Hanwha Surfaces: Company Opens Direct Distribution Center in U.S.


Atlanta — Oct. 7, 2015 — Hanwha Surfaces, the American subsidiary of South Korean-based conglomerate Hanwha L&C | Surfaces, announced the grand opening of its Direct Distribution Center in the United States.

The 40,000-square-foot facility in the Philadelphia area features a state-of-the-art showroom, office space, training room, and full-service warehouse.

The company hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Oct. 2 with President J.K. Lee and members of Hanwha Surfaces’ executive team. 

“The brand-new facility gives us the opportunity to directly engage and reach loyal customers throughout the fabrication, architecture, and design communities,” said Dan Boyd, vice president of corporate strategy, Hanwha Surfaces. “This is also the beginning of an exciting period of growth for Hanwha, including the opening of an additional distribution center in Atlanta later this year.”

The distribution center will also feature full HanStone Quartz slabs so that designers, architects, and fabricators can see the quality and design of the products firsthand. This allows industry insiders to have unparalleled access to Hanwha Surface’s entire collection as never before.

The 1,500-square-foot showroom will serve as the centerpiece for HanStone Quartz and Hanex Solid Surfaces’ latest products and will include five kitchen vignettes featuring the latest trends in countertop design. The latter include HanStone Quartz’s recently launched, marble-inspired Cascina and nature-influenced Movimento Collections.  

The opening of the Philadelphia facility, which employs 15 local workers, signals a year of exciting growth for Hanwha, with a similar direct distribution center planned for Atlanta by the end of the year. Additionally, Hanwha will debut a selection of eight to 10 new styles at KBIS in January 2016.

The Philadelphia Distribution Center is at 135 Hartman Road, North Wales, PA 19454.  For more information, visit www.hanwhasurfaces.com
