Jessup, MD — Basco Shower Enclosures, the Mason, OH-based manufacturer of custom shower enclosures, has opened a distribution center in Jessup, MD, the company announced.
The new 7,500-sq.-ft. warehouse/showroom is aimed at better servicing builders, kitchen and bath dealers, plumbers, wholesalers, contractors and glass dealers in the Baltimore/Washington, DC area, the company said.
“Basco has a strong presence in the Baltimore/Washington, DC market, so opening a distribution center where we deliver better and faster service is the logical next step for us,” said Tom Vezdos, Basco’s v.p./strategic development.
