Who We Are
Established in 1946, Mercedes Distribution Center (MDC) is a family-owned, New York business located in the thriving Brooklyn Navy Yard. We currently employ a team of 150 people and occupy 250,000 square feet of warehouse and studio space within a one million square-foot building. Our concrete and steel, multi-floor structure is fully alarmed and monitored around-the-clock by security and patrols. The facility is strategically accessible via major trucking terminals and courier services, including UPS, FedEx, the USPS, and the metropolitan area’s three international airports.
One of the prime reasons for MDC’s continued success has been its ability to evolve and adapt to the ever-changing fulfillment, inventory management and warehousing needs of our clients across a range of industries and market niches.
In the early years, government work was the bulk of our business. In the 1960s and 1970s, publishing and print distribution were core to our offerings. In the late 1970s through the mid-1990s, we serviced publishers, home goods and glassware companies.
In the late 1990s to 2000s, MDC recognized the huge potential of e-commerce and pivoted its business to accommodate the needs of fast-growing brands. We helped launch Gilt Groupe and scaled operations to keep pace with the booming flash sales marketplace. Today, we serve leading companies focused on e-commerce in various industries ranging from fashion and beauty products, to fitness and sporting equipment.
Through our proven expertise, MDC enables businesses to scale their operations quickly and keep pace with growth. From order to unboxing, we offer the most advanced warehousing, fulfillment and shipping solutions to ensure the best customer experience is consistently achieved.
Through our state of the art facility, cutting-edge technology, committed personnel and decades of experience, MDC is well-positioned to address the most complex fulfillment, inventory management and warehousing needs associated with today’s emerging startups and premium brands.
We look forward to working with you!
