The article reports on the plan of Magnussen Home to expand its West Coast distribution center through the opening of its facility in Anaheim, California. According to chief executive officer Jeff Cook, it might be better to add a separate distribution center to accommodate growth. The company has lowered efficient distribution to offer U.S. retailers two-, three- and five-day delivery depending on distance.
