Del Papa announces first delivery from new distribution center.


Del Papa Distributing Company has announced that the company has officially moved its Galveston-based logistical operations to the newly-constructed Coastal Distribution Center in Texas City, TX. The first shipment of beer went out for delivery on Monday, April 16 at 5 a.m. The rest of the company's Galveston operations, including human resources, administration, point-of-sale and graphic design will shift over in early May 2012. "The first delivery was the most important order of business for Del Papa, and now we look forward to completing the rest of the move," said Mike McAfee, vice president of marketing for Del Papa. "The new facility will greatly increase the overall efficiency and productivity of the company and allow us to better serve our retailers."

Del Papa Distributing Company began construction on the new Coastal Distribution Center in May 2011. The new building, which will take the place of the company's current Galveston location, is located on 26.5 acres of land along Interstate 45 North at Century Boulevard in Texas City.

"The mainland location will put the company in a better position to meet long-term growth objectives," Mr. McAfee reported. "The new distribution center will also bring all of the company's operations under one roof and increase efficiency and productivity. The facility includes a 126,011 square-foot climate-controlled warehouse featuring 24 docks in a cross-docking configuration for efficient product flow. In addition, the new location includes 66,000 square feet allocated for future expansion."
