Edward Don Opens Washington Distribution Hub

Foodservice equipment-and-supplies distributor Edward Don & Company announced the opening of a new distribution center in Auburn, Washington today.

The 157,000-square-foot facility is fully operational, run by a staff of approximately 80 employees, and stocks 7,000 items with room for expansion, the company said in a press release.

The company began planning for the new distribution center after Edward Don & Company acquired Kent, Washington-based Smith & Greene Company in January, 2018, the company said.

“This is a multi-phase rollout that has been carefully planned and executed over the past year,” said Mike Bartoszek, vice president of operations for Edward Don & Company. “It allows us to ensure that our customers experience a seamless transition without any risk of service interruptions.”

CEO Steve Don added:  “The increased presence in the Pacific Northwest market provides tremendous advantages. We’ll have increased exposure to a vibrant market as well as a springboard into western Canada.”

The Auburn facility is Edward Don & Company’s seventh and latest addition to its national distribution network.
