RK Logistics Group opened a new 50,000-square-foot distribution center at its Fremont, Calif., headquarters.

The new warehouse, which will provide specialized inventory management, fulfillment and expedited plant delivery services for Silicon Valley companies, increases RK's network to 14 supply chain operations in the greater San Francisco Bay area, representing over 800,000 square feet of logistics and distribution capacity.

"This is a major investment for our company, and we're excited to be able to create nearly two dozen new jobs for the community," says Rod Kalune, chairman and CEO. "This advanced logistics facility has been purpose-designed to serve the strict quality and delivery requirements of the Bay Area's high-tech and automotive manufacturing industries, as well as medical device, high-value engineered building products and just-in-time retail replenishment.”

Services at the new facility include secured warehousing and inventory management for parts, components and finished goods; inventory optimization, order picking and fulfillment; and light manufacturing such as pre-assembly and kitting. The site will also support RK's specialized transportation programs for sequencing parts into lean production lines at automotive and technology equipment factories, as well as just-in-time deliveries to construction sites.
