American Sales Company is an affiliate of Ahold USA and began its purchasing and distribution services in 1994. The company was then housed in a 200,000 square foot warehouse. In 2001, ASC expanded into its current state-of-the-art distribution center. The new facility is nearly three times the size of its original home and is located at the intersection of Walden and Pavement Roads in Lancaster, New York. ASC has quickly grown to become one of the largest distributors of health and beauty care items, seasonal items, and general merchandise in the United States, shipping about four million units per week.
