Waukegan, Ill.-based Coleman Cable recently announced plans to expand its distribution capabilities by securing a new 500,000-square-foot distribution center in Pleasant Prairie, Wis. The leased facility is located on approximately 28 acres of land and contains approximately 490,000 square feet of warehouse space, 12,000 square feet of office space, and 56 exterior truck docks.

The company's plan is to have the facility in operation by April 1. In addition to providing added capacity to accommodate the company's growth plans, the new distribution facility will allow consolidation of existing distribution facilities currently located in Indianapolis, Gurnee, Ill., and Waukegan, Ill.
