CITY OF INDUSTRY, Calif. (Oct. 8, 2014) — Aftermarket brake components and systems maker Centric Parts has transferred its brake pad assembly and kitting functions from its Carson, Calif. facility to its recently-acquired 100,000-sq.-ft. warehouse and office space at its City of Industry campus.
The brake pad assembly and kitting functions will take up a portion of the warehouse, according to the company. This move more closely positions final assembly and shipping, Centric Parts said, and allows the vacated Carson space to be used for the company's continually expanding caliper remanufacturing program.
“The new building in City of Industry is the perfect place to locate our pad assembly and kitting operations,” said Sal Bora, Centric Parts director of operations. “Industry is where our warehousing and shipping occur, so logistically it makes sense.”
The new brake pad operations will include pad assembly, hardware kit assembly, packaging and shipping for a wide range of Centric brake pads, the firm said. Those include the lines of Posi Quiet Semi-Metallic, Ceramic and Extended Wear, Centric 100-Series OE friction, Centric Premium Metallic and Ceramic, StopTech Street Performance and Centric Fleet Performance and C-Tek Metallic and Ceramic friction.
Additionally, the company's City of Industry campus will continue to handle sales and customer service, as well as shipping and receiving of finished goods.
More information on the full line of Centric Parts brake and clutch components and systems is available on its website or by calling 800-758-3004.
