I love to watch as our clients grow and expand, particularly those we have worked with for several years.
Sheetz Inc., the popular gas station and convenience store chain, announced last year its plans to build a manufacturing and distribution center in Burlington, North Carolina. They officially broke ground last summer.
In spring 2011, Tompkins conducted research for building the new site, as well as the network analysis and strategic campus design. We are proud to have been a part of this important new facility, and we are excited for the start-up and go-live phases of the operation. Learn about some of our past work with Sheetz here.
This recent Times-News article describes the campus design, which will include a Sheetz Bros. Kitchen bakery, distribution and warehousing center for the Sheetz distribution fleet, and offer space for various other corporate support departments. Supplies are currently transported from Sheetz's sole distribution center located in Pennsylvania, but the new facility will allow sustained growth while continuing to ensure delivery of fresh goods at a lower cost.
The $32.8 million facility is expected to be occupied by August 2015, according to reports. Congratulations, Sheetz!
