Parksite Announces Connecticut Expansion
Parksite, a leading supplier of building materials, announces the opening of their brand new distribution facility in East Windsor, CT. Currently Parksite operates two locations in the South Windsor area, housing our LBM products, our Surfaces family of products and the hardwood plywood and panel products sold thru our Atlantic Plywood subsidiary. “This new third Parksite location offers 150,000 sq. ft. interior warehouse space and significant outside storage space, both expandable”, shares Jim Coulter, Director of Supply Chain. “We’ve outgrown our current South Windsor facilities and this new space will allow us to improve warehouse efficiencies which will ultimately result in a higher level of service for our customers”.
“It’s all about improving the overall customer experience” states Rob Brannock, Director of Sales. “Our customers and our manufacturing partners will be assured our products are stored, handled and delivered utilizing the latest technologies available. The increased space and improved warehouse efficiencies will result in our customers receiving a better product and a higher level of service they can pass along to their builders, contractors and fabricators.”
With 23 locations and over 750 employee-owners, Parksite firmly believes their competitive advantage is directly attributable to their employees. According to CEO, Ron Heitzman, “Every one of our Associates is dedicated to contributing to the success of both our customers and our suppliers. Owners produce the best results with integrity and honesty, and by doing that Parksite is successful as well. The dedication and excitement that is generated when everyone is an owner is extraordinary.”

According to Ron Heitzman, CEO, “Our commitment has been, and will always be, to create demonstrable value for our customers, suppliers and shareholders.
