AUSTIN, Texas – Univar Environmental Sciences announced the opening of a new Pro Center in Springfield, Va.

The new Pro Center location has a full service will call display area and built in classroom. The facility is located 15 miles southwest of Washington, D.C., and is convenient to Alexandria, Arlington and Fairfax.

Operating out of the new Springfield facility is Matt Markland, customer service representative, and John Singletary, outside sales representative. Emphasizing Univar’s dedication to the Virginia market, Singletary’s territory is concentrated only on Virginia.

The new 3,100-square-foot building has a full service retail-like showroom, where customers can shop for materials and see a variety of equipment and product displays. The new Pro Center also has a training area which will be utilized for industry seminars. The training area will also be available for use by customers for their specific training and meeting needs.

Trace McEuen, vice president and general manager for Univar, stated that “The new Pro Center was built for the purpose of providing better service and support to our customers on several different levels: the location is more centrally located to our customer base, the Pro Center allows the customer to see the multitude of products available to them in differing package sizes, and finally, the training area was designed to increase the number of seminar offerings in a comfortable environment.”

McEuen added, “The opening of this new Pro Center is just one of many of our recent investments in our facilities. Earlier this year we opened a new Pro Center in Charlotte, NC. In addition, we moved into a new facility in Chicago, IL, and we expanded our footprints in Cincinnati, OH and Miami, FL, by adding significant additional square footage. We are committed to our customers, and this industry.”

The Pro Center is located at 7200 Fullerton Rd., Suite H, Springfield, VA 22150. The phone number is (703) 440-1390, fax (703) 440-1393. Office hours are Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
