ANDERSON, Ind. (Feb. 10, 2017) — Tire importer/wholesaler Sutong China Tire Resources Inc. (SCTR) has purchased a 360,000-sq.-ft. structure in Anderson that it plans to use for a distribution center.
The facility, former General Motors/Delco Remy factory, will absorb distribution from a smaller, existing warehouse in Anderson and another in Houston, SCTR said, as it ramps up toward mid-year. The facility also will provide Houston-based SCTR with needed space for future growth and provide greater distribution efficiencies.
Anderson is a city of about 65,000 located adjacent to Interstate 69 northeast of Indianapolis. The company's existing facility in Anderson houses tire-wheel assembly for lawn and garden and ST trailer tires for independent dealers, mass merchandisers and for OE trailer manufactures.
SCTR will maintain one warehouse in Houston and another in Brampton, Ontario, for the Canadian market.
