GONZALES, La. - Grainger announced plans to expand and enhance its operations throughout the Gulf region to better serve customers. As part of this expansion, the company will revamp its distribution network by opening four new facilities, relocating one other, and expanding and enhancing three existing facilities throughout the Gulf area.

The announcement was made during the grand opening celebration of Grainger’s new branch in Gonzales, La.

“We’re doing exactly what our customers asked us to do,” said Shaun Holladay, district branch services manager, Grainger. “Our customers told us they wanted more of the products they need to maintain, repair, and operate their facilities, positioned closer to them, and we listened. For our business customers, including contractors, time is money and it’s our job to ensure they get the products they need, when and where they need them, so they can get back on the job.”

With its expansion, the company plans to increase its local workforce by approximately 35 percent and will increase the size of its distribution network in the area by about 80 percent to meet the needs of local customers. Additionally, the amount of locally tailored inventory will increase by approximately 56 percent.
