PDR Expands to North Texas, Leveraging Two Decades of CPG Logistics Expertise

With the addition of a forthcoming facility in Dallas-Fort Worth, Packaging Distribution Resources' portfolio now totals more than 600,000 square feet across the U.S.. The New Jersey-based company serves industries from consumer packaged goods to nutritional supplements, beauty and personal care, home goods, and e-commerce.

Packaging Distribution Resources—a provider of logistics and warehousing services for consumer packaged goods companies—has announced the opening of a new 56,000-square-foot facility in Dallas-Fort Worth.

PDR’s expansion, set for late spring 2024, marks a milestone for the New Jersey-based company as it celebrates its 20th anniversary and continues to grow its presence across the U.S. The North Texas expansion adds to PDR’s portfolio of facilities, which now totals more than 600,000 square feet across the country.

The new Dallas-Fort Worth facility—the location of which has yet to be announced—will specialize in supporting CPG companies across retail, direct marketing, and e-commerce. PDR serves a range of industries, including nutritional supplements, PPE, beauty and personal care, and home goods, according to the company.

“Early in my career, I did a lot of work in Texas and loved working there, so expanding to Dallas really brings my work full circle,” Jack Sandbach, PDR’s founder and CEO, said in a statement. “We’re bringing long-standing and new clients huge savings on costs and shipping time. The sky’s the limit.”

PDR’s expansion to Dallas is partly driven by customer demand, as three existing customers wanted the company to be closer to their manufacturing operations, joining PDR’s already large existing customer base in Texas, the American Journal of Transportation (AJOT) reported.

DFW facility to offer warehousing, pick and pack, shipping, and more

PDR says the new state-of-the-art facility will provide a full range of services: warehousing, pick and pack, assembly, fulfillment, labeling, packaging, freight forwarding, return processing, shipping, transportation management, customer service, and more.

Founded in 2003 as the primary distribution center for two clients with just three to four assembly lines, PDR has experienced exponential growth over the past two decades, driven mainly by word of mouth, according to the company. Today, PDR is home to more than 100 clients and 20 assembly lines, and employs more than 250 full-time associates across eight sites in Edison, N.J., and two facilities in Los Angeles, California.

Staying ahead of the curve to meet its customers’ needs has been key, according to the company, particularly during the e-commerce explosion that started during the COVID-19 pandemic and has continued to grow. In 2020, PDR added 114,000 square feet with 18 assembly lines and 40-foot ceilings for amplified storage capabilities, followed by its West Coast expansion in 2021, setting up operations in Los Angeles.

But one priority has never changed in the company’s two decades of business, CEO Sandback told AJOT. He puts people first—employees, customers, family, or business partners—and believes success will follow. “Loyalty is critical across the business—to the company, its customers, partners, and team,” Sandbach said. “The other key ingredient is to be able to look ahead anticipate customer needs and proactively create solutions. That’s been essential.”
