Helps trim transportation time, expense for Southern U.S. glaziers



MONETT, Mo. — Dec. 1., 2009 —



At a time when many construction-related businesses are rapidly downsizing, EFCO continues its aggressive expansion, adding two new distribution centers in Texas to serve glazing contractors in the South.


"At EFCO, we’re committed to the success of our customers. Our focus is on becoming the premier supplier of storefront products to complement our industry-leading window and curtain wall products to meet commercial customer needs," said EFCO President and Chief Operating Officer (COO) Mike Farquhar. "By expanding and adding six convenient new locations in 2009 alone, we are making EFCO products more quickly and more widely available to EFCO’s customers across the U.S.," he said.

At each new Texas location, EFCO will inventory products, and provide estimating and customer service through independent sales representatives. To reach EFCO’s North Texas Distribution Center, call Richard Grooms at 800-539-1092, ext.301. The facility is located at 933 Hensley Lane in Wylie, in the Dallas metro area.

"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 innovative aluminum fenestration materials," Farquhar said. "We’re confident that EFCO’s new Texas distribution centers will be just as successful as each of our existing locations in meeting customer needs for obtaining quality materials quickly and consistently," he said.

In addition to the newest Texas locations, EFCO also operates three service centers in Las Vegas, Chicago, and Verona, Va. and distribution centers in Denver, Phoenix, and Salt Lake City.
