Continued Growth at Galco Amidst Supply Chain Challenges

New distribution centre provides more inventory and solutions to global disruptions for its customers.

Galco has come a long way since its humble beginnings. Founded in a car by Dan Galasso in 1975, he had a dream of becoming a leader in the industrial electronics and automation space. 

Fast forward to 2023, Galco is now a global distributor of industrial electronics and automation products located in Madison Heights, Michigan, and has become the leader Galasso dreamed it would become. 

As an eCommerce-driven, OEM and MRO-focused distributor of industrial and commercial electrical parts, Galco specialises in the distribution of hard-to-find products, offering a full range of services. These services include technical support, custom engineered systems, cross-reference solutions, and on-site or send-in repair. Galco also offers electronic control, automation and motion, lighting, and power transmission products. 

This past year, Galco celebrated the opening of its brand-new global distribution centre. 

Located just steps away from Galco’s global headquarters, the new state-of-the-art facility accommodates Galco’s growing inventory, which includes more than 350 authorised product lines from more than 670 brands. The new facility allows Galco to ship more than 1,000 orders each day. 

“In 2021 Galco experienced massive growth while combatting continuous supply chain issues and delays,” said Allison Sabia, president and CEO of Galco. 

“Our new warehouse allows us to find solutions to these ongoing disruptions by stocking a broader selection of products and getting them to our customers more efficiently,” Sabia continued to explain. 

Double the size of Galco’s previous facility, the new product distribution centre offers shorter lead times, more workflow efficiency, a media area to share more details about each product, and additional storage space for large drives and motors. 

As a result of the distribution centre opening, a 22 percent increase in new jobs has been realised company-wide to meet customer demand and product-line expansion, allowing Galco to add personnel to further enhance operations. 

Since opening, same-day shipping on ground and expedited orders have exceeded expectations with fulfilment rates of 95 and 99 percent respectively. 

“Having a larger distribution centre will enable us to grow faster and continue to partner with the industrial automation market to support the future of technology,” added Sabia.
