ECS Corporation Opens Western Region Distribution Facility in Las Vegas
New Office Offers Improved Product Support to West Coast
BROADVIEW, IL (February 2, 2018) – Today ECS Corporation officially opened its western region distribution facility in Las Vegas, NV. Located less than two miles from the popular Las Vegas strip, the facility provides easy access to the city as well as the nation’s west coast. Complete with a will call center, the 7100-square foot location is stocked with crucial elevator and escalator replacement parts.
The office expands ECS Corporation’s logistics network to better service customers across the United States. Customers in the mountain and pacific time zones will benefit from lower freight charges and, in most cases, a one-day delivery point. East coast customers may take advantage of extended shipping hours since the location will ship parts until 4:30 p.m. pacific standard time.
The Las Vegas office is staffed with members of the vertical transportation industry. Manager John Rankin, QEI, joins ECS with more than 33 years’ experience. John became a mechanic in the early 1990s and has worked in the field most of his career. He has experience with all phases of field work, construction, modernization, service and repair. Prior to joining the company, he was Service and Repair Operations Manager for the local ThyssenKrupp branch.
Lori Kekich is the Sales and Operations Coordinator. Her diverse background includes work in the steel, health care, sales and customer service industries. She joined the vertical transportation industry in 2015 as ThyssenKrupp’s State Code Administrator. In January 2017, she accepted a position within the company’s Operations Department as a Service/Repair Coordinator until joining ECS.
“We saw an immediate need to service the west coast, specifically the Las Vegas market”, says Rick Milefchik, President and COO, “The equipment operates 24/7 in a harsh environment and response time is critical. Having an immediate supply of parts available not only helps the local market but improves our distribution capabilities nationwide.”
