In order to provide more space for order fulfillment and finished goods storage, Ag Leader Technology, Inc. announced that it has opened a new distribution center in Ames, Iowa.

As Ag Leader’s product line continues to grow and the business expands into more overseas markets, the company has outgrown its current fulfillment facilities.

“In order to meet demand and deliver our line of products across the world,” explains Al Myers, president of Ag Leader Technology, “We have opened a new distribution center located just down the road from our corporate headquarters.”

Ag Leader has continuously seen an increase in the volume of product moving through the company due to many factors, such as new product introductions, expanding market presence and increased sales.

“We’re very excited to have the extra space, as it will help us to serve our customers better,” says Myers.

The distribution center was designed with the same lean concepts used throughout Ag Leader’s manufacturing areas. This includes storing products with high runners close to the center of the fulfillment area, as well as minimizing the amount of lifting and moving of products throughout the shipping process.

“All of these changes minimize the time necessary to pick an order,” explains Chad Heuer, operations manager at Ag Leader, “And also allow Ag Leader to fill orders faster and with greater accuracy. The transition to the new distribution center was completed without disrupting the flow of product to customers."
