Our History

A M-C Warehouses (AMC) Began in the warehousing business in 1968 with a 10,000 sq. ft. building. Our largest customer was General Foods for whom we stored and custom pulled orders for their customers.

By 1970, AMC had a total of 45,000sq. ft. and was providing custom distribution services for several food manufacturers.

In 1971, AMC moved to a 60,00 sq. ft. warehouse with General Foods and H .J. Hines as our largest customers. AMC also had several smaller companies using our services. During the early 70’s AMC began searching for a more consistent customer base.

In 1978, AMC began negotiations with Brown & Williams Tobacco Co. for their warehousing needs. That was the beginning of building a stable customer base. At this time AMC picked up another 50,000 sq. ft. building… giving AMC a total of 110,000 sq. ft. of warehousing space. Shortly thereafter, Lorillard Tobacco, Liggett & Myers Tobacco and American Tobacco companies joined our now stable customer base. By this time, AMC owned and operated it’s own fleet of trucks.

In 1982, AMC designed and supervised the construction of a 250,00 sq. ft. warehouse consisting of 200,000 sq. ft. of ambient and 50,000 sq. ft. of refrigerated space.

By 1983, AMC began doing business with Skaggs Alpha Beta (a large retail grocery chain) in addition to the four major tobacco companies and several other companies.

By 1987, the warehouse facility had been completely remodeled containing 190,000 sq. ft. of refrigerated and 60,000 sq. ft. of ambient space. AMC had an employee base of one hundred and twenty (120) employees operating eighteen (18) hours per day six (6) days per week. This included a daily work load for receiving and shipping consisting of 80,000 cases per day. AMC picked orders for over eighty (80) large grocery stores, loading forty-five (45) trailers loads of picked store orders from 5,500 SKUs daily.

In 1990, AMC acquired an additional warehouse with 32,000 sq. ft. of freezer space.

In 1992, AMC designed and co-subcontracted an expansion of 78,000 sq. ft. of freezer space to the recently acquired warehouse making a total 110,000 sq. ft. of freezer space. This gave us a total of 360,250 sq. ft. of operating warehouse space.

In 1994, AMC began warehousing for R.J. Reynolds Tobacco and the following year Phillip Morris Tobacco joined our customer base. During the same perio, AMC expanded our truck fleet to eleven (11) tractors and a daily delivery radius of three hundred (300) miles.

In 1996, AMC be working with a major food service processor as a national distribution center. During this period, AMC supported all raw and finished goods material handling. This included 20,000 cases picked daily with a throughput of 1,000,000 pounds per week.

In the 2000’s AMC has continued to develop technology driven services to give our customers access to warehousing reports via a website. AMC expanded our transportation services into Louisiana and Oklahoma. AMC developed a freight consolidation/cross dock operation for a national restaurant company that encompasses deliveries to over twenty-five (25) food distributors. A partnership has been developed with a freight consolidator and a high volume cross dock operation has been created for the freezer/refrigeration clients.

In 2008 Senior Manager Robert Phillips and Vice President Monty Barnett became owners of AMC Warehouses. Since then the company has increased its customer base and has reached close to 20 percent increase in revenue.

AMC currently has a customer base of over 150. Each customer has their own customized distribution service.

AMC’s business philosophy is that each customer has individual warehousing needs. AMC custom designs each account to meet the customer’s needs, not ours.
