Barrette Outdoor Living Takes to the Highways: Introduces New Fleet of Trucks

CLEVELAND, OH--(Marketwired - Jun 29, 2015) - Barrette Outdoor Living announces the expansion of a new fleet of trucks which will service customers across the United States. Barrette Outdoor Living, a division of Barrette, took delivery of a portion of the fleet mid-May. Additional trucks will begin hitting the road this summer and fall.

The new trucks will join an existing fleet currently based out of the Brooksville, FL location. Trucks will be delivering Barrette Outdoor Living products, including aluminum fencing, vinyl fencing, railing, wood fence, and outdoor accent products to hundreds of locations across the country. Home base for the new trucks will be the Galloway, NJ distribution center.

"It's a very exciting time at Barrette Outdoor Living, as we launch this brand new initiative for the organization. As we continue to expand over time, so do our capabilities. Growth has come at a rapid pace and expanding with this service allows us to continue growing our customer base," said Barrette Outdoor Living President Jean desAutels. "Making an investment on this large of a scale means we are fully committed to that growth. In addition, it means an expanded, more engaging personal service to customers. We value the established long-term partnerships with our distributors and this signifies our partnership with them will continue for years to come," added desAutels.

Daily deliveries have begun in the Eastern region of the country utilizing the new fleet. Once all trucks are in operation, deliveries will begin expanding, with additional locations in the South and then to Midwest and West Coast customers.

"Internally, we created a dedicated team of logistic experts to manage the fleet.
Not having to rely on a variety of outside vendors to get our product where it needs to be will make better use of employees' time and efforts elsewhere, specifically focusing on customer service and on growing the Barrette Outdoor Living brands," said desAutels.

In addition to Galloway and Brooksville, Barrette Outdoor Living operates additional distribution centers in Bulls Gap, TN; Flint, MI; Millville, NJ; Pendergrass, GA, Morristown, TN and Riverside, CA.
