Sagebrook Home’s new South Carolina DC is 15 minutes from the Port of Charleston.
LOS ANGELES—Sagebrook Home has opened a new 500,000 square-foot distribution center in Summerville, S.C. that enables it to now distribute products from both the West and East Coast, reduce transit time and combat the rising cost of freight, the home décor company said.
The South Carolina distribution center, which was completed last month and is located 15 minutes from the Port of Charleston, is in addition to Sagebrook Home’s current Los Angeles distribution center. It will employ more than 200 employees.
“This new DC gives us the opportunity to implement the latest in technology and keep Sagebrook Home a force in the home category,” said CEO Justin Kachan.
All Sagebrook Home distribution centers will become paperless in early 2022.
New director of marketing
The company also recently named Michael Rull director of marketing. Rull has more than 15 years of experience in the interior design and home furnishings industry, having held positions at Made Goods, Feizy and Classic Home.
“We are thrilled to welcome Michael to the Sagebrook Home family in leading the future marketing efforts for the company and brand,” Kachan said. “His experience and creative vision will help grow the brand identity of Sagebrook Home along with the innovative plans we have in order to continue to grow the business.”
Rull graduated from the University of Oklahoma and is currently part of the University of California, Los Angeles Extension Program in Architecture & Interior Design.
