On April 30th 2001, EB Brands™ opened a new Warehouse Distribution Center in Hazleton PA. The location was picked for it's proximity to Routes 80 and 81, known as one of the best trucking routes in the Northeast.
The Distribution Center, expanded to 350,000 square feet in 2007, is a state of the art facility which utilizes a new computerized Management System for inventory management and order fulfillment. The floor plan uses Very Narrow Aisle (VNA) technology allowing hi-lows to be wire guided. The Warehouse Management System guides the the hi-lows down the VNA's to pull pallets and deliver to the pack and drop areas. From here the inventory is brought to the Forward Picking locations for order fulfillment.
Racks are 5 levels high giving EB Brands™ 60% more warehouse capacity than the former warehouse facility
