CRL to Open Distribution Center Near Miami September 1
August 26, 2009

Los Angeles-based C.R. Laurence Co. Inc. (CRL) is opening a brand-new branch distribution facility on September 1. The new 55,000-square-foot facility is located in Sunrise, Fla., northwest of Miami and west of Ft. Lauderdale. This new branch serves all of South Florida, and will export orders to customers Puerto Rico, the Caribbean, Central and South America. The company’s Orlando branch will continue to serve Central and Northern Florida.

“This move brings our operations closer to our customers in southern Florida,” says Donald E. Friese, CRL’s chairman and chief executive officer. “The construction of this facility demonstrates our deep commitment to the Florida market, as well as to our export customers in the Caribbean and Latin America.”

The center will be able to accommodate a large inventory and its will-call department will allow customers to pick up orders on-site six days a week, according to a statement from CRL. In addition, the facility has a showroom display area where customers can see many of its newest products.

Jack Devine serves as branch manager of the new facility.
