RK Logistics Group, a provider of warehousing, eCommerce fulfillment and supply chain management services, announced the expansion of its operations in the Silicon Valley with the opening of two new facilities in Newark. The company is launching operations at a 269,000 square foot facility at 6753 Mowry Avenue, as well as a 141,000 square foot, newly built warehouse at 7375 Morton Avenue, part of a recently developed commercial and industrial business park at the site of the old Morton Salt works.
The new Mowry site will be home to RK’s work for Silicon Valley-based Lam Research, which designs and builds semiconductor manufacturing systems. Under a recently signed multi-year deal, RK will provide Lam with a variety of logistics services supporting its manufacturing operations, including warehousing, managing of components, parts and MRB inventories, shipping services, returns management and delivery of production materials to Lam manufacturing facilities.
The Morton Avenue warehouse will become the primary location for RK’s eCommerce and retail fulfillment operations, which manage inventories, and pulls, packs and ships online orders for multiple retail products businesses.
“We are actively hiring at our new locations as well as existing facilities,” said Rock Magnan, president of RK Logistics. “The Bay Area logistics industry was a hot market last year and has continued that momentum into 2021. We had one of our best years in 2020 and look to improve on that this year as we continue to grow the business, and provide agile, responsive, cost-effective logistics solutions for our clients.”
The company expects to hire up to 50 associates to staff and operate the new facilities and has ongoing staffing needs at current locations for an additional 50 new hires. Positions include warehouse associates, forklift operators, material handlers, order pickers and stockers, operations supervisors, and customer support personnel.
