Rugby Expands Distribution Operations in the Inland Empire
Rugby Architectural Building Products announces the grand opening of its distribution facility in Eastvale, California
Eastvale, CA – Rugby Architectural Building Products has announced the official grand opening of its distribution facility in Eastvale, California. Completed in Q1 2018, the brand-new, Class A warehouse/distribution building is located at 6330 Providence Way in the highly desirable Inland Empire West submarket.
The 51,938-square-foot building is situated on 2.46 acres and has state-of-the-art features including LED warehouse lighting, ESFR sprinkler systems, 30’ minimum warehouse clearance with dock-high and grade level loading, secured truck courts and ample car parking. The location has strong regional transportation links and proximity to a large population base, ideal for Rugby, which has continued to expand in the Greater Los Angeles/Inland Empire markets to fulfill delivery needs and customer demand.
The new Rugby distribution facility coincides with the retirement of Dick Brice, a 37-year veteran of the company. Mr. Brice closed out the old facility and ushered in the new facility with a new general manager and industry veteran at the helm, Ty Hindman. “We are pleased to announce our move to our new Eastvale, CA location. We feel this new location is exactly what we need to move forward with a more efficient buying experience. We are ramping up our will call service and we feel we are in a better location closer to major Freeway access. Feel free to call or stop by and experience the new Southern California Rugby,” said Ty Hindman general manager of Rugby Eastvale.
The building is part of The Campus, a master-planned industrial project with campus-style workplace design, contemporary landscaping and walking trails and future retail amenities. Strategically located in Inland Empire West with proximity to the I-15, SR-60, SR-71 and SR-91 Freeways.
