The Chambersburg facility’s primary coverage area includes Virginia, West Virginia, Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine.
It will be managed by Mark Barnhart, who brings 12 years of distribution and logistics management experience to the position. He has experience managing large operations within the food, pharmaceutical and automotive industries.
