Freund Container & Supply, a Lisle, Ill.-based supplier of packaging and industrial supplies, opened a 45,000-square-foot warehouse in Atlanta to provide faster deliveries to customers throughout the Southeastern United States.
The Atlanta warehouse is said to reduce freight costs 50-60% compared to goods shipped from Freund’s Illinois site and shorten delivery time to two days or less for most customers in the region.
The new facility, situated in Southmeadow Industrial Park, stocks an extensive selection of plastic, glass and metal containers, hard-to-find imported glass containers, high-performance packaging ranging from leak-proof and primary-rated UN containers and a wide range of industrial supplies such as pails, drums and boxes for MRO applications.
“The Southeast is a growing market for packaging, and one that is underserved by stocking container distributors that can ship off-the-shelf solutions on a same-day basis,” says Chris Hiller, general manager. “With Atlanta as our new hub in the region, we can now meet that need, decrease transit time and costs and help customers keep their businesses on track—whether getting containers and closures to their filler or pails, brooms and safety glasses to their maintenance crews. This new warehouse is another example of how we’re investing to provide the best products and service to our customers.”
Freund Container & Supply is a division of Berlin Packaging.
