Johnstone Supply has announced that its new Southwest Distribution Center in Las Vegas has officially opened and reached full operations.

According to Johnstone, the Las Vegas facility is a landmark event for the company and marks the completion of a national network of five major regional distribution centers. The official grand opening ceremony for the Las Vegas center was held April 19.

The distribution center initiated limited shipments in March and began gradually expanding operations. The facility is now fully operational, servicing 56 Johnstone stores throughout the region. The new 130,000-square-foot facility joins the existing major distribution centers in Portland, Ore.; Memphis, Tenn.; Allentown, Penn.; and Jacksonville, Fla.

As part of its strategy, Johnstone stores in each region have also been assigned an account manager responsible for supporting and creating targeted strategies and services to better serve member stores and Johnstone customers in each geographic area.
