Phillips Pet Food & Supplies will open a full-service distribution center in the Dallas Fort-Worth area.
The new center will allow Phillips to improve its distribution services to Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Arkansas and Mississippi and give independent retailers in those markets better access to Phillips’ products. This new facility will be the company’s sixteenth distribution center.
Independent retailers in these states will now be able to order a full range of Phillips’ supplies and consumables with added convenience. In addition, Phillips’s award-winning independent marketing toolbox, the iT Kit will be available to these retailers. The iT Kit is a toolbox that is filled with affordable, integrated business solutions that allows retailers to market and compete like a big box supplier.
“We are very excited to become a part of the Dallas Fort-Worth community and to vastly expand and improve our product reach in the Southwest market,” said Blaine Phillips, chief executive officer of Phillips Pet Food & Supplies. “In a rapidly-changing industry, our goal is to provide customers with best-in-class products and services that will contribute to the growth and profitability of their businesses. We believe this new facility will help us to meet the increased demand we’ve seen in this important region and allow our company to continue to embrace the independent retailer’s needs.”
The company anticipates that the new facility will be operational in September 2015 and will create new job opportunities in the local community
