LACEY, Wash., July 22, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Snow Joe®, and its complementary brands Sun Joe® and Aqua Joe® (http://snowjoe.com), a fast-growing, tech-driven, lawn and garden tools manufacturer, held its ribbon cutting ceremony today to announce the official opening of its new west coast distribution center located at Hawks Prairie Logistics Center in Lacey, WA.  Attendees at the ceremony included Councilmember, Malcolm Miller and Lacey South Sound Chamber President, Blake Knoblauch, along with the executive leadership team from Snow Joe and NorthPoint development, who was the developer on this project.  Attendees looked on as the ceremonial red ribbon was befittingly cut with a Sun Joe® cordless chain saw, a purposeful nod to the brand's innovative 24 Volt iON+ lithium-ion battery platform boasting over 100 compatible cordless tools for maximum power and performance around your home and garden.

"We are excited to officially announce the opening of our Snow Joe Lacey distribution center and, in the process, create over 150 family wage jobs in and around the Lacey community.  As our first distribution center on the west coast, this facility provides us tremendous supply chain efficiencies to continue to rapidly serve our ever-growing customer base," commented Paul Riley Jr., Chief Operating Officer at Snow Joe®.

Leased in October 2020, marking one of the largest Puget Sound industrial transactions of the year, the 575,918 sq ft Class A distribution center features over 50,000 pallet positions, robotic picking, and pallet-put-away automation, among other advanced warehouse management technologies to ensure faster delivery of Snow Joe® + Sun Joe® product to its customers. Not only will the opening of this west coast distribution center help Snow Joe® + Sun Joe® more efficiently distribute its easy-to-use, eco- conscious, and affordable lawn and garden tools, but it will also substantially grow the number of new jobs and opportunities for the residents of Lacey and surrounding regions.

Strategically located on Puget Sound, less than 30 miles from the Port of Tacoma with unparalleled access to the I-5 corridor, the major interstate spanning the length of the west coast, the Lacey distribution center provides several logistical advantages that Snow Joe intends to utilize to optimize its overall operational efficiencies. This distribution center will target all methods of fulfillment with a dedicated eCommerce area of the facility to ensure customer demand is promptly and reliably met. 

"Snow Joe represents fundamentals and culture that are compatible with the business practices we value," added Nathaniel Hagedorn, CEO and Founder of NorthPoint Development.  "Working closely with the Snow Joe leadership team is reflective of their responsibility to invest in their employees and implement environmentally friendly business practices, which undoubtedly sets Snow Joe apart from the competition. This development will provide long term sustainability for economic growth and exquisite value to the community." 

This newly-opened west coast distribution center marks the first major west-coast tent pole in Snow Joe's growing US footprint, which now spans coast to coast and includes a 144,875 sq ft facility in Salisbury, NC, a 271,000 sq ft Class A distribution center in Mahwah, NJ, a 120,000 sq ft eCommerce distribution center and a 33,000 sq ft building in Carlstadt, NJ, and a 84,720 sq ft dedicated customer care center in East Rutherford, NJ.
