SAF-HOLLAND has opened a new 85,000-square-foot Aftermarket Parts Distribution Center in Cincinnati, Ohio, which will supply replacement parts to SAF-HOLLAND distribution centers and customers throughout the U.S., Mexico and Canada.
The location of the new Aftermarket Parts Distribution Center provides SAF-HOLLAND with the logistical capability to enhance efficiency and significantly reduce delivery times to distributors and end-users.
“We invested in this central distribution warehouse to improve our level of service to our distributors, and by doing so, improve the level of service to our end-customers,” said Carl Mesker, Vice President of SAF-HOLLAND’s North American Aftermarket Business Unit. “We already have world-class distributors. This warehouse allows us to now serve them as a world-class supplier.”
The new Aftermarket Parts Distribution Center stocks over 3,000 different parts, assemblies and service kits, and employs 11 service personnel. Located in close proximity to major Cincinnati freeways, and the Cincinnati International Airport (CVG), the facility features 21 dock high positions, with 21-foot ceiling clearances, to maximize the facility’s shipping and receiving efficiency.
“The new facility will provide more efficient parts delivery to our distribution network,” said Jason Heath, Marketing Manager for the company’s North American Aftermarket Business Unit. “Distributor order-to-delivery time is projected to improve considerably, thereby reducing the time customers will need to wait for parts.”
Orders placed on or after May 31 will be processed from the new distribution center. The exception will be Full Truck Load (FTL) orders, which will continue to be shipped directly from regional SAF-HOLLAND plants.
The new center is located at 426 Circle Freeway Drive, in Cincinnati, Ohio.
