CA: ALOM Expands Fremont HQ, Adding 110,000 Sq. Ft. Capacity in Fremont
17 Sep, 2018
ALOM, a global leader in supply chain management, has announced the addition of 110,000 square feet of state-of-the-art production, fulfillment and inventory management capacity at its Fremont, CA headquarters location. At a ceremony, ALOM President and CEO Hannah Kain officially cut the ribbon opening the new facility, nearly doubling the company’s Fremont footprint, to serve a growing customer base with added capacity and rapidly scalable order processing technology.
During her address, Ms. Kain stated, “Today is a day of gratitude. I am grateful for our customers who are making our continued growth and expansion possible. I am grateful for our suppliers and supporters. I am first and foremost grateful to our ALOM employees whose unwavering dedication to customer focus, quality and innovation is clearly a recipe for success. While also expanding globally, launching this new state-of-the-art production and fulfillment facility as part of our corporate headquarters in the Silicon Valley Innovation corridor provides proximity to emerging technology, added flexibility to meet the fast changing needs of our customer base, and even more capacity to service new customer programs.”
“With trade policies in so much flux, near-sourcing becomes a compelling proposition for many companies,” says Lisa Dolan, VP, Strategic Supply Chain. “Companies benefit from being close to the markets, both in terms of time and money. With our expanded capacity in the U.S., we continue to be the premier supply chain partner for corporations that value customer service and protecting their brand. The added capacity support and agility allows us to fulfill up to 41,000 orders per hour during peak time.”
ALOM employees, City of Fremont Mayor Lily Mei and City of Fremont Deputy Director of Economic Development Christina Briggs attended the ribbon cutting ceremony. Mayor Mei applauded ALOM for its success and for its long-term contributions to community organizations and the overall economic growth of the city. “ALOM is an outstanding corporate citizen who is continually innovating and contributing to the economic, employment, and philanthropic health of our City of Fremont. Thanks to the long-term vision of Hannah Kain, we also know that our community will benefit from ALOM’s commitment to environmental sustainability and clean manufacturing through advanced technology and process automation excellence,” she said.
With this move ALOM is expanding its service capacity in North America to meet growing demand and provide enhanced procurement, production, fulfillment, and freight management service levels for customers representing major global brands.
