrific for our Richmond and Tidewater area dealers and for our dealers up I-95 towards DC.”
