Redden Marine Supply is opening a new warehouse in Seattle.

The 37,000-square-foot facility will serve as the Bellingham, Wash.-based company’s main distribution center for its growing branch locations and e-commerce websites. It also will support the company’s wholesale delivery network and commercial fishing accounts and will feature a retail store to serve wholesale, commercial and retail customers.

With more than 50,000 items in stock, Redden is a source of boat parts and accessories that include electrical, plumbing, hydraulics, engine parts, safety gear, paint and maintenance supplies.

Other onsite services include free local wholesale delivery, hydraulics service and repair, net loft, future dockside pickup and global shipping.

“We are excited to join the boating community in Seattle,” Redden executive vice president Mike Reese said in a statement. “While the primary justification for the Seattle facility was to leverage the cost of distribution and further support our branch and e-commerce operations, having the ability to serve local boaters with this large, fully stocked location is icing on the cake and fully supports our company’s mission to thrill and delight our customers.”

The company expects to open the new location in January.
