DBCI, a manufacturer of self-storage roll-up doors and other building components, opened a new distribution center in Rocky Mount, N.C. The facility at 100 Red Iron Road encompasses more than 10,000 square feet of office and warehouse space. It will be shared with DBCI’s sister company, Ceco Building Systems. The move will benefit door installers and contract builders from northern North Carolina and southern Virginia, who can now order and pickup DBCI doors locally.
“We’ve historically done plenty of business throughout this region, but we also see an opportunity for growth,” said DBCI Vice President Larry Miller. “Our Rocky Mount distribution center means reduced freight costs and a convenient outlet for our regular customers. It also offers a solution for those who want to buy DBCI products but were previously hampered by issues of time or place.”
The new distribution center will stock the complete line of DBCI commercial and self-storage steel roll-up doors in standard and wind-rated versions. The company’s plans to add delivery service will be dictated by demand.
A full-time, three-member team will oversee daily operations, monitor inventory and fill orders. Randall Wiggins, a Rocky Mount resident and industry veteran with more than 40 years of experience in metal buildings and building components, is the new plant manager. Most recently, he was the plant manager at Ceco.
DBCI designs and manufactures commercial-grade, steel roll-up doors as well as frames and panels, wall systems, interior-hallway systems, mezzanine systems, portable-storage units, and wine lockers. Headquartered in Douglasville, Ga., the company also operates production facilities in Chandler, Ariz., and Houston, and manages distributor relationships in Knoxville, Tenn., and San Leandro, Calif.
