Tri Vantage, a supplier of specialty fabrics and hardware serving the marine, awning and furniture industries, is opening a Seattle distribution center that will service the Pacific Northwest.
The new 15,000-square-foot facility is in the Southcenter South Industrial Park in Tukwila, Wash., just outside Seattle.
“We are establishing this new distribution center because Tri Vantage is a strategically important supplier to the awning, marine and furniture industries, and we want to support a closer connection to our many customers throughout the Pacific Northwest,” Tri Vantage vice president of operations Steve Toth said in a statement.
Chris Lazar, who has more than 10 years of experience in warehouse and distribution management, will serve as site manager for the Seattle location. Most recently, he served as assistant manager of the Tri Vantage distribution center in Hayward, Calif.
Holly Menashe will continue to serve as account representative for the Northwest. Menashe has more than 30 years of sales experience, including the management of her own interior design firm.
