MaxLite announces that it plans to open a new approximately 100,000-square-foot state-of-the-art distribution center in March 2022. The new facility in Greenwood, Indiana, just outside of Indianapolis, will be part of MaxLite’s growing network with additional distribution centers in northern New Jersey and Anaheim, California.

MaxLite’s new distribution center will be located less than two miles from its existing facility in the same city. The new distribution center will maximize 36’ of vertical height through the use of pallet racks that allow an additional level of storage. The new facility will help to serve customers in the central region of the United States, enabling delivery to customers in this region in 1-2 business days. The facility will also act as the central hub to store some of the secondary products and solutions in MaxLite’s portfolio. It will help MaxLite dramatically improve delivery times and lower shipping costs from coast to coast; it will allow delivery of product to the lower 48 states in three days or less.

Known for its green initiatives as a five-time recipient of the prestigious ENERGY STAR® Partner of the Year Award for its industry leadership, MaxLite will outfit the new facility with energy-efficient BLHE3 High Bays powered by c-Max Network controls. In addition to the energy savings realized from the LED High Bays, the wireless controls will further reduce energy consumption by allowing for individual/group control using motion detection to only light the areas of the facility where activity is happening while still providing safe lighting levels for associates in the warehouse.

“One of our strategic initiatives, which is ingrained in everything we do, is making MaxLite easy to do business with,” said Spencer Bolgard, president & CEO at MaxLite. “To further support this initiative, we are investing millions of dollars in a new state-of-the-art distribution center in Indianapolis, which will double the size of our distribution center located less than two miles away. We chose to stay in the Indianapolis area because of our existing great team there, a team in which we will add additional talented members by creating new jobs and supporting the local economy. Additionally, since we opened our current facility in the area, we have found it ideal to meet our customers’, distributors’ and reps’ service needs, quickly and efficiently, which is especially important in today’s climate.”
