D&H Distributing says Newnan facility will be its largest to date

D&H Distributing, a major North American computer products and consumer electronics distributor, announced this week that it will be opening in Newnan its largest warehouse facility to date. The new, 476,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art warehouse is set to open in early May. The Newnan facility will employ approximately 100 D&H "co-owners" on its opening day. "This is a big investment in the future on the part of D&H at a time when many other companies are cutting. We intend to support our resellers with the best possible infrastructure we can offer as they continue through 2009 and grow -- and there will be opportunities for growth, especially in the long term," said Michael Schwab, co-president at D&H Distributing. "We're also looking to optimally support our vendors. As they are forced to economize within their own organizations for the time being, they're looking toward their distribution partners to help maintain and grow their channel relationships."
D&H's vendor partners have in fact appealed to the distributor with plans to leverage D&H's services to help keep their vendor/channel relationships vital. Manufacturers are looking for more economical, reliable shipping, and advanced logistics to supplement their own capabilities. This is also why D&H has invested in new technological efficiencies such as server virtualization, new Web tools and other IT enhancements now being implemented with the help of a new CIO. "In this particular decline, there's been a dramatic shift toward vendors devoting more focus and resources to distribution, so we want to be ready with the assistance they're calling for," Schwab said. "They need to utilize the scale of partners like us to help maintain revenue." As the nation's leading technology distributor, D&H provides a wealth of resources to empower solution providers and consultants, delivering a broad selection of SMB categories, products and applications. The company's offerings span server and infrastructure, SOHO and mobile applications, consumer electronics and gaming. D&H's multi-market expertise, account-dedicated sales teams, sterling service and flexible financing options are unmatched in the industry. With a 90-year history serving as a trusted advisor to the reseller channel, D&H has been able to consistently reinvent itself based upon changing market conditions. The company prides itself on creating business partnerships with an astute focus on ease-of-doing-business, relationships, value, performance and service. D&H ships out of five separate locations in North America, including its US headquarters in Harrisburg and its Canadian headquarters in Mississauga, Ontario.
