Heilind Electronics opened a new distribution center in Mentor, Ohio, just a short distance from the Highland Heights distribution center it’s intended to replace. The new state-of-the-art distribution facility spans 180,000 square feet and includes more shelf space, a larger carrier service delivery area, a conveyor belt system extending across 5,450 linear feet, and room for future expansion to accommodate the company’s growing inventory, which includes items from more than 150 manufacturers. The new distribution center also boasts an array of advanced features, including a paperless picking system, automated in-line scale and dimensioner, and automated invoicing, and is equipped with redundant power and datacom systems to enhance uptime. Heilind is hosting an open house and tech fair at the new facility on September 18, featuring tours and representatives from more than 30 electronic component manufacturers.
