BUTTE — Butte-Silver Bow announced Monday, Dec. 21, 2020, that Murdoch’s Ranch & Home Supply will be opening a new distribution center at Montana Connections Business Development Park, adding yet another business to the expanding park. The new distribution center will be approximately 70,000 – 80,000 square feet in size, situated on 21 acres of land.
“We are excited for Murdoch’s new distribution center at Montana Connections,” said Dave Palmer, Butte-Silver Bow Chief Executive. “This is a perfect example of how businesses can successfully utilize the park’s prime location where Interstate’s 15 and 90 intersect. We are proud to be selected by top-performing businesses for what our area has to offer. The fact that Murdoch’s is a strong Montana company makes this choice even better.”
Murdoch’s will join other companies that have made Montana Connections Business Development Park their home this year including Wausau Supply Company and Ergon Asphalt and Emissions.
“The new facility will provide room to operate more efficiently with plenty of acreage should expansion be necessary in the future,” said Rick Ungersma, President and CEO Murdoch’s. “The additional space will increase our ability to serve our stores and customers with the products they need, when they need it.”
The Murdoch’s team partnered with UPS Customer Solutions beginning in the fall of 2019 to perform a detailed network analysis of Murdoch’s Supply Chain and the growing business. Optimal locations were narrowed down by evaluating all inbound and outbound freight and then evaluated to determine the most optimal location based on real estate, labor market and several other key factors.
