In the first quarter of 2012, Wind-lock will begin stocking and shipping from its new distribution center in Reno, Nev. This will be company’s first facility in the West.

The warehouse will be stocked with a full complement of products, including: the complete drywall tool offering and key items in the EIFS, Weatherization and Stealth product lines to service the Western half of the United States.

“We’ve been servicing the West through satellite warehouses,” said Andrea Loud, director of operations for Wind-lock. “That strategy worked with our previous product lines, but as we have grown our business with the addition of drywall tools, we needed a better way to get our Western customers what they need, when they need it.”
