Cambro Manufacturing opened a brand new 433,537 square foot distribution center in Huntington Beach, Calif. to increase efficiency and improve service. Previously located in City of Industry, the new Delta facility is located a mere 700 feet away from Cambro’s Skylab headquarters. The new location will cut down on unnecessary travel time and decrease gas emissions.
The Delta facility is designed with 48 receiving doors on one side and 48 shipping doors on the other to create an efficient flow of product. Truck drivers will use a contactless check-in that will accelerate the shipping process and allow us to accept and ship out packages to our customers faster than ever.
Each week, Delta receives an average of 200,000 cartons from our factories and ships out an average of 200,000 cartons to our customers. To handle the substantial product volume, we implemented a flow through operation where fast-moving products are warehoused up front for quicker access. Delta is designed with very narrow aisles to allow us to maximize our total warehouse storage capacity. Employees use a special wire guidance system that moves them into the aisle in order to quickly grab the products they need.
While its main purpose is the central warehouse for Cambro, activities at Delta include fulfilling sample requests, shipping replacement parts, and providing product to regional distribution facilities around the world. Additionally, we designed a 10,023 square foot tower to house our marketing department and a state of the art training center.
Our employees at Delta ensure the products the foodservice industry depends on makes it to them on time. Cambro is proud to support the American foodservice industry during times of triumph and adversity. Cambro has and always will be Made in the USA.
