In early 2016, Ultimation Industries launched a range of “quick ship” products for sale through their own online store as well as on Amazon. The venture was such a success that the company recently opened a new fulfillment center in Sterling Heights, Michigan to handle the growth. E-commerce currently makes up nearly 50% of the Ultimation’s business.
The expansion allows Ultimation to offer a greater range of products, according to Fulfillment Center Manager Kali Crescent.
The new facility also provides additional space for fulfillment operations, including warehousing, shipping and assembly, as well as additional staff.
The Sterling Heights facility is only a few miles from the company’s flagship operation in Roseville, Michigan. Ultimation is a long-time Macomb County business, operating in Roseville for more than 30 years. The company added floor space and a building extension in 2000 and relocated to a larger facility in 2015. Additional space was acquired in 2019.
Ultimation was recognized in 2020 and 2022 as one of Inc. 5000’s fastest growing private companies in America. Ultimation was also named a 2022 Michigan 50 Companies to Watch by Michigan Celebrates Small Business.
