Business Spotlight: Nutrition Services
2 May 2019
"Nutrition Services’ new facility located at 2210 South Lincoln Avenue, York took care of several needs according to Jason Lorenzen who is a partner in the business with his father Ken.
It allowed them to consolidate warehouse space from three or four locations into one, it gave them a retail space for some of the 1,000 different products they sell and it also simplified things for their customers who pick up many of the products produced by the company which saw its origin back in the early 1990’s. Nutrition Services’ main office and mill remain at their location at 5th and Division Avenue.
“We needed more room and we started planning for this facility about a year and a half ago,” said Lorenzen. “We wanted a store front and a more centralized location to make it more advantageous for our customers.”
The new 30,000 square foot warehouse facility and the adjoining 3,000 square foot retail space certainly fit the bill. The facility was also located on the property to leave space in the rea for further expansion in the future if needed. Hours for the retail store front are 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday.
The warehouse facility features rack systems for certain products with enough room for more racks if more vertical storage space is needed. There are five loading docks and one large door with a ramp which allows vehicles to drive into the warehouse or forklifts to drive out if flatbed trucks need to be loaded. Three full-time employees man the new facility and others can be shifted from the other location if needed.
As mentioned earlier, Nutrition Services product list features somewhere in the vicinity of 1,000 different products, many of which are produced right here in York.
“We believe in using higher quality in our products,” said Lorenzen. “We want to improve the health of our customers’ animals and we will work with our customers to design the feed which will maximize the potential of their animals.”
“Our show feeds are distributed throughout the country,” he added. “We have dealers located in different parts of the country and we have a lot of local commercial customers also.”
Lorenzen said that they hope to have an Open House sometime in the near future to allow the public to see what they have put in place. I’m sure they would be as impressed as I was with the company’s new facility."
