Packaging Distribution Resources (PDR), a New Jersey-based warehouse and distribution company that serves the direct response, cosmetics, personal care and consumer packaged goods industries, announces the opening of a new West Coast operation, as well as a preferred vendor partnership with Indie Beauty Expo (IBE). IBE helps independent beauty brands showcase their products, heighten exposure and grow sales and distribution.
PDR’s new warehouse, located in Commerce, Calif, is 22,000 sq ft and can expand to 125,000 sq ft. This location allows PDR to provide clients on the West Coast with its core services: warehouse management/storage; inventory control including shipping, receiving and return processing; distribution (regional, national and international fulfillment solutions); and back-office solutions such as accounting and supply chain management services.
“Having operations on both coasts will help us take our concierge services to the next level, aiding our customers with even greater speed to market and product availability. Our client-partners’ e-commerce inventories will now be stored closer to their retail and e-tail customers for more efficient delivery times and cost-effective logistics,” said Jack Sandbach, founder and CEO of PDR. “With this expansion, PDR also becomes an asset to international brands that want to launch in the U.S.”
One of PDR’s specialty services for the beauty industry is assembly of product packaging such as holiday promotion gift sets, display kits, and product launch preparation. As a result, the company will provide pick and pack warehouse services to Indie Beauty Expo (IBE) utilizing its large production areas for kit assembly.
“Our new partnership with IBE is a great opportunity as indie brands are among the fastest growing product categories and are incredibly popular with retailers as well as consumers,” said James Kaniuk, PDR’s director of sales. “Our expertise of assembly and kitting is a perfect solution for up-and-coming beauty brands; helping them solve an array of challenges so they can flourish and achieve the entrepreneurial dream is our focus and the value we bring.”
