On June 18, industrial products and service provider Lewis-Goetz showcased its expansive inventory with an open house at its new facility in Wichita, KS.

The company said nearly 75 customers from central Kansas, Wichita, and northern Oklahoma attended the event, which introduced customers to Lewis-Goetz' entire line of product offerings, including lines that expand beyond the traditional grain business.

RBH Mill & Elevator also recently changed their name to Lewis-Goetz, so this event also served as an introduction to the name change.

Lewis-Goetz is owned by ERIKS, which was No. 15 on Industrial Distribution's 2014 Big 50 List.

Along with an additional 9,000 square feet of warehouse space, Lewis-Goetz says new facility in Wichita provides:

  • Increased size to allow for stock of additional items.
  • More space for hose testing, hose assembly, gasket production, Billco manufacturing and belt slitting and punching.  (This facility can cut belt to size and punch to spec in-house with quick turnaround times, and this expanded space and stock allows the company to improve upon its already impressive capabilities.)
  • A more centrally-located space, expanded dock area and convenient ramp to make pick-up even easier, regardless if it’s a single gasket or a 300-foot belt.

Preferred vendors and product specialists across the company were also present, as was Lewis-Goetz President and CEO Don Evans.
