Albuquerque, N.M.—Guardian Building Products, a company headquartered in South Carolina, moved its distribution center to 5851 Edith Blvd. in Albuquerque. According to Bernalillo County records, the latest assessment evaluates the property at approximately $1.7 million. The company’s Albuquerque branch relocated its warehouse facility from 4300 2nd St., where it had operated for 40 years.

With a larger and more efficient center, GBP covers a 300-mile service radius, including the entire state of New Mexico. The new center has 75,000 square feet of covered storage and approximately double the outdoor storage capacity of its previous warehouse, allowing the company to increase its inventory. Building materials from key suppliers will be available on site, including TAMKO roofing and accessories, GAF roofing and accessories, Knauf Insulation and Clipstone stone veneer. The building is also conveniently located near an active rail spur.

“We’ll be significantly increasing our product offering and taking deliveries via rail – both tremendous economic advantages,” John Crowder, GBP regional vice president of the southwest division, said in a prepared statement.
