Encompass Supply Chain Solutions Inc., a provider of forward and reverse logistics for a range of finished goods and replacement parts, on July 23 announced that it will be doubling the size of its Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, distribution facility to support new business.

“Encompass offers our customers an alternative solution that shifts their fixed costs to us, while maintaining their service levels, reducing overall service costs and improving predictability,” Encompass Chief Financial Officer Lanier Bivings said. "This approach is fueling our growth and is the differentiator that’s putting us on track for another record year.”

The added square footage is needed for the company’s continued expansion in the consumer electronics and major appliance parts market, and its growing supply chain management offering.

With its proximity to Latin America, the South Florida location is also the company’s main distribution point for parts supply to this region.

“Increasing our footprint in the Southeast region will allow us to take advantage of numerous new business opportunities,” Encompass President and CEO Robert Coolidge said. “Additionally, the South Florida location is ideal for serving the Latin America market, while supplementing our Georgia distribution facility for domestic supply and enhancing service to our existing clients.”

The Ft. Lauderdale location includes a distribution facility, along with purchasing, IT, customer support and other administrative functions. Coolidge said the decision to expand follows a record-setting month of volume for the company.
