Cooper Tire & Rubber Company Eyes Whiteland, Indiana for Regional Distribution Hub
According to company officials the facility, just minutes from the company’s current Franklin, Ind. warehouse, will replace the Franklin site with all employees expected to transition to the new location. The Whiteland facility is currently under construction and is expected to open in early 2021. It will provide increased capacity for product storage and a modern design for enhanced efficiencies.
“We are excited to build a larger regional distribution center in this key location to ensure we continue to provide our customers with exceptional service through enhanced logistics capabilities,” said Mike Calabro, Executive Director, North America Supply Chain for Cooper Tire.
“Further, the dedicated workforce at the facility will remain in place, meaning we will be able to quickly transition to this new location with no interruption in the timely delivery of our products to customers,” he added.
The Whiteland distribution center will be one of six regional distribution centers operated by Cooper in the U.S. The company’s North America distribution network also includes three plant manufacturing warehouses and two mixing warehouses.
With headquarters in Findlay, Ohio, Cooper Tire & Rubber Company is the parent company of a global family of companies that specializes in the design, manufacture, marketing and sale of passenger car, light truck, medium truck, motorcycle and racing tires.
