Wilo Opens Distribution and Service Hub in Georgia
Wilo USA, a subsidiary of the Wilo Group, recently announced the opening of its new distribution and service facility in Thomasville, GA. The company specializes in submersible pumps for applications in water management, building services and groundwater.
“Our new distribution center will ensure we provide our valued customers with long-term, sustainable logistics and a service level second to none in the industry,” says Mark D’Agostino, President and CEO of Wilo USA.
Located three miles away from Wilo’s existing North America production plant, the new distribution and service center will be the hub for the company’s box product distribution is the U.S. in addition to supporting operations for Wilo Canada and Wilo Mexico.
The 61,625-square-foot facility includes a 3,000-square-foot service center that will be used to improve the Wilo service department and house new projects. Through the new location, Wilo is better positioned to efficiently serve its customers.
“We are part of a big company, but we can provide a very customized solution for our customers,” says D’Agostino.
Guaranteed Product Shipment is one example of Wilo’s customized solutions. This program offers a fixed portfolio of pumps that can built and delivered to the customer’s door in 10 days or fewer. This represents a time savings of more than 50 days when compared to the industry average of an 8- to 12- week lead time. Wilo attributes its impressive lead time to a nimble manufacturing cycle, which allows the company to offer products on a “fast track.”
