The Commerce facility has 16 loading docks and offers around-the-clock security. The services provided include: pallet display pack out; full POP display pack out, kitting, rework, labeling, sorting and bundling; blister, cold seal, heat and IR sealing; assembly for products, packaging and displays.

With the addition of the Commerce facility, Bay Cities' facilities now consist of 650,000 square feet of combined space, over 96 loading docks and over 20 production lines. "This brand-new facility in Commerce, just minutes away from our Pico Rivera headquarters, will ensure efficiency and add to our outstanding ability to execute and deliver high-volume programs throughout the Southern California region. Technologically-advanced capabilities ensure speed and accuracy in our expanding pack out and fulfillment facilities," said Kirkpatrick.
