US-based independent packaging supplier Shorr has expanded its distribution centre and opened a new warehouse at Tech Park facility in Nashville, Tennessee.

The new warehouse is located close to the previous location and is said to be only 12 miles from downtown Nashville.

It will continue to serve the same areas in Tennessee and Kentucky, with a special focus on the Nashville, Bowling Green and Knoxville areas.

Shorr chief executive officer Craig Funkhouser said: “Shorr needed a larger facility to support our continued growth and to help operate more efficiently.

“We will continue to focus efforts on providing high service levels for all our customers. The larger facility will help us gain advantages within the region, which can be passed on to help provide better service to our national, multi-location customers.”

By combining multiple warehouses and third-party locations (3PL) within the area into a single warehouse, Shorr’s new facility is expected to provide better access to the customer-dedicated inventory and specific stock items such as corrugated boxes and stretch film.

The new facility also provides kitting and co-packing services, which are offered at Shorr’s facility in Chicago, Illinois.

Shorr regional sales manager Randy Whiteaker said: “We are excited to add to our growing commitment to the Southeast and specifically Middle Tennessee.

“The new facility in the Nashville area will serve as Shorr’s Tennessee Center of Operations and allow for increased service levels to our existing customers, as well as, our future business partners. As an ESOP Company, it is important that we build assets in strategic markets and we see ‘Music City’ as just that.”

The 125,000ft² Tech Park facility will provide Shorr more than three times the amount of space previously utilised.

Headquartered in Aurora, Illinois, Shorr is reported to be one of the oldest and largest independent distributors of packaging materials and equipment in the country.

Its portfolio includes corrugated products, carton closure, pallet unitisation products, protective packaging and flexible packaging, in addition to extensive capabilities in customised corrugated design.
