United Natural Foods Inc plans to open a new distribution facility in Rocklin CA. The company purchased a new facility March 1, 2005, and plans to move its current operations in Auburn CA to Rocklin by late summer 2005. The new building is 487,000 square feet and will be the largest facility in UNFI’s nationwide distribution network.
The Rocklin facility is scheduled to commence operations by September 2005 and will serve as a distribution hub for customers in Northern California and surrounding states. United Natural Foods currently has 17 distribution centers in the United States, consisting of about 3.0 million square feet of space.
No jobs are expected to be impacted in the transition.
