Distribution Center Opens in Reno


The Economic Development Authority of Western Nevada (EDAWN) announced last week that Sonwil Distribution Center opened a new operation on Longley Lane.

The company is a logistics solutions firm serving regional, national and international clients for more than 70 years.

“As a business making our first introduction to the Nevada market, we couldn’t be more excited. We are proud to maintain long-lasting trusted partnerships with some of the largest manufacturers in the world, in a number of verticals, and we look forward to doing the same in Reno,” said Don Dimitroff, chief sales officer of Sonwil Distribution Center. “In addition to being a strategic location for our operations, Reno offers attractive freight rates, service levels, tax environment and business-friendly policies. Our focus will be two-pronged as we work to establish this facility as our Western USA operational hub – we will migrate existing clients to our Reno operation, in order to service their Western U.S. needs, and will proactively offer our services to companies operating, or planning to operate, in this region.”

The company is headquartered out of Buffalo, New York, and the new Nevada facility adds to the company’s operations in New York and New Jersey.

“This is great news for Reno,” said Reno City Councilmember Oscar Delgado. “Sonwil is helping to grow and expand Northern Nevada’s economy by hiring local residents and establishing a home base here. I am pleased to welcome Sonwil to Reno and wish them much success.”
