Weber Logistics acquired Pacific Coast Warehouse Company (PCWC), adding over 600,000 square feet of prime Southern California warehousing space to its network.
“In the last two years, Weber has doubled its footprint as we seek to rapidly scale our omni-channel distribution network,” says CEO, Bob Lilja. “The acquisition of PCWC brings us strong talent and added infrastructure to continue on that path. We’re combining two very complementary organizations to create a stronger logistics solution for customers, while retaining the core customer-centric philosophies shared by both companies.”
From PR Newswire:
- PCWC will be rebranded as Weber Logistics. All current PCWC employees will become Weber employees by May 1.
- This acquisition also adds PCWC facilities in Ontario, Calif., and Chino, Calif. Weber now operates over 4 million square feet of distribution center space in California across 15 facilities.
- The acquisition marries two companies with similar histories and business strategies. Like Weber, PCWC was founded in Los Angeles in the 1920s and has built a strong reputation for providing quality logistics services to customers in the food, consumer goods, wine and spirits and chemical industries.
- The acquisition also added two large Inland Empire (Southern California) distribution centers totaling 1.1 million square feet; a new high-capacity port terminal in Downey, Calif., to host Weber’s Southern California drayage fleet operations and direct the company’s fleet operations for all West Coast ports; and made significant investments in e-commerce fulfillment capabilities at multiple distribution centers – from automated print-and-apply solutions to high-velocity conveyor systems for parcel shipments.
