We're Expanding ... Again!
Since being formed in May 2004, AmeriLux International has expanded its current facility twice. In 2009, we expanded the distribution center and operations space, nearly doubling the physical plant size. In 2012, we completed another expansion to the distribution center; bringing the total square footage of operations space to just under 60,000 square feet.
This time, AmeriLux is adding an additional building. The 30,592 square foot facility is being built on the vacant property adjacent to our East De Pere location and will house our extensive inventory of multiwall polycarbonate products. The new building will have 161 unique storage locations; providing us the opportunity to improve our lot control, minimize double handling of material, and allow for a true FIFO inventory system.
Progress photos and updates will be added regularly, so check back often!
