FCA US Opens Mopar Distribution Hub In Winchester, Virginia

FCA US opened its new, $12.2 million, 400,000-plus square-foot Mopar Parts Distribution Center in Winchester, Virginia. The company plans to create more than 70 jobs over two shifts.

"We are celebrating our 80th anniversary in 2017, and throughout the years customer satisfaction has been and continues to be the Mopar brand's No. 1 priority," said Pietro Gorlier, Head of Parts and Service (Mopar), FCA - Global. "This new Parts Distribution Center builds upon our mission, allowing us to more quickly and efficiently serve our dealers and customers, delivering the parts they need, when they need them. This is our 22nd PDC in North America and we'll continue to expand our distribution network as the parts and accessories business keeps growing."

"Today's opening adds more than 70 jobs to the Virginia economy and makes the Mopar brand's delivery of parts to dealers and consumers more efficient. FCA continues to grow, which is a constant reminder that the auto loans were a great investment," said Norwood Jewell, UAW Vice President.

The new facility will handle more than 50,000 total part numbers distributed to over 200 FCA US dealerships, located primarily in the Mid-Atlantic region. It will ship approximately 9.2 million pieces annually. The Winchester operation expands the brand's current distribution network to 22 facilities in North America, with more than 50 PDCs (including joint ventures) in operation worldwide.

In addition to the Winchester PDC, FCA US has also announced a $10.4 million investment in a new Mopar PDC located in Romulus, Michigan. That facility will encompass 500,000 square feet and more than 100 workers. Construction is currently in progress on the Metro Detroit facility, with a projected opening in 2017 fourth quarter.
