Preciball USA Announces Grand Opening of New Distribution Center in Pooler

By | Local NewsWIRE

(SAVANNAH, GA) Preciball USA announces it will host the grand opening of its almost 40,000 square ft, North American distribution center. A grand opening reception will be held at the facility on Tuesday, April 11, at 11 a.m. in the Westside Business Park on U.S. Hwy. 80 in Pooler, just west of Savannah.

Preciball, the world leader in the manufacture and supply of industrial ball bearing products, engaged the Dewitt Tilton Group of Savannah to build the new facility near the Port of Savannah at the Westside Business Park. After the ribbon cutting, guests will be invited to tour the new facility.

“We are excited about showing off our new building, which was thoughtfully designed and constructed with energy efficient features and effective land use,” said Don Peak, general manager for Preciball USA. “It has a number of unique aspects in that it provides this flexible space and is adaptable to Preciball’s rapidly expanding growth.”

Chris Tilton, president and co-founder of Dewitt Tilton Group, said his firm is honored that Preciball selected them for the project.

“One of the more interesting aspects of this project was placing the building on a very challenging site, but we were able to come up with a design that fits well in the space and works well with high-volume truck traffic,” Tilton said. “The exposed ductwork and spiral staircase leading to the second floor really gives the space a feel of a New York City industrial loft. We also designed the building with translucent paneling throughout to optimize natural lighting.”

The structure itself incorporates office suites and warehouse space. Preciball will occupy about half of the facility; the remaining space has already been leased by two other businesses. Key features include the building’s high-efficiency warehouse lighting and HVAC equipment, as well as dock-high loading doors and dock levelers. The warehouse space has wide clear-span truss construction.

From its Savannah distribution center, Preciball provides products manufactured all over the world to customers in the U.S., Canada and Mexico, which made the company’s proximity to Savannah-Hilton Head International Airport, the Georgia Port, interstates I-95 and I-16 a key factor in the company’s decision to select the Pooler site.

For more information on the grand opening or the building, call (912) 777-3404 or visit http://www.dewitttiltongroup.com/.
