FDP Virginia expands, will increase disc, drum brake capacity
FDP Virginia Inc. has announced the opening of a new facility adjacent to its existing operation in Tappahannock, Va. The two combined facilities have 600,000 square feet of space.
The new facility was purchased from Canon USA and will be called Mount Landing Road. It has 25,000 square feet of “Class A” office space, 15,000 square feet of technical research, 125,000 square feet of manufacturing and 110,000 square feet of warehouse along with 36 loading docks and nine overhead cranes.
“Mount Landing Road will be used to handle our rapidly expanding brake friction business as well as provide room for entry into new product lines” says Jack Carney president and CEO of FDP Virginia.
“We are proud to be expanding our research and manufacturing operations, and creating more jobs with products made in the USA.”
Carney says the Mount Landing Road facility will include a new proprietary automated high capacity manufacturing system for disc brakes, and allow changes for a 45 minute total time process for the production of drum brakes.
FDP Virginia Inc. has been providing U.S.-made OE and aftermarket products for 30 years. For more information visit www.FDPbrakes.com.
