WACO, TX (KXXV) -

Sherwin-Williams celebrated the opening of its new distribution service center in Waco on Thursday.

According to the company, on a daily basis, 65 tractor-trailer trucks roll out of the 615,000 square feet facility. 

Sherwin-Williams had a smaller distribution center in Waco, which was replaced with the new state-of-the-art facility similar in size to 10 and a half football fields.

Director of Corporate Communications Mike Conway said Waco is one of the best locations in the nation.

"All of the roads come in and out of Waco and it's near airports so it's a great opportunity when our paint is manufactured from our paint plant, to reach here and then to reload the trucks and out they go," Conway said.

City Manager Wiley Stem who attended the ribbon-cutting said the business has a positive impact to the city.

"It expands our tax base. It gives more opportunities for workers to have jobs," Stem said. "That's always good for the community."

The $39 million expansion has brought 80 additional jobs to the city.

There are currently 10 open positions at the new distribution service center, which applicants can apply for online

"It's very exciting for Waco. We have a lot of positive things going on. To have a company of a stature, like Sherwin-Williams invest $39 million in Waco, that's big," Stem said.

Conway said there is more room for expansion at the 14-acre property.
