November 24, 2020 – IPEX celebrated the grand opening of its new Joliet distribution centre (DC), southwest of the Chicago metropolitan area.
The new facility is operated by LeSaint Logistics (a Chicago-based 3rd-party service provider), and has a starting size of 50,000 sf, with the possibility to expand beyond 200,000 sf.
This new DC “significantly increases IPEX’s available warehouse space in the region”, allowing the company to bring more products closer to customers.
“We constantly explore ways to offer our customers an exceptional experience, and that includes the ability to supply their needs in a timely and expedient manner,” says Travis Lutes, IPEX president & COO.
IPEX is an Aliaxis company, providing a range of thermoplastic piping systems to North American customers in the electrical, telecom, municipal, irrigation, plumbing and mechanical sectors.
