Chewy.com was launched in 2011 to take on traditional pet retail stores by delivering pet food online with convenience, selection and low cost pricing. Since then, the company has rapidly expanded into an online pet ecosystem. In 2017, the company was acquired by PetSmart in what was then the largest acquisition of an eCommerce business.
Back in 2016, Precision Warehouse Design began to work with Chewy on designing distribution centers for the fast growing company. The first expansion of Chewy in DFW, a warehouse in South Dallas opened in 2017.
Our team installed MHS Conveyor Systems, high speed scales from Mettler Toledo and Interlake Mecalux Racking.
For the next 5 years, our team installed conveyor systems for seven fulfillment centers in Pennsylvania, Indiana, Nevada, Arizona and Florida. Each warehouse had a short timeline of 5 months from purchase order to wrap up. Many of the facilities were 600,000 to 800,000+ square feet.
