The facility will stock a wide selection of Garnica’s most popular products in standard and jumbo sizes as well as a variety of thickness options.

Our lead times will now be less than one week for deliveries west of Mississippi, the effects of which will be felt at all levels of the supply chain from distributors to customers.”

In addition to Garnica’s new warehouse, the company is also appointing two new senior leaders to its North American team: Thomas Tornillo, Product Management & Claims Manager, and Jack Naish, Inside Sales Manager. Together, they will work to enhance the customer experience and ensure clients receive tailored support through information and resources catered to their unique needs.
