Dayco Products LLC has opened a new distribution center in Memphis, Tenn. The 400,000-square-foot facility features state-of-the-art distribution and logistics technology, including a new Tier 1 warehouse management system, which will improve shipping times while increasing Dayco’s fill rates.
"Following months of research, Dayco is excited to announce the opening of our new United States distribution center in Memphis, Tenn.," says John Bohenick, CEO for Dayco. "As a major transportation hub centrally located in the United States, Memphis is the best location for our distribution center. The new location gives Dayco the ability to provide a seamless service experience for our North American customers, from manufacturing to delivery.
"We would also like to thank Memphis city leaders for the continued support during this transition. Dayco looks forward to a long-term partnership with the city leaders, citizens and businesses of Memphis.”
The Memphis facility, located at 3530 East Raines Road, will employ nearly 200, and will be used to distribute all of Dayco’s products in North America. The center also will generate $3.6 million in new tax revenue.
In June, Dayco announced plans to expand its customer service capabilities, implement new supply chain systems and consolidate its U.S. distribution locations into one, larger distribution center in the Memphis area. Dayco anticipates initial product shipments by the third quarter of 2015, with the goal of shipping all products from the Memphis location by the end of the calendar year.
