Home improvement retailer Lowe's Companies, Inc. announced plans to build a new state-of-the-art flatbed distribution center in Westfield, MA, U.S. The facility will supply products to approximately 126 Lowe's retail stores in the Northeast U.S., including all of Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, and parts of New York.

Construction will begin immediately on the 116-acre site and will cost between U.S. $12 to $16 million.

The flatbed center will receive rail and truck shipments of large, bulky products from suppliers. Products will then be quickly loaded as customized orders on flatbed trucks bound for Lowe's stores in the Northeast.

"Our flatbed centers, combined with the company's network of regional distribution centers, give Lowe's a distribution infrastructure that is unparalleled in the home improvement industry," Mike Mabry, senior vice president of Lowe's Distribution, said.

Lowe's currently operates 11 regional flatbed centers throughout the U.S. and plans to open three additional flatbed facilities in 2005.
