MARTIN GUITAR OPENS NEW DISTRIBUTION CENTER
NAZARETH, PA - Martin Guitar, the country's leading acoustic guitar manufacturer, announced the opening of a new distribution center in Easton, PA, just 15 minutes from its Nazareth, PA headquarters. This newly-renovated facility boasts increased storage and material handling capabilities that are in line with the company's aggressive growth targets.
The decision to open the new Martin Guitar Distribution Center resulted from increased demand for Martin Guitar products worldwide. The new facility was explicitly designed to consolidate goods from several manufacturing sources and redistribute them around the world with increased speed and efficiency.
Another focus of the newly designed Martin Guitar Distribution Center was energy conservation. The facility boasts highly efficient lighting controlled by motion detectors, increased insulation, bicycle racks in its parking area and a walking path; all of which allow Martin to apply for Bronze Level LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental) Certification.
