The digital lab management platform announces its expansion with a new one million cubic foot distribution center in Hayward, California to support growing demand
PALO ALTO, Calif., July 19, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Quartzy, the only free online laboratory supply management and ordering platform, announced today two growth milestones for the Quartzy Shop, its lab supply marketplace: expanded distribution operations with a new one million cubic foot warehouse in Hayward, California and the growth of its lab supply portfolio to over three million SKUs.
“Across the last few months, supplier partnerships have risen substantially. Suppliers are realizing the strategic value of Quartzy as a channel for growing sales. This has vastly increased our product portfolio to well over three million SKUs and expanded the breadth of products we ship through our current distribution center,” said Adam Regelmann, Quartzy’s Founder and COO. “With more new partnerships in our pipeline alongside greater customer demand, it was evident that scaling up distribution operations would be a necessity.”
Growth in Quartzy’s supply procurement operations has largely been attributed to its massive increase in supplier partnerships and authorized distributor agreements since the start of the year. More partnerships have allowed Quartzy to offer the most diverse digital product catalog in the nation, which has attracted thousands of labs looking to consolidate their procurement efforts and optimize their supply chains.
“Quartzy has been a great partner to work with,” said Shea Biondi, Marketing Manager at Zymo Research Corp. “They really go the extra step to ensure their suppliers and our mutual customers are well taken care of. Quartzy has helped grow our business by providing researchers a simple alternative way to purchase our products. We’ve seen a shift towards online purchasing for the life sciences and Quartzy is definitely ahead of the game in this area.”
The addition of Quartzy’s second fulfillment center expands the company’s West Coast footprint and promises extended distribution capabilities along with further enhancements in service levels for customers. In addition, this new space will also enable it to stock and sell a wider variety of specialized chemicals and reagents.
“At over three million products, Quartzy is now the most comprehensive and diverse lab supply distributor in the nation,” added Adam Regelmann. “We’re very proud of that and we’ll continue working to make it easier than ever for labs to consolidate their purchasing activity and achieve greater efficiency in their day to day operations.”
