Optimas Solutions, a global industrial manufacturer/distributor and service provider, announced today the opening of a 30,400 sq. ft. facility in St. Louis to handle the U.S. distribution of a new line of manufacturing consumable products focusing on personal protective equipment (PPE) and maintenance, repair, and operations (MRO).

By adding this line of products and a dedicated distribution facility strategically set up in the middle of the country, Optimas will address urgent customer demands for indirect and consumable items quickly and easily, especially safety products due to COVID-19.

“A key pillar of our Show Me Strong Recovery Plan is expanding Missouri’s PPE reserves, which includes localizing the supply chain,” Missouri Governor Mike Parson said. “We are thrilled to work with Optimas Solutions and support its new nationwide distribution hub in St. Louis, which will be a huge asset not only to Missouri but the entire United States.”

“The goal of this strategy is to be laser focused on those products that are in urgent demand by our customers,” Marc Strandquist, Optimas Chief Executive Officer said. “We’ve listened to and learned that our customers don’t necessarily need full-line distribution right now, but instead need Optimas to meet their needs for common items in a dedicated, efficient manner. With this new line and new distribution facility, our goal is to simplify product selection and quickly deliver what our customers need most at the best value possible.”

“Working with Optimas Solutions as they expand their global company to include PPE has been an honor for our team and our partners at the Missouri Department of Economic Development, AllianceSTL, and the St. Louis Economic Development Partnership,” said Subash Alias, CEO of Missouri Partnership. “Missouri’s location in the center of the U.S. provides a competitive advantage for companies like Optimas Solutions that need to get their products to customers quickly and efficiently. We are looking forward to watching them grow in our state.”

“During this pandemic, many of our companies have found innovative ways to respond and Optimas Solutions is a great example of changing the way it does business to help communities across the country,” said St. Louis County Executive Dr. Sam Page.
