Expansion ... Noland Co.
Noland Co. (Newport News, Va.) opened a 200,000-sq.-ft. distribution facility in Prince George Industrial Park in Virginia in October. The facility, built on a 54-acre site in Prince George County, 25 miles southeast of Richmond, was designed to be expandable to 400,000 sq. ft. It houses Noland's Distribution Logistics Center with an initial staff of 26 and an $8.6 million inventory of products from 32 manufacturers. The new DLC replaces two smaller central warehouses in Newport News, Va., and Richmond, Va., that were re-supplying the company's 99 branches in 13 states.
