Northeast Distribution Center
This new 1.3 million square foot distribution center will be the third ground up facility that KSS has designed for Grainger in a relationship that began in 1994.
Innovation has always been at the heart of these buildings matching the Grainger vision of customer service. Transformed by the advent of e-commerce, The Northeast Distribution Center will bring together more than 600 employees, focused on delivering Grainger products faster and in a way more customized than ever envisioned before.
The building enhances that process by addressing employee well-being as much as much as it does efficiency. Inside are multi-tiered work areas and an advanced automated retrieval system, all in spaces that are conditioned and day-lit. Places for offices, gathering, and just relaxing, were given great attention in this transformed distribution center. Although this footprint is big, it carefully considers itself in the environment in a project that is committed to a LEED Gold rating. The Grainger branded identity is ever present, announcing and reinforcing a vision that is always ahead of its time
