Hubert, a worldwide leader in foodservice and food retail product solutions, officially announces the opening of its U.S. western region distribution center in Reno, Nevada. The company initially plans to hire 15 to 20 full-time employees at this location.
Hubert’s new distribution center is the company’s second U.S. location with its first being located in Harrison, Ohio. The Reno distribution center will provide full-service distribution services for the western 13 states in one to two days. Most orders are shipped the same day and include one-day service to California.
“Reno provides the best combination of logistics infrastructure, service time, and cost to best serve the western marketplace and improve our penetration in this region,” said Rodger Reed, General Manager, Hubert Company, Western Distribution Center. “Our western customers will benefit greatly from lower transportation costs and reduced lead time from a single distribution point coming out of Reno, Nevada.”
“It is exciting to see companies like Hubert choose Reno for their West Coast Distribution. It is these smaller, growing companies like Hubert that make up the backbone of our economy and add to our growing economic diversification,” said Mike Kazmierski, CEO of EDAWN. “The strategic location of Reno-Sparks is unique and international companies, like Hubert, are finding that in addition to being a great location, Reno-Sparks is also a great place for business,” Kazmierski said.
Dan Buhrman of CBRE represented Hubert and Gordon Zack CBRE represented the landlord in the lease transaction of the 145,000sf facility located at 14525 Industry Circle in Reno, Nevada. Hubert is expected to spend an estimated $2.7 million to deploy the new distribution center. Joel Grace from the Economic Development Authority of Western Nevada (EDAWN) was also instrumental in assisting Hubert to evaluate their options and was a valuable resource.
The Economic Development Authority of Western Nevada is a private/ public partnership established in 1983 committed to recruiting, expanding and supporting newly forming quality companies that bring jobs to the region and have a positive impact on the quality of life in Greater Reno-Sparks-Tahoe.
