Signature Opens Atlanta Warehouse - November 16, 2011 PDF Print E-mail

Signature Automotive Products has opened its third strategically-placed warehouse, this one in Atlanta, Georgia.  This warehouse is strategically located to serve restylers in Southeastern states that account for approximately 25% of Signature’s volume.

Restylers in the Southeastern states will now be able to pick-up their sunroofs from the our Atlanta warehouse or request that Signature ship their sunroof orders from the Atlanta warehouse directly to their door.  Restylers local to the Atlanta market may now minimize their capital investment in inventory stocks and pick up their sunroofs as often as weekly.  Restylers in the Southeastern states currently receive their inventory stocks from the Michigan warehouse, so by Signature arranging shipping units from the Atlanta warehouse, restylers will see a one to two day shortening of delivery times plus realize savings from their freight carrier of choice.

The Atlanta warehouse joins Signature’s other two warehouses in Wixom, Michigan and Dallas, Texas where Signature carries inventory stocks for its restylers.  While other sunroof companies are pulling in their horns a bit, Signature is in an expansion mode.  As few as four years ago Signature maintained only one warehouse, but as its customer base has grown and volumes have increased, Signature has determined that it is advantageous for restylers to purchase closer to home.  “We have wanted an Atlanta warehouse for several years, but the ugly consequences of the recession got in the way of our plans,” stated Dave Gienapp, Signature’s president.  “Now that our volumes have increased and new sizable Southeastern-based restylers have joined our customer base, it becomes a natural progression to open a third location to better serve our customers.  Our business, just like our restylers’ business, is all about service and about satisfying restyler demand in a timely fashion.  With this Atlanta warehouse we believe we can satisfy current and anticipated future demand for our state-of-the-art sunroof products.”  Mr. Gienapp further indicated that Signature is considering warehouses in other geographic areas as well.
