Chapin, S.C. - United Sporting Companies announced today a plan to consolidate its Dayton, Ohio distribution facility into its existing facility in Bellefontaine, OH.

The consolidation will reduce costs, increase efficiencies, and optimize the utilization of the Bellefontaine facility. The closure of the Dayton operation is expected to be complete by September 2018.
