JTB Mfg., BR Wholesale Seal Lease Transaction
JTB Manufacturing Inc. and BR Wholesale RV & Marine have completed a 10-year lease transaction, allowing BR Wholesale to expand into facilities needed for distribution to its RV, bus transportation, marine, aeronautics and specialty vehicle customers in the Southwest.
According to a press release, the warehouse is located 47 miles east of Dallas-Ft. Worth and houses approximately 15,000 square feet of space complete with offices and a conference room. The new facility will also allow BR Wholesale to build its West Coast call center and expand their calling hours.
“This is a deal that just happened during general conversation,” said Terry Hurst, president and CEO for JTB. “James LeBelle, president of BR Wholesale RV & Marine, and I were talking about the JTB Products and somewhere along the way he mentioned that he was looking for warehouse space in Texas. It was several weeks later that I told him about our facility. James then asked me for pictures and then he visited the facility for verification and we put an agreement together that day.”
LeBelle noted, “It has always been a goal for BR Wholesale RV & Marine to be able to serve our customers in the Southwest faster. Now we will finally be able to support our customers with next-day service of parts to this region. The call center will also allow us to provide installation and power electronic integration tech support for questions during the Pacific and Central time zones.
