SEKO Logistics has invested in expanding two of its locations in the northeastern United States as a result of the nearshoring of manufacturing in multiple sectors.
In Syracuse, SEKO has moved from its former 12,000 sq ft facility into a new 120,000 sq ft warehouse with a two-story office complex. The new location incorporates 13 dock doors to expedite collections and deliveries as well as 40 ft high ceilings to accommodate high racking systems. Other features of the site include a Foreign Trade Zone and warehouse management capabilities as well as cold storage facilities. The building houses 10,000 sq ft of cold storage in a 17 ft high, FDA-compliant temperature-controlled environment, intended for pharmaceuticals, food and beverages.
In Pittsburgh, SEKO has relocated into a new 30,000 sq ft facility from its former 10,000 sq ft premises. The move will specifically enable SEKO to satisfy the needs of customers that require omnichannel fulfillment within an environment that provides ISO13485 quality management certification for medical devices or US Food & Drug Administration (FDA) registration.
Rick Lee, Chief Operating Officer at SEKO Logistics, said: “While some logistics companies have pulled out of Western New York and Western Pennsylvania, we’re continuing to expand in these markets in order to give our customers the local customer service and account management they need. For SEKO, this is an important and growing region in North America and we’re working with customers in a wide range of industries, including the Medical, Automotive, Industrial, and Technology sectors. With the increase in re-shoring happening in Western New York and the resurgence of Pittsburgh as a Medical and High Tech hub, our expansion has also enabled us to offer new recruitment opportunities within both our customs brokerage and warehouse operations. As we have also demonstrated in other key US markets such as California, we are ready to invest in to provide the solutions our customers need and to prove we’re there to support them in the long-term.”
