Atlanta, GA – Merchants Metals is pleased to announce that the Richmond service center has now been moved to a larger facility in Rockville, VA. The original location was absorbed by AMTRAK in their facility expansion. The new facility is in Goochland County and is approximately 10 miles west of the old location.
“The new location is very accessible from the I-64 Interstate and is convenient to the Richmond metropolitan area. The facility layout, warehouse and yard are larger than our previous accommodations which will allow the branch to increase their inventory stock levels and carry new product lines.” said Tom Purcell, District Manager for the Mid-Atlantic Region. “Rockville is a convenient area for us to grow our business and better serve our customers in Virginia.”
Hunter Newton has been the Service Center Manager for the past year and a half, and he was eager to get the new location up and running as quickly as possible. “Our new location allows us to continue to serve our local contractors, as well as contractors in both the eastern and western parts of the state” he said. “With a larger warehouse and yard we can stock a more diverse and higher level of inventory than before.”
“In addition to the added square footage, the new service center is also conveniently located adjacent to the I-64 and I-295 Interstates which allows for easy access from multiple directions,” said Newton. The new service center is located at 2356 Lanier Rd., Rockville, VA 23146, and the 804.262.9783 and 800.348.7678 phone numbers will remain in use.
Newton and his staff have over 40 years of fence distribution and installation experience. They use this knowledge and skill to create an environment that provides a positive experience. “Hunter brings strong industry knowledge and experience to the location. His leadership will provide us with healthy growth potential in the upcoming years,” Purcell said. “We believe that people make the difference at Merchants Metals and we couldn’t be happier to have the experience of the staff on our team.”
