SOUTHAVEN, MS - February 15, 2008 - ScanSource, Inc., {Nasdaq: SCSC}, a leading international value-added distributor of specialty technology products, held the official grand opening of its new 600,000-square-foot North American distribution center in Southaven, MS today. Accompanied by Greg Davis, Mayor of Southaven, Mike Baur, ScanSource, Inc. CEO, and Shelby McCloud, vice president of warehouse operations, cut the customary ribbon to signify the official grand opening.

The distribution center, which is nearly double the size of the former facility in Memphis, TN, features a technologically advanced “picking, packing and shipping” conveyor system with 40 lanes, 30,000 square feet of system integration space, greater warehousing capacity, and enhanced storage space – not to mention a few amenties for ScanSource’s dedicated employees, including a gym and reading room. The innovative facility even includes a trucker’s lounge, where suppliers can take a break between deliveries.

“We are excited to have our employees and community members participate in the official grand opening,” said Baur. “Our distribution center is truly state-of-the-art. We have been fully functioning in Southaven since December and are thrilled with the facility – from improved productivity, enhanced efficiency and overall employee satisfaction.”

The new location is even closer to the Memphis airport and major freight carrier hubs, ensuring continued exceptional Fed-Ex and UPS delivery times ScanSource, Inc. resellers have come to rely on.
