Big things are happening at Abt! Our showroom and warehouse expansion is underway and we’re looking forward to seeing the finished product. Whether you’ve watched the transformation from the highway or on our social media accounts, we love hearing everyone’s excitement. For now, we wanted to share some exciting updates from last week:
As TVs get bigger, more innovative products are released and sales increase, we need more room to store products to better serve Abt customers. Adding over 400,000 square feet of additional warehouse space is a pretty good place to start. This expansion will allow us to offer more of the best appliances and electronics to our customers and create new jobs to support our growth.
The crew accomplished a lot last week. They finished erecting the final PEMB structure and completed the roofing detailing, a big step towards finishing the exterior. Work also continued on several projects including the interior framing and drywall, fire alarm wiring and trim, in-wall plumbing and the lighting under the PEMB structures. They also began installing the sectional doors for the east dock.
Big things are still coming! Next steps include painting the interior drywall, continuing installation for floor tile, beginning installation of infrared heaters by the east dock and the trash compaction room, and completing exterior painting.
Thank you to everyone who has contributed to Abt’s growth over the years. We’re so excited to unveil our new warehouse and showroom space when everything is complete and we hope you’ll continue to monitor the progress of the expansion. Watch this space for more warehouse construction updates!
