YORK, Pa. (Aug. 22, 2014) — Engine components and systems manufacturer MAHLE Aftermarket Inc. has opened a satellite warehouse in the Los Angeles area to better support its customers on the U.S. west coast.
The new warehouse, located in Bell, Calif., will enable the company to fulfill orders quickly for customers in the area, the firm said.
“The California warehouse is a great service upgrade for our customers because we now stock our most popular maintenance machines, service parts and accessories within a one-day ground shipping area for nearby customers,” said Jon Douglas, general manager, MAHLE Aftermarket. “In addition, this new warehouse allows us to fulfill even more orders nationwide after our main warehouse in York is closed for the day.”
In addition, the firm said it is now stocking inventory at its new MAHLE Aftermarket Canada distribution center in Burlington, Ontario, to expand service to customers in Canada.
Mr. Douglas said the new Canada facility is another positive development.
“Our expansion into Canada enables us to reach more customers with our automotive maintenance equipment,” Mr. Douglass said. “And it is equipment that we know can help technicians be more productive in their day-to-day duties.”
