QBP to open new Q-West facility in Denver this week

Published July 18, 2016

DENVER (BRAIN) — Quality Bicycle Products' new Q-West distribution center, which has been relocated from Ogden, Utah, to Denver, is set to begin shipping to customers Thursday, and will be fully operational by mid-August, QBP announced.

Along with the recent opening of QBP's new Reno, Nevada, facility, the company said the change will reduce ground service transit times for many of the distributor's customers.

"By relocating Q-West to the Denver area, we're now able to get to all of the major metro West Coast locations and the entire state of Colorado in one day," said Kim Brown, QBP's director of distribution. "Our Denver distribution center also helps us provide faster service to our Texas customers by decreasing our shipping time from three days to two. Across our four distribution centers, we're now able to deliver one- and two-day ground service to the majority of our customers."

Products stocked in the 65,000 square foot warehouse were chosen based on order frequency in the region, and the number of SKUs at the Denver facility will grow based on sales trends, QBP stated. In addition to offering one-day service, the new facility also has on-site sales and customer service staff.

Along with faster shipping times, QBP said it is bringing its advocacy efforts to Colorado. QBP will supply BMX bikes, parts and tools for a community bike shop and bike park in Lamar, Colorado — a small community with little bicycling activity.

QBP will also work with the Colorado Mountain Bike Association (COMBA) to build more trails through sponsorships and employee trail-building events. Additionally, the company will help support Colorado's NICA-based high school mountain bike league, with volunteer efforts to help run races and train employee coaches, QBP stated.
