Electronics wholesale distributor SeaWide announced an expansion at two of its four U.S. facilities.

“Over 3,700 square feet of additional warehouse and office space has been added to our Sarasota location — our second Sarasota facility expansion in eight years,” SeaWide Distribution president Keith Wansley said in a statement.

Seawide’s Costa Mesa facility in California is getting its warehouse remodeled and adding office space. The updates will allow for increased inventory assortment and space for additional staff.

“Our key focus has been to improve our stocking levels and delivery times to our dealers, installers and OEMs throughout the U.S.,” Wansley said. “Adding greater warehouse space to our facilities allows us to provide quality marine electronics at the lowest possible prices and the fastest possible delivery times.”

SeaWide has distribution centers on both coasts in Seattle, Costa Mesa, Calif., and Sarasota, Fla.
