Jones Stephens recently announced it has expanded its distribution capabilities to the West Coast and has started to fulfill orders from its new Valencia, Calif., distribution center. A formal ceremony took place June 10. The new investment is part of Jones Stephens’ “We Got it …West Coast” initiative designed to bring the best selection of products with the highest level of customer care directly and efficiently to Western U.S.-based customers.

The Valencia DC supports 5,000 most-frequently ordered Jones Stephens plumbing and MRO products. The company said its strategic West Coast location provides faster and more cost-effective replenishment of those core products to customers located in 12 Western states. Jones Stephens added in most cases, orders placed by 2 p.m. PST will be delivered by the following morning.

 The new facility strengthens the company’s national distribution system with more than 400,000 sq. ft. of warehouse space in Alabama, Pennsylvania and now California.
