Victaulic, the world's leading manufacturer of mechanical pipe joining systems, recently announced plans to open a Distribution Center in Redlands, CA, by February 2008. The new 75,390-sq.-ft. facility, at 26682B Almond Avenue, will serve as a primary distribution point for Victaulic products and tools.

The Redlands facility will replace an existing 41,000-sq.-ft. distribution facility in Long Beach, CA.

“With nearly double the space of our current facility, the new Redlands Distribution Center will allow us to increase stocking levels to quickly and efficiently service existing and new customers throughout the Southwest and beyond,” said Clark Hale, executive vice president.
“The Redlands location offers transportation and logistics benefits which will further enhance our delivery and service to the region,” Hale added.

Until the opening of the Redlands Distribution Center, the Long Beach facility will continue to carry the full general Victaulic product line as well as the complete FireLock product offering, including couplings and fittings, CPVC pipe and fittings, sprinklers and the new FireLock NXT™ device line. Pipe preparation tools and the Advanced Grooved System (AGS) products are also available at this location.
