Albuquerque, N.M.March 7, 2013Rinchem Company Inc.’s new 65,000-square-foot chemical logistics facility is now open in Hollister, Calif. The new facility includes warehousing areas for regulated and non-regulated chemicals and gases.

Rinchem’s growing customer base in Northern California necessitated an expansion of warehousing space, which prompted the company to relocate from Gilroy, California to a larger, newer facility in Hollister, California,” he explained.

The new Hollister facility utilizes Rinchem’s Chem-Star warehouse management system (WMS) to provide customers with inventory visibility across Rinchem’s global network of 26 locations.
