Phoenix-based wide-format printer and cutter manufacturer Mutoh America has opened a new distribution center in Carson, California, not far from the port of Long Beach.
The new facility is ISO 9001-rated and offers state-of-the-art inventory tracking to handle the company’s products once they are transported from the Port of Long Beach after arriving from the company’s manufacturing campus in Japan, according to Mutoh.
The new facility adds to Mutoh’s existing distribution centers that serve the Americas—located in Arizona and Panama. The addition will shorten the company’s time to market, increase flexibility in order processing, improve operational efficiency and offer customers savings in both shipping costs and in the time needed for them to receive goods, according to Mutoh.
“This is a huge step forward for Mutoh America,” said Brian Phipps, president of Mutoh America. “Being in (the Los Angeles area) and becoming more efficient plus lowering costs are key to any company, and this allows us to do just that.”
Mutoh America also has learning facilities in Torrance, California; Chicago; and Phoenix.
