Thermoplastics piping systems manufacturer IPEX recently announced the grand opening of its new Stockton distribution center in the central valley of California.

The new facility nearly quadruples IPEX’s available warehouse space in the region and allows it to store significantly more part numbers, the company explained. A yard also was constructed for the storage of pipe, bringing more products closer to customers and end-users.  

“We listened to our customers and identified an opportunity to grow our presence on the West Coast by building this facility,” said Travis Lutes, president and COO of IPEX. “We constantly explore ways to offer our customers an exceptional experience and that includes the ability to supply their needs in a timely and expedient manner.

“In addition, this new facility has allowed us to double our employee base and solidify our commitment to the local community.”
