NFI Strengthens Spin Master’s Supply Chain Solutions with New Olive Branch, Mississippi Facility

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Camden, N.J., May 9, 2024 – NFI, a leading supply chain solutions provider, recently opened their new Olive Branch, Mississippi facility, the latest Central US home to Spin Master products. 

Spin Master is a leading global children’s entertainment company that creates exceptional play experiences through its three creative centers: toys, entertainment, and digital games. Since its founding in 1994, Spin Master has grown from a small toy manufacturer to become the home of iconic brands, such as Rubik’s Cube, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary, the powerhouse preschool franchise, Paw Patrol, and the award-winning Toca Boca digital game.

“This location is ideal and allows us to better service our retail customers,” said Steve Radewych, SVP of Supply Chain Operations at Spin Master. “We’re happy to continue working with NFI to strategically position our supply chain as business continues to grow.”

NFI and Spin Master began their partnership in 2018 when Spin Master was looking to expand its supply chain throughout the Northeast. That same year, Spin Master acquired another company, which increased their need for faster solutions. NFI’s distribution team was able to help establish this East Coast presence in their Kutztown, Pennsylvania campus. As Spin Master’s business continued to evolve and expand, requiring additional flex space within the campus and the larger Lehigh Valley network, NFI was able to accommodate this overflow need.

In early 2024, the relationship expanded further with the addition of an ideally located warehouse in Olive Branch, Mississippi, situated in the heart of the Central United States. While continuing to fulfill Spin Master’s distribution needs, NFI’s port services capabilities will also be utilized for drayage services inbound to the new distribution center. Additionally, NFI’s ILS team will manage the transfer of products from California to the new facility in 2024 and to Pennsylvania in 2025.

“We’re really excited to expand our relationship with Spin Master for at least the next five years and utilize other services for this very strategic customer,” said Bill Mahoney, CCO and EVP at NFI. “We’ve celebrated five years of a great partnership and look forward to growing together.”

NFI is committed to tailoring solutions for each unique customer and growing alongside the businesses it partners with. With expert knowledge, technology, scale, and dedicated people, NFI offers innovative, integrated, and customized solutions that span customer’s entire supply chain.
