for Hanwha Surfaces
ATLANTA, GA, October 7, 2015 -- Hanwha Surfaces, the American subsidiary of South Korean-based conglomerate Hanwha L&C | Surfaces, announced today the grand opening of their Direct Distribution Center in the United States. The 40,000 square feet Philadelphia, PA facility will feature a state-of-the-art showroom, office space, a training room and a full-service warehouse. Hanwha Surfaces hosted a ribbon cutting ceremony on Friday, October 2nd, 2015 with President J.K. Lee and members of their executive team.
“The brand new facility gives Hanwha Surfaces the opportunity to directly engage and reach loyal customers throughout the fabrication, architecture and design communities,” says Dan Boyd VP of Corporate Strategy. “This is also the beginning of an exciting period of growth for Hanwha including the opening of an additional distribution center in Atlanta, GA later this year.”
Hanwha has hired fifteen local employees to work throughout the warehouse, offices, training center and showroom. The showroom and training center will also feature full HanStone Quartz slabs so that designers, architects and fabricators can see the quaility and design of the products firsthand. This allows industry insiders to have unparalleled access to Hanwha Surface’s entire collection as never before.
The 1,500 sq. ft. showroom will serve as the centerpiece for HanStone Quartz and Hanex Solid Surfaces’ latest products and will include five kitchen vignettes featuring the latest trends in countertop design including HanStone Quartz’s recently launched marble-inspired Cascina and nature influenced Movimento Collections.
Each of the vignettes were fabricated by a valued local fabricator including a Tranquility display by Top Line Countertops of Hainsport, NJ; a Kindred display by Eastern Surfaces of Allentown, PA; Italian Waves display by Classic Rock Fabrication of Harrisburg, PA; Argil display by Prestige Marble & Granite of Emmaus, PA and a Serenity display by Cosmos Marble & Granite of Huntington Valley, PA. As Hanwha launches new collections these dream kitchens will be updated with the latest styles to bring HanStone Quartz and Hanex Solid Surfaces to life.
The opening of the Philadelphia facility signals a year of exciting growth for Hanwha with a similar direct distribution center planned for Atlanta, GA by the end of the year. Additionally, Hanwha will debut a selection of 8-10 new styles at KBIS in January 2016.
The Philadelphia Distribution Center is located at 135 Hartman Road, North Wales, PA 19454. For more information please contact (215) 646-2546.
