Stocking our Warehouse

Our threads are manufactured in Japan, and then sent via boat and truck to our warehouse in St. George, Utah. We just received a nice shipment.
Once an order is sent from Japan, it takes about 25 days to reach our docks.
When the truck arrived, 4 of our Superior men hurried to unload 15 pallets into our warehouse.
It took 3 hours to unload 1 full semi trailer, and 1/2 of another trailer.
This shipment contained 306 boxes, comprising about 18,000 lbs. of thread.

Once the pallets reach our shipping dock, Yeimy started checking off the entries on the order forms to make sure the items requested had arrived.

The staff really hustles to get everything unloaded as quickly as possible. It took about 3 hours to place each box by the shelves in the warehouse.

It will take another few days to unpack each box and place products on the shelves.

Jon, one of our Vice Presidents, helps with the unloading when necessary. One benefit of working here is you don't need a gym membership to work out. We call it "Superior Gym."
Our staff has to be in good physical shape to lift these heavy boxes.
We work very hard at keeping our inventory current so when you place your orders we have the products you need.
