Century Railing’s new warehouse in Bethel Heights, Arkansas is now open for business. With more than 10,000 square feet, the warehouse’s 3 tiered racking is currently stocked with products and expecting more to arrive soon. This facility can hold over 1 million dollars’ worth of inventory and will enable Century Railings to service their expansion needs in the U.S. market. As their Manufactures’ Representative, Brent Gwatney with BG Enterprises will establish partnerships for Century Railings to supply their products across the United States.
Ken Scott from CenDek Railings Group reflected on what motivated Century Railings to open a new warehouse in the USA.
“After a few years in the trenches of the U.S. market, talking with companies that are having success, and speaking with consultants, we came to the same conclusion each time. We need a warehouse location in the USA to service our expansion needs.”
Arkansas is an ideal warehouse location as it allows all regions in the USA to be easily serviced via truck or rail. Because it is centrally located, an Arkansas warehouse will also mitigate freight costs. Many challenges for Century Railings will be eliminated by having a fulfillment site with stock in the United States. The warehouse in Bethel Heights will allow shipping container transportation to move products in and out of the facility. This method of direct shipping gives Century Railings an advantage to provide a quick supply turnaround.
Brent Gwatney will act as the manufacturers’ representative for Century Railings throughout this expansion. Based in Arkansas, Brent has many years of experience in the building supply industry. With his vast knowledge and strong relationships across the country, Brent is a huge asset to Century Railings. Brent is passionate about his work. He loves the thrill of the chase and landing a new customer. With his company, BG Enterprises, Brent will create solid partnerships across the United States. Each year, Brent will grow Century Railings footprint in the market by establishing a solid supply chain of handrails.
With this expansion, Century currently has two employees managing the Arkansas warehouse and is planning for an additional hire in the Spring. Over the years, BG Enterprises will also continue to grow its sales force.
