FW Warehousing is opening a new 500,000 square foot warehouse distribution center in Fenton, Missouri, according to Mark Cusumano, President and CEO of FW Warehousing, a third party logistics provider that has been involved in the St. Louis warehousing industry since its founding in 1949.
“We’re opening our new facility in Fenton, Missouri, to support a major new account, a national packaging manufacturer with a local plant here in the St. Louis area,” said Cusumano. “With its proximity to other manufacturers in and around the Fenton area, and its BN rail access, our new Fenton facility should also prove attractive to other new customers as well.”
Melissa Appel has been named Facility Manager for the new Fenton warehouse distribution center. She has already played a major role in the startup of the new facility. Appel had previously serviced as FW Warehousing’s Inventory Control Manager.
Cusumano added that he expected the new Fenton facility to be operational in short order, possibly by the time this story is posted online. The expansion into Fenton marks the opening of another chapter for this long-time St. Louis warehousing provider.
