POMPANO BEACH, Fla. – Land ’N ’Sea has opened a new distribution center in Houston, Texas, its parent company, Brunswick Corp., reported in a statement today. The new 30,000-square-foot facility represents Land ’N’ Sea’s 14th location in North America.
The company said the distribution center provides dealers access to Land ‘N’ Sea’s selection of general marine supplies, boatyard items and Mercury and Quicksilver products.
Through a separate Engine Power Center agreement, Land ‘N’ Sea will also distribute new and rebuilt MerCruiser engines and drives from this warehouse, reported Brunswick.
During the past year, the company has recruited a sales team consisting of six industry veterans with a combined history of over 84 years of local service covering Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas and Southern Oklahoma, it said.
Land ‘N’ Sea will use a fleet of company-owned trucks and contracted freight carriers for delivering product within its territory.
“By bringing this new facility on-line, Land ‘N’ Sea is one step closer to fulfilling our goal of a coast-to-coast distribution network that delivers the highest level of service in the industry to all dealers throughout the U.S. and Canada,” explained Randy Gray, vice president and general manager of the Brunswick Boat Group Parts and Accessories business. “Our vision is to take one customer order, fill it completely, send one invoice , and deliver any combination of products on a same-day or next-day basis.”
Land ‘N’ Sea said it currently offers same-day or next-day delivery to roughly 70 percent of the marine dealers in the United States.
