Christian Book Distributors announces the grand opening
of its new warehouse expansion
Peabody, Massachusetts, October 3, 2016: Christian Book Distributors (CBD) is thrilled to announce the completion of its 70,000 sf warehouse expansion at its headquarters in Peabody, Massachusetts.
The construction, which started in April of this year, taking 6 months to complete, will allow the company to bring into the building 11,000 pallets of inventory that have been housed in four offsite facilities.
Ray Hendrickson, President/CEO of CBD, said “this much needed expansion to our warehouse will help us immensely with the management of our inventory, as we no longer have to navigate our way thru four offsite facilities to locate product to fulfill our customer orders. We are extremely happy to have the new space up and running in time for our busy Christmas season. We are especially thankful to the City of Peabody for working with us on permitting, Citizens Bank for financing, Dacon as General Contractor, SMMA as architect and Fraser Project Management as consultant in the building process.”
The company is planning a ribbon cutting ceremony at the site on Wednesday, October 5that 10am. In attendance will be CBD’s staff, local dignitaries, representatives from Dacon Construction, and other invited guests.
CBD is the largest religious catalog/internet company in the world, sending out more than 65 mailings of unique catalogs to millions of customers each year. Customers have access to a premier selection of Christian products—over 530,000 books, Bibles, church supplies, gifts, toys, games, CDs, DVDs, academic references, commentaries and more.
