It’s official: TNG Worldwide is opening up its third distribution center in Coppell, TX, a Dallas suburb.
Gaye Wanner, VP of Logistics, has visited the site and is excited as punch. “It’s perfect for us. The space is already built out, they are adding a couple extra offices and it is located in a great area.”
Opening date is set for November 1. When Ted Eisenhut, VP of Purchasing, was asked if his team was ready for Texas he quipped. “This team is used to ordering for four DC’s so this shouldn’t be an issue. They are ready to provide the same stock levels in Dallas as LA and Detroit.”
Texas boasts four of the top 10 cities in the USA and is the only state to add population growth. The key markets are Houston, Dallas, Ft. Worth, Austin and San Antonio. Initially, the DC will ship inclusively throughout the state. “As we get inventory and movement under control, we will add a couple more states,” added Wanner.
The Texas DC will stock all thebeautybook products with the exception of Hospitality and furniture. This will help transition the opening.
Shawn Peralta, CFO, added “This will add tremendous growth to TNG and gives our growing customer base in Texas next day service. We are very excited for our customers.”
TNG will operate the largest distribution center in Texas and offer beauty professionals the largest selection and quantity of products. Both its competitors operate franchise locations and ship from their store locations.
This is going to be fun.
