xpedx Division Doubles Footprint In Metro Cincinnati

Press release from the issuing company

CINCINNATI, September 14, 2006- xpedx said it has a new Cincinnati regional hub-a new 250,000 square-foot Class A distribution/logistics center and offices. The facility, which employs 200, serves commercial, in-plant and specialty printers in Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana. The new facility replaces its former 120,000-square foot warehouse/office center in another part of the city. The Cincinnati Division, among the largest in the xpedx network by volume and size of operations, serves as the hub for xpedx operations in Dayton, Columbus, Indianapolis, Ft. Wayne, Louisville and Lexington. The facility also houses a fleet of 30 trucks. "We've more than doubled our square footage in Cincinnati and deepened the commitment to customers in our three-state region," said Chris Baum, division vice president and general manager. xpedx held an open house for customers today. The new facility allows xpedx customers in Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana to buy paper, graphics, packaging and facility supplies with one point of contact and a single invoice, saving them time and money. xpedx stocks more than 15,000 SKUs of products at the new facility. xpedx can also store inventory on behalf of certain customers, providing inventory management and logistics services to them. At its new Cincinnati location, xpedx also built a packaging supplies and equipment showroom, a converting-paper cutting operation and a sample studio for printers and designers to explore the wide variety of papers and printing substrates offered by the company. Baum said the company's graphics consultants help printers deploy new technology and identify cost-savings throughout their printing operation. xpedx also has a staff of packaging engineers based at the new facility. xpedx traces its Cincinnati roots to the former Chatfield Paper Co., one of the first businesses in the metro area. Chatfield Paper began operations in Cincinnati in 1833.
