WAC Lighting Opens Warehouse in Texas

WAC Lighting has added its fourth warehouse and distribution center in the country to provide even greater availability and faster delivery to its customers. The lighting manufacturer held a Grand Opening ribbon-cutting ceremony  for its new 140,000-sq.-ft. facility last week in Cedar Hill, Texas.

Attending the event from WAC were Shelley Wald, Co-CEO, Dirk Wald, Co-CEO, Jenifer Walsh, CMO, Michael Macaluso, Director of Operations, and Brian Davis, Warehouse Manager. 

In addition, the city of Cedar Hill showed its support. Among the local officials who attended were: Stephen Mason, Cedar Hill Mayor; Henry Florsheim, Director of Economic Development; Alan Sims, Cedar Hill Mayor Pro Tem; Chad McCurdy, Cedar Hill Councilman; Clifford Shaw, Cedar Hill Councilman; Daniel Haydin, Cedar Hill Councilman; Greg Porter, Cedar Hill City Manager; Louis Castillo, Specialist Economic Development; Naika Malveaux, Marketing Manager; and Stephanie Starrett, Chair of the Chamber of Commerce.

The new Cedar Hill warehouse sits between WAC’s warehouses in California and Georgia, both of which run at 100% capacity. The Texas warehouse will relieve the stress and provide capacity for continued growth. In addition, it gives WAC a more central location to service customers, especially Quick-Turn requirements for Same Day/Next Day shipping while servicing all brands including: WAC, Modern Forms Luminaires + Smart Fans, Schonbek Ltd., WAC-STRUT, and WAC Landscape Lighting.

According to Henry Florsheim, “Cedar Hill is proud to welcome WAC Lighting to our family. We’re excited that they chose to locate here, and we look forward to helping make sure this facility is successful for many years to come.”
