Simpson Strong-Tie Opens New Kent Distribution Center
Simpson Strong-Tie, a provider of engineered structural connectors and building solutions, recently opened three new warehouse, distribution, and training centers in Denver, Salt Lake City, and Kent, Washington.
Part of a strategic investment to increase the Simpson Strong-Tie US distribution footprint, the new facilities will significantly help ease supply chain issues that continue to impact the construction industry, including supply chain delays. The new facilities are expected to create more than 50 jobs.
The Kent site, which is located in Pacific Gateway’s Building 3 at 20210 66th Avenue S., was the last vacant structure in the 823,000-square-foot Pacific Gateway development. The Pacific Gateway Industrial Park sold in December 2022 for $260 million, and the buyer was an entity affiliated with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The sellers were Panattoni Development Company and New York-based Link Logistics Real Estate, which developed the property in a joint venture.
