Ledvance is opening an Eastern Distribution Center (EDC) in Easton, Pennsylvania to service the eastern US region.
The EDC will start supporting pilot customers in December with full rollout in early 2023. This will enable quicker delivery times into the region, having stock available for local and New York City pickups, and better control of inbound container processes from the port.
“We recognize many factors contributed to challenges around having two distribution centers in the United States. The industry and the world have changed, and this move will allow us to service our customers more efficiently, effectively, and reliably, along with local ‘will call’ services,” said Jonathan Lubeck, US CEO, Ledvance. “Our company’s roots are in Pennsylvania, and our trusted Sylvania brand is literally part of the state’s name. We always have our customer top of mind, and we are proud to be returning to Pennsylvania to be the bright choice for them.”
