DBL To Move Warehousing, Layoffs Expected
DBL Distributing plans to shift the majority of its warehousing and shipping operations from the company’s Scottsdale, Ariz., headquarters to larger facilities in California and Pennsylvania owned by its parent company, Ingram Micro.
The move will increase DBL’s warehousing space from 100,000 square feet in Scottsdale to a combined square feet of more than a million in the Mira Loma, Calif., and Jonestown, Pa., locations.
DBL president Henry Chiarelli said the move should be completed by August. DBL will soon begin shipping product from Scottsdale to the new locations and will coordinate new product shipments with its manufacturer partners to those warehouses. The products will then be added to Ingram Micro’s inventory management system.
