Xpress Global Systems, LLC (XGS) is pleased to announce the opening of a new 68,500 square foot service center in Lakeland, FL. The new facility allows XGS to more efficiently serve a greater footprint in Florida.

"XGS remains committed to efficiency and growth in 2018 and beyond, and we're happy to add the Lakeland facility to our portfolio." said Darrel Harris, the CEO of XGS.

With decades of experience serving the transportation needs of the floorcovering industry, XGS has a strong track record of success in handling a wide range of flooring surfaces, including carpet, hardwood, laminate, vinyl, tile, and rugs.

"Analysis showed us that a much larger, more modern facility in Lakeland would provide better service to our valued customers and allow us to improve efficiencies," continues Harris. "The Lakeland facility fits well with our expansion plans in the Florida market and beyond."

XGS, which began in 1986 as a long-haul shipper for the carpet industry, employs over 600 in 31 facilities around the country.
