Sika Sarnafil, the worldwide market leader in thermoplastic roofing and waterproofing membranes, today announced the opening of a new 63,000-square-foot warehouse and distribution center in Cypress, CA.
Due to steady growth, Sika Sarnafil has outgrown its current facility in Cypress, leading to the opening of the new larger warehouse. Laid out for maximum efficiency, the new warehouse and combined office space more than doubles Sika Sarnafils footprint and will enable Sika Sarnafil to increase support and enhance service to local and regional customers.
This new distribution center improves our ability to service our customers and builds on our decades of commitment to our partners in Southern California and throughout the Western United States, said Jim Rubenacker, Director of Customer Operations for Sika Sarnafil.
With the increased warehouse size, Sika Sarnafil estimates an additional 450 truckloads of roofing membrane and accessories will be transported by train rather than by truck over the next 5 years, saving well over 1,000,000 road miles and approximately 250,000 gallons of diesel fuel.
Rubenacker added, More storage capacity will mean we have more product on hand and customers will not experience a wait time for East Coast supply. In addition, product pickup will be easier as a result of the larger lot and added outdoor space for transport vehicles.
The Cypress, CA distribution center is one of four Sika Sarnafil distribution hubs including: Canton, MA; Kansas City, MO; and Salt Lake City, UT.

Power Automedia has seen exponential growth since the company’s founding in 2006. This growth necessitated a recent move to a new, larger facility that could house all nine of Power Automedia’s current online magazines with room to grow in the future. With that in mind, a new building was purchased in September 2012 and four months of renovations were made in anticipation of the move. The relocation was complete in January 2013 and an open house was held for more than 200 friends, family, and industry partners on Friday, January 25.
This new 11,500 square-foot facility will allow the Power Automedia team to continue to develop their digital media properties while creating new jobs. Power Automedia will be investing in additional administrative, customer service, and editorial talent to help serve their customers and manage the growth already seen and still to come in the burgeoning digital media market. “This new Power Automedia building means a great deal to our staff and to our clients,” explained James Lawrence, Power Automedia’s founder. “It will give us additional space for growth, improved photography and video capabilities, and an optimized layout for a digital media company.

In 2013, Power Automedia will enter the truck marketplace with two additional digital titles, OffroadXtreme.com and DieselArmy.com. Power Automedia’s unique blend of high-quality technical articles combined with their informative human interest stories have won over the minds of enthusiasts seeking information online, and the move to the new location will facilitate internal upgrades that will better position the company to serve these new markets in the future.
