SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/28/14 -- Core-Mark Holding Company, Inc. (NASDAQ: CORE) announced today it will be opening a new distribution center in Glenwillow, Ohio.
"As we expand our customer base in the Midwest region, it is important we have an effective distribution network to service these customers economically and efficiently," said Thomas B. Perkins, Core-Mark Chief Executive Officer. "We look forward to the benefits of having a division in this area of the country to service many of our existing customers and support our continued market expansion."
From this new division, the company expects to service approximately 1,000 new stores and to transfer an additional 1,000 existing stores from other Core-Mark divisions by the end of the first quarter in 2015. This transfer is expected to result in transportation cost savings as the company reduces mileage to service customers in the region. Start-up costs are expected to be approximately $1.5 million, and capital expenditures are expected to be approximately $16 million. As a result of this new distribution center, Core-Mark's management now expects total capital expenditures to be approximately $50 million for 2014.
Core-Mark is one of the largest marketers of fresh and broad-line supply solutions to the convenience retail industry in North America. Founded in 1888, Core-Mark offers a full range of products, marketing programs and technology solutions to over 30,000 customer locations in the U.S. and Canada through 28 distribution centers (excluding two distribution facilities the Company operates as a third party logistics provider).
