MONTVALE, NJ - Benjamin Moore & Co. announced plans to open a new distribution center in Oakland, CA, to meet the needs of its growing business. Scheduled to open by early 2015, the Oakland facility will support the distribution of all Benjamin Moore & Co. products and eventually serve as the key distribution center for the company's growing network of Asia-Pacific retailers and distributors.

"Benjamin Moore & Co.'s business continues to grow, and with it the demand for increased distribution and fulfillment operations to deliver our best-in-class products to our network of independent retailers and customers," said Mike Searles, President and CEO of Benjamin Moore & Co. "We're committed to being the best partner for our retailers in every way, and with this new distribution center customers can expect to see many new Benjamin Moore stores opening."

The newly constructed Goodman Logistics Center in Oakland provides 374,725 square feet of industrial warehouse space and is the largest freestanding industrial facility built in the Greater Oakland area in the past two decades. The new facility is to be leased to Benjamin Moore & Co. by Goodman Birtcher North America on behalf of the owner, Goodman North American Partnership, and is the first-ever Silver LEED-certified site for Benjamin Moore & Co.

Benjamin Moore & Co. also has plans to expand operations in the Southeast later this year and Mid-Atlantic regions in 2015.
