EFCO opens three new distribution centers July 17

At a time when many manufacturers are scaling back, EFCO is forging into the future, adding three new distribution centers in Denver, Phoenix, and Salt Lake City to meet the distinct material needs and timelines of glazing contractors.

"EFCO knows how important it is for today's glazing contractors to obtain materials quickly, consistently, and cost-competitively," said EFCO President and Chief Operating Officer (COO) Mike Farquhar.  To expand accessibility to its products, EFCO will lease space from Pella® Window & Door distributors in the Phoenix and Salt Lake City areas, and open a new EFCO distribution center in Denver.

"As a Pella Company, EFCO is excited about leveraging the strategic physical locations of the Pella system across the nation, selling products through the industry's most talented independent sales representatives to meet the needs of glazing contractor customers," Farquhar said.

EFCO will inventory products at each location, and provide estimating and customer service through the independent sales representative serving area customers.  To reach EFCO's Denver, Colo. area facility, located at 3820 Revere Street, call Christina Sutton at 303-715-0240, ext. 225. EFCO's Salt Lake City distribution center is located at 12382 South Gateway Park Place, Ste. 300B.  To place an order, call Cheryl Gagnon at 303-715-0240, ext 244. In the Phoenix area, call Suzee Richard at 303-715-0240, ext 233. The Phoenix area EFCO operation is located at 730 West Fairmont Drive in Tempe, Ariz.

"Our new distribution centers will provide regional access to stock lengths, fabricated materials, entrance doors, and selected curtain wall accessories, helping reduce time and freight expenses for EFCO customers seeking quality aluminum fenestration materials," Farquhar said.

In addition to the newest western U.S. locations, EFCO also operates three service centers in Las Vegas, Chicago, and Verona, Va.
