WPRP expands with East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania locationMonday, August 31, 2015
WPRP Wholesale Pallet Rack Products, a Maple Grove, Minnesota-based wholesale pallet rack distributor, is expanding its East Coast operations with a new location in East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania. The new warehouse will carry a complete inventory of both new and used pallet rack, wire decks and pallet rack accessories exclusively for dealers, and will be one of the company’s primary quick ship locations. The new warehouse, which is minutes away from what was once the United Steel Products factory, is expected to open August 24 and begin shipping product at the beginning of September.
With locations already established in Maple Grove, Minnesota and Elgin, Illinois, the impetus of WPRP’s new location is the development of a pallet rack shipping hub centrally located within the nation’s northeast region. Five miles from the Delaware River and Pennsylvania-New Jersey border, East Stroudsburg is geographically positioned in the heart of the Mid Atlantic, less than 200 miles from New York City, Philadelphia, Baltimore and Hartford. In comparison to WPRP’s former Pennsylvania warehouse location in Erie, the East Stroudsburg warehouse will offer a significant freight advantage, particularly when shipping to the Northeast’s major metropolitan centers.
WPRP’s new warehouse will itself display some significant changes from the previous warehouse in Erie. The East Stroudsburg location will have more on-site staff, and will have a greater total available storage area than WPRP’s Erie warehouse. In addition to being larger and better manned than the existing warehouse, the East Stroudsburg location will have more shipping and receiving docks than its predecessor, allowing for a higher volume of product movement. The move is expected to provide a more accessible destination for most freight carriers.
Founded in 2000, WPRP is a wholesale distributor for a number of the nation’s leading pallet rack, shelving and wire decking manufacturers, providing racking to forklift and material handling dealers. Along with its Minnesota, Illinois and Pennsylvania locations, WPRP has several quick ship points located throughout each region of the United States.
