The Opening of the Warehouse and Showroom Continues a Period of Unprecedented Growth for Hanwha Surfaces
ATLANTA, GA, - MARCH 7, 2017 - Hanwha Surfaces, the American subsidiary of international conglomerate Hanwha L&C | Surfaces, announced today the opening of a direct distribution warehouse and designer showroom in Columbus, OH. The 40,192 square feet facility will be able to provide the surrounding area next-day deliveries of HanStone Quartz and Hanex Solid Surfaces.
The opening of the new facility comes on the heels of Hanwha Surfaces’ groundbreaking of a state-of-the-art second production line in Ontario, Canada in December 2016. The sprawling facility is in close proximity to the London factory and will provide OH, MI, Western PA, Eastern KY and WV with daily deliveries. Hanwha has hired eight distribution center and four sales employees to serve the needs of the new space. Hanwha also opened similar facilities in Philadelphia, PA in late 2015, Atlanta, GA in February of 2016 and Springfield, MA in spring 2016.
“The new facility gives Hanwha Surfaces the opportunity to directly engage and reach the fabrication, architecture and design communities,” says Steve Becker, VP of Sales & Marketing. “With the opening of this warehouse, we have an increased ability to better serve our loyal customers throughout the Midwest and beyond.”
“In a refurbished warehouse space, the company has taken great care to create not only a state of the art distribution center, but also an inviting showroom and lounge area.” Kim Cleveland, Midwest Sales Manager, envisions the showroom space serving as a resource for local fabricators, kitchen & bath professionals and the A&D community, as well as an event space for relevant organizations in the region.
In addition to highlighting full slabs of the popular, marble-inspired Cascina Collection from HanStone Quartz; the company worked with local fabricators Modlich Stoneworks and Distinctive Surfaces to create two islands with waterfall edges and seating, a vertical installation in the reception area and a refreshments bar.
