DENVILLE, N.J. (Sept. 8, 2005) — Alliance Tire USA has opened its first U.S. warehouse in Springfield, Ill., to house inventory for the company's North American customers.
“This is a very exciting development for us and allows Alliance and our customers the opportunity to ensure that we can put Alliance tires on equipment at short notice,” said Manjri Shah, manager of Alliance Tire USA in Denville. “Many customers, especially original equipment manufacturers, have been eager to see a warehouse to ensure a quick way to fill surprise needs.”
Ms. Shah said the company chose Springfield for its central location because of easy access to both north-south and east-west interstate highways. Alliance's customers will continue working through their normal supply channels to fill container loads. The warehouse is for emergency needs only, she noted.
The company is also soliciting suggestions from its customers on tread designs and sizes that they would like to have close at hand, according to Shaul Nuri, Alliance's manager of sales and marketing for North America.
“This warehouse reflects our commitment to customer service and the North American market,” said Alliance President Joseph Anglister.
