Spinnaker Expanding Value-Added Warehouse Operations To Meet Customer Demand

DENVER, Dec. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --  Spinnaker, a global leader in supply chain consulting and supply chain execution services, has announced the expansion of its North American operations with a new facility in Columbus, Ohio. This center provides customers another strategically located hub for both forward and reverse logistics operations, while supporting continued growth of Spinnaker Returns Solutions.

The new 55,000 sq. ft Value-Added Warehousing and Distribution (VAWD) center will open in January of 2013.  It deepens Spinnaker's strategic focus and capabilities in managing returns center operations for its customers.   The new center is being designed to enable companies to utilize the latest technology and processes in supporting integrated returns solutions, a key component of Spinnaker's VAWD capabilities.  As a multi-year Green Supply Chain award winner, Spinnaker will leverage green building practices not just for their facility, but for their customers' own supply chain practices, helping them achieve critical sustainability and compliance goals.

"We are pleased to be expanding our supply chain operations to meet growing customer demand in this geographic region," said Jeff Jorgensen, Vice President of Supply Chain Execution for Spinnaker.  "The Columbus market is a thriving distribution and logistics hub that is within one day's drive of more than 40% of all US manufacturing capacity.  Many companies with operations in Ohio could benefit from having an experienced supply chain service provider to help transform their reverse supply chains into a true competitive advantage."

The Columbus center gives Spinnaker a key Midwest presence beyond its current six operating locations spread throughout the Northeast and Mid-South. This enables the firm to meet growing demand from their clients that include Fortune 500 companies in high-tech & telecommunications, to global leaders in industrial auto engine manufacturing.

"Our clients trust Spinnaker's intelligent and flexible returns solutions to not only improve their returns operations, but also to streamline their entire supply chain," said Jorgensen. "We look forward to putting our expertise to work in Columbus to help clients reduce costs, grow profits and meet their sustainability goals, faster than they thought possible."
