Moen Breaks Ground on Las
Vegas Distribution Center.
Moen has broken
ground on a new Distribution Center in Las Vegas. The Prologis
Speedway North Distribution Center 1, a facility with over 680,000
square feet, is set to open in 2024 and will sit on 74.6 acres of
land. The distribution center is being built in partnership with the
building owner, Prologis, Inc., and construction is being led by
Layton Construction Company, LLC. The new DC is expected to provide
ample capacity for serving the Western United States and enhancing
Moen’s supply chain.

“We’re excited to be working closely with Prologis,
Layton, and the City of North Las Vegas to create a facility that
will have a positive impact on our business, our customers and the
surrounding areas,” said Ron Wilson, executive vice president and
chief supply chain officer. “Not only will the construction of the
facility help bring jobs to the area, but by investing in automation
and a larger building, we will also have the potential to nearly
double the number of Moen jobs available in Las Vegas by 2030.”"

The state-of-the-art facility will allow Moen to stock more
inventory on the West Coast to reduce transportation costs
and lead times. It will also feature new warehouse
management systems and automated elements that will improve
efficiency and overall service for customers.
While Moen already has robust recycling programs in place at
all facilities, the new distribution center will include
even more features to increase sustainability on site, such
as an automated box sizer that will more accurately create
the right size of boxes to reduce the amount of cardboard
being used and help eliminate the use of plastic air
Construction on the distribution center is estimated to be
completed in December 2023, with Moen taking over the
facility in 2024.
As the #1 faucet brand in North America, Moen offers a diverse
selection of thoughtfully designed kitchen and bath faucets,
showerheads, accessories, bath safety products, garbage disposals
and kitchen sinks for residential and commercial applications each
delivering the best possible combination of meaningful innovation,
useful features, and lasting value.
