Daiwa USA doubles office and warehouse complex


Daiwa US has moved into its new office and warehouse complex in California, doubling the space and capacity to ship product.

Planning for the new facility started in 2019, but issues including the COVID-19 pandemic and supply chain delays, to construction and warehouse shortages and changes in their working environment, slowed the process.

“We wanted to make sure the new facility met our needs in these post-COVID times so we did a pause with selecting the right location,” said Daiwa USA President Carey Graves (below). “By discussing and collaborating with our warehouse and office operations managers on what was needed to run our business more efficiently, the new facility sets us up to grow Daiwa’s business and better serve our dealers and customers.”

Warehouse Operations Manager Brian Nolte said that the new facility gives Daiwa 20 truck bays dedicated to inbound and outbound shipping.

“While the warehouse needs were the main priority, the secondary focus was our office needs,” Graves said. “With changes in the business environment to accommodate both in-office and out-of-office working capabilities, we’ve set up our corporate area with dedicated space for customer service, our accounting/financial operations and our sales and marketing office needs.

“While many of our office staff work a hybrid in-office/OOF schedule, we have an excellent set-up in the new facility for the various teams to come together for in-person discussions and collaboration for our business.”

Graves added the entire Daiwa team is anxious to welcome its manufacturer reps, dealers and distributors to the new facility in 2024. “It shows our commitment to the Daiwa tackle business, which in turn shows our commitment to their businesses,” said Graves.
