Site Improvements at WFP Chicago!
Weekes Chicago invested in their Distribution Site! “This is just the beginning,” according to Tim Sandrik, Chicago facility manager, “First things first, we added improvements for safe operation and material handling. We then constructed new warehouse space for additional inside storage.” Tim continues, “Our customers tell us that they like our product mix and services and keep on suggesting other products they would like from us. We have to respond to that.”
