By early 2020, our previous warehouse approached capacity. We needed a larger space for continued growth, operational efficiency and new product development.
In Richmond, California, we found exactly what we needed. Our new 52,000-square foot facility offers room to grow, with a 3,000-square foot indoor engineering test lab and large outdoor engineering yard.
Located in the heart of the San Francisco Bay Area, a few miles from the ports of Richmond and Oakland, the facility has dedicated delivery access, three loading docks and a grade dock.
The expansive facility provides ample space to practice Kanban logistical controls and scheduling, a key to our affordability and same-day shipping. With dedicated in-flow, quality control check and assembly areas, we can stock ready-to-ship inventory by SKU.
During the pandemic, the large, well-ventilated space has allowed us to spread-out tasks, exceed social distancing guidelines and operate safely.
We’re proud to be part of Richmond, with a majority of our staff local to an often underserved community. Together, we hope to build on a legacy of innovation and industry that includes the remarkable Kaiser shipyards, Ford Motor Assembly Plant and Rosie the Riveter Home Front National Historic Park.
With options for further expansion and a network of third-party logistics partners across the country, we’re in great position for years of growth.
