Weisser Distributing to expand to Sioux Falls

Oct. 4, 2018

Weisser Distributing is out of space in Tea and adding a warehouse in Sioux Falls.

The fast-growing company that primarily sells online in a variety of industries has bought a 40,000-square-foot warehouse at 921 E. Amidon St.

“It’s been a long time coming,” president Eric Weisser said. “The warehouse market in Sioux Falls, for what we were looking for, doesn’t have a lot of availability. Just when we were going to start building, this building became available.”

The space previously stored health care products for Compass Health.

Weisser will mostly keep automotive products there.

“Mainly the things we’re shipping to the Amazon distribution centers,” Weisser said. “We’ll be receiving a ton of product and shipping a bunch of product back out.”

He plans to add eight to 12 employees there but said the Sioux Falls location could grow. Adjacent office space will become available early next year, “so after that we may have some executive-level people move in there,” Weisser said.

“It gives us a little more access to the Sioux Falls labor market and gives our employees more options.”

There’s a 45,000-square-foot warehouse at the company’s headquarters in Tea and 50,000 square feet leased at Nordica Warehouses. There’s also a new warehouse in Las Vegas that handles mostly international business.

Weisser plans to start operations in the new Sioux Falls warehouse in the next month and a half. The 3-acre property includes enough space to add 60,000 square feet of storage space.

“That’s our road map maybe in the next 18 months or so,” Weisser said. “We’ll be looking at whether we want to build a megacomplex somewhere or if we want to add to this complex.”
