Emery-Waterhouse, a Portland, Maine-based distributor of hardware and building materials, held an open house Sept. 10 to celebrate the opening of a new distribution center in Northeast Pennsylvania.
During the event, held at the Emery Building Materials distribution center in Pittston, Pa., customers and vendors had the opportunity to meet with Emery’s staff and learn more about its state-of-the-art inventory and warehouse management systems.
The facility, which began operations in June, is located at the CenterPoint Commerce & Trade Park in Pittston. While at the open house, vendors were able to spotlight new products and offer specials on select items, while customers had the opportunity to purchase select merchandise at discounted rates.
“Thanks to the support of customers, suppliers and our team, this was a very positive event which is the beginning of some nice growth opportunities for all of us,” said Steve Frawley, president of Emery-Waterhouse.
Last year, Emery expanded its building materials product line and established its presence in the Mid-Atlantic region with the acquisition of the Morgan Distribution Co., a specialty distributor in the building supply business. Additionally, Emery expanded its building materials product offering to include the Stallion Fastener line and additional exterior and bulk home building products.
