SupplyHouse.com opens Nevada
distribution center for next-day delivery.
The 190,000-square-foot warehouse will allow the

A Melville plumbing supply e-commerce company that sprang

Reno, Nevada, that will expand the footprint of its next-day
delivery service, the company said Tuesday.
SupplyHouse.com announced in a news release that it
plans to hire about 30 people to staff its new
190,000-square-foot call and distribution center in Reno,

The e-commerce company, founded in 2004, employs 231 people

and in August of that year moved its headquarters from
