Pet Food Experts Expanding, Hiring for DCs in Tacoma, Denver

Pet Food Experts is expanding two new distribution centers in Washington and Colorado in the next two months, allowing the company to better serve the pet specialty businesses of the Pacific Northwest and Mountain region.

“The expansion of our Tacoma and Denver distribution centers is consistent with our long-standing history of building infrastructure to support sustainable growth,” said CEO Michael Baker. “With consumer demand for premium pet food and supplies at an all-time high, the additional capacity will allow us to continue to expand our reach and provide more value to our customers,” Baker continued.

The new Tacoma distribution center increases capacity by more than 150 percent. With demand for frozen food rising, the new 6,000-square-foot freezer will be equipped with the latest HVAC technology and generator backup. The facility also includes 41 dock doors, up from 15 in the previous location, which will allow for increased daily output capacity.

Subsequent to the Tacoma move, Pet Food Experts is relocating its Denver distribution center approximately 12 miles from the current location. The newly built 157,000 square-foot facility more than doubles storage capacity and boasts 30 high-level bay doors allowing for more operational efficiencies. Like Tacoma, the Denver DC will have a similar state-of-the-art freezer.

“We’re thrilled to be able to continue our growth while creating jobs and exciting career paths for our team members,” said William May, Vice President of Supply Chain Operations. “We’re grateful for the support we’ve received from local and state leaders,” continued May.

Roughly 160 million pounds of natural pet food and supplies pass through Pet Food Experts’ six distribution centers annually, supporting its 6,800 pet specialty retailers across the US. Hiring is ongoing for all positions and levels, including Drivers, Order Selectors, Receivers, Inventory and leadership as the company’s expansion continues.
