Hawley to Open West Coast Distribution Center

Published June 8, 2011

LEXINGTON, SC (BRAIN)—Riding the coattails of the most successful month in their 25-year history, Hawley is opening a West Coast distribution center in Sparks, Nevada—a suburb of Reno.

The new center will complement Hawley’s East Coast hub in South Carolina and provide a more complete national coverage.

“Dealers and vendors have been asking us for years to expand out west, but we wanted to wait until the timing was right,” said company president, Steve Hawley. “We are now in a great position to not only satisfy their requests but exceed their expectations. We haven’t finalized an opening date yet but we plan to open before the end of the year.”

This announcement does not come hastily. Hawley has been testing the western market preemptively for several years and the results of those tests proved that there is robust demand for their business model.

Hawley added, “Dealers are truly looking for a company they can partner with. Our professional network of outside account managers coupled with a high level of personalized dealer services and a comprehensive mix of products have proven to be a winning combination for our customers since 1986.”

One of the many benefits of Hawley’s recent partnership with Lambert is their access gained to critical resources, which have helped to make this cross-national expansion possible. Lambert general manager Sylvain Caya went on to added, “We are very excited about Hawley’s future growth in the U.S. market.”
