NFI, a leading supply chain company headquartered in Cherry Hill, New Jersey, is pleased to announce an expanding partnership with Ocean Spray in the Lehigh Valley, PA.
NFI and Ocean Spray are continuing a successful partnership of 13 years with a new distribution operation in the Lehigh Valley, PA. The 980,000 sq. ft. distribution center currently under construction will fulfill needs for Ocean Spray’s local just-in-time manufacturing facility. Construction broke ground on the distribution center in July of 2013 and completion of the project is scheduled for the summer of 2014.
Edward Poloway, Ocean Spray Operations & Supply Chain Director, explains: “The volume that will be executed from this location will represent 40% of Ocean Spray’s total North American volume. It will be the largest distribution center operation we have anywhere in the world.”
NFI is proud to be supporting Ocean Spray’s specific needs in a space that allows flexibility based on necessity and is located in an area of economic growth and development. “We love the Lehigh Valley,” says NFI President and Vice Chairman Jeff Brown, “its logistics setup in reference to the northeast and New York City is fantastic.”
