CRL Opening New Branch Distribution Facility in Las Vegas

C. R. Laurence Co. Inc. (CRL) of Los Angeles is opening a new branch distribution facility in Las Vegas. The new branch will serve customers in Nevada and Utah and will have a 40,000-square-foot facility in the Southwestern area of the city.

“With this new branch, we will be able to improve service to customers in the region and facilitate delivery,” said Donald E. Friese, CRL president and chief executive officer. 

“The facility will also feature a “will-call” department and a major product display area. Las Vegas is often cited as the fastest growing city in America and opening a facility there makes good business sense,” he added.

Branch manager for the new facility will be Doug Monroe, who has been with CRL for more than 14 years.
