William B. Meyer is expanding operational capacity in their Windsor, CT location by 80,000 square feet. This expansion, begun in September 2012, comes two years after the Windsor location officially opened for business. Equipped with state-of-the-art technology like advanced climate control, space and fire-lock vaults, the expansion supports services across all seven business lines including storage, logistics, and records management.
Tom Gillon Sr., President of William B. Meyer, states that the decision to expand was strategic. “We are pleased with the reaction and the response of our clients. The initial building was a consolidation of several businesses located in the Hartford/Springfield area, and when we opened, the facility was operating at full capacity.” By expanding now, William B. Meyer secures the facility space and capacity to continue to effectively serve clients’ needs as they grow.
Smart business planning is at the heart of William B. Meyer’s mission, “to help our customers safely relocate, handle, and store their highly valued assets.” By anticipating clients’ needs before they have been identified, William B. Meyer offers the best possible service. Says Gillon, “The infrastructure provided by us is critical for the companies we serve. We are the hands and feet that make things happen. Our services allow clients to effectively follow their own missions, and to focus on better serving their own clients.”
MEYER Logistics, in particular, benefits from the expansion. Extra warehouse space permits the department to offer customized transportation and logistics solutions for national and international clients. MEYER Logistics services are robust enough to accommodate niche markets like: high-valued electronics, medical and telecommunications equipment, kiosks, and pharmaceutical needs – any business that has highly valued inventory that needs to move.
Using specialized warehouse management systems, MEYER Logistics oversees the delivery and storage of a client’s inventory. Always transparent and accountable, MEYER Logistics labels each product with a barcode upon intake. Clients can track, in real-time, the status of their delivery. For clients who desire white-glove service, MEYER Logistics offers project management solutions. A dedicated professional goes onsite to manage and coordinate distribution, logistics and installation of a delivered product. Every precaution is taken to ensure a client’s trust.
The additional warehouse space at the Windsor facility is needed to accommodate the expected business growth from MEYER Logistics. Jim Brown, Vice President of Business Development at William B. Meyer says, “We should continue growing because of the accountability and reliability provided to our customers. They entrust us with the last mile of their project and we ensure a damage-free delivery. By doing our job right, we help them succeed and protect their reputation.”
