Supply chain and logistics firm KMM Telecommunications has expanded its national distribution network with a 200,000-square-foot facility in Grapevine expected to bolster its presence in the U.S. communications industry.

"The Dallas area is a terrifically dynamic region for the communications industry," said company CEO Katherine McConvey in a news release.

"Many of our customers and manufacturers have a strong presence there, and KMM is pleased to have a local facility to serve them," McConvey said.

The building features 200,000 square feet of Class A distribution space, as well as 5,000 square feet of office space and 31 docks. It stands four miles north of Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport.

The New Jersey-based company distributes communications equipment from the facility, as well as performs engineering and tower training services at this location.

Beyond Texas borders, the company’s distribution footprint includes 34 facilities with 1.2 million square feet of warehouse space under roof, with central distribution centers in California and New Jersey totaling 300,000 square feet.

"We took a hard look at our facility rationalization plan before deciding on the Dallas area," said John Campanelli, company president of business operations. "We wanted to optimize transportation lanes to help control freight costs for our customers. We also wanted a large facility in the central U.S. to provide a certain amount of distribution redundancy to our coastal operations, which further enhances our disaster recovery program."  

Established in 1991,  KMM provides supply chain managed services to the U.S. communications market. More information on the privately held, firm is available at www.kmmcorp.net.
