The flooring company’s newly-built, 250,000 square foot center will add 50 new staff as it supports the optimized distribution of high-value, coastal-inspired home products across the nation.
CALI has officially opened its first custom-built distribution center in Summerville, SC. The new center is the first of four being planned by the omni-channel flooring and decking company and launched with a grand opening ribbon-cutting ceremony on Thursday Nov. 3, 2022. Guests were treated to tours of the new facility and speeches from local councilmembers and port officials.
The Summerville center now serves CALI customers along the eastern seaboard, enabling faster deliveries and more reliable service of high-quality flooring, composite decking, and other home design collections.
“I am excited about what this DC will add to the customer experience,” says CALI COO, Eugene Garcia. “The 250,000 square feet facility supports a multishift operation with product sampling, customer service, and a logistics team. Our goal is to provide a world-class service experience.”
When fully staffed, the center will employ about 50 new CALI team members, primarily recruited from the local community. The company’s acclaimed employee culture will be extended to the Summerville team, along with competitive salaries and benefits.
“We are thrilled to launch this distribution center along with a new relationship with the community of Summerville,” says CALI president, Doug Jackson. “CALI has found success by prioritizing the well-being of not just our customers and partners, but our employees as well. We look forward to supporting our new South Carolina team so that we may all grow and accomplish great things together.”
