Knipper Goes West!

Late last year, Knipper goes bigger 313k sqft bigger! Our newest facility, located in Charlestown, Indiana is officially open and has begun providing services to our clients. The new facility, within very close proximity to UPS World Port in Louisville, KY and just two hours from the FedEx International hub in Indianapolis, maintains over 22,000 pallet locations, and 5,000 square feet of temperature controlled package storage.

The ribbon cutting ceremony took place on Friday November 4th with nearly 100 attendees including VIP business associates, state organization and local government representatives, construction project participants, and Knipper staff.

In Jim Knipper’s opening comments, he reminisced about the company’s growth. “Looking back over our 30 years in business, it is hard to believe where we have come from 23 employees to over 600. From 15,000 sq. ft. to nearly 1,000,000. Behind me stands the largest, newest and finest facility in Charleston – but what better defines the facility is not the brick and mortar – but rather the heart and soul – namely the employees of our company located hear and at all our other locations.

Other speakers included President and COO – Mike Laferrera, Charleston Mayor – Bob Hall, President at Crossdock Development – Lee Wilburn, President & CEO of One Southern Indiana – Wendy Dant Chesser, and Knipper QA Manager – Donetta Peabody.

In speaking with the group, Mike Laferrera said, “We are thrilled at the opportunity to serve many of our customers even more efficiently based on their unique distribution patterns. At Knipper, we continually strive to improve and enhance our products and services based on our customer’s changing needs. The Indiana facility is one way we demonstrate that commitment.

Thank you to all the colleagues who provided support leading up to the ribbon cutting ceremonies.
