Concord, N.C. – (November 30, 2016) – Fortiline Waterworks (Fortiline), one of the largest waterworks distributors in the United States, announced today it has opened a new location in Daytona Beach, Florida. With this new branch, Fortiline now has 43 distribution branches in 12 states.
The Daytona Beach facility, at 952 Big Tree Road, Suite 200, is the ninth Fortiline location in Florida. The branch is open and ready to assist local customers.
“We had a growing need to more quickly serve our customers in the Daytona Beach area,” said Ben Cagle, VP of Operations for Fortiline. “This new location will allow us to be more responsive to current and new customers in between our Orlando and Jacksonville branches.”
“We’ve enjoyed great partnerships with countless contractors, developers, and municipalities all across Florida and we are always looking for ways to provide them with faster, superior service,” said Keith Young, Regional Manager for Fortiline’s operations in Florida. “This new Daytona Beach location will help us better achieve the level of service our customers expect from Fortiline.
