C-Store Master broke ground on the company’s new 120,000-square-foot automated warehouse today. Scheduled to open in Q1 of 2021, the company has invested $12 million in the warehouse, which will be the only one of its kind in the country.
The new warehouse has created 40 jobs that C-Store Master will be hiring for in the coming months. “Huntsville is the perfect place for our work because of its booming business environment and central location to the entire Southeast,” said Sharan Kalva, C-Store Master chief operating officer. “We believe this cutting-edge warehouse paired with our innovative software will continue to set us apart from our competitors.”
C-Store Master has partnered with Geek+ to incorporate three robot technologies in the new warehouse, improving accuracy to 99.99 percent. The multi-level shuttle system is the first of its kind in the Southeast. “C-Store Master’s robots will increase their productivity by three to four times,” said Rick DeFiesta, Geek+ director of business development and partnership. “We’re proud to partner with their team on this efficiency to help provide even quicker service for their customers.”
Specializing in the tobacco and beverage categories, C-Store Master services 2,000+ independent c-stores and 4,000+ chain stores throughout the Southeast, including more than 3,000 Circle K locations.
