PRIDE Industries, an outsourcing solutions provider and job creator for people with disabilities, announces the addition of a more than 175,000-square-foot warehousing facility in Lincoln, Calif.

Construction of the facility, which will be completed in two phases, is the result of the company’s continued growth and projected business opportunities.

“We are pleased to announce the expansion,” says Tony Lopez, vice president of operations, in a media release from the company. “The expansion will enable PRIDE to better support our manufacturing, contract packaging and fulfillment customers, and provide additional capacity for new opportunities.”

Currently in the construction project’s first phase, PRIDE is transitioning into 75,000 square feet of warehousing space and bringing 35 to 40 jobs to the Lincoln community. Phase two of the project, which will include an additional 102,000 square feet of warehouse space and 150 full and part-time jobs, will be completed within 12 months of occupancy.

“PRIDE’s expansion will bring jobs and fill warehouse space. Our community welcomes PRIDE, a provider of high-quality business that provides outstanding services to both its employees and customers,” states Tom Cosgrove, CEO of the Lincoln Area Chamber of Commerce, in the release.

PRIDE Industries, which operates in 14 states and the nation’s capital, provides a range of supply chain solutions, logistics management, and manufacturing services.
