US Motor Works Establishes Liberty, Missouri, Distribution Hub

US Motor Works, a manufacturer and distributor of after-market automotive parts, plans to invest $19.2 million and establish a distribution center at Heartland Meadows Industrial Park in Liberty, Missouri.

The new 167,000-square-foot facility will allow US Motor Works to centralize distribution, expand capabilities, and shorten delivery times. Operations are scheduled for January 2024.

“Being centrally located in the U.S. and specifically in the Kansas City area, our new facility will be three days away from 90% of the country by truck,” said Gil Benjamin, President and CEO of US Motor Works. “This new distribution center will not only allow us to serve our customers better, but it will also allow our products and brands to continue growing without space limitations.”

US Motor Works provides automotive and heavy-duty engine parts and components. The company manufactures a complete line of water pumps and fan clutches. US Motor Works currently operates in six North American facilities.

“Missouri continues to be a top location for businesses that need to get their products to consumers quickly,” noted Subash Alias, CEO of Missouri Partnership. “US Motor Works is a global automotive manufacturer with a large network of customers, and having this facility here in Missouri will help them maintain their high standards of excellent customer service. Logistics and automotive manufacturing are two of the state’s largest industries, and we are excited to welcome US Motor Works to Missouri.”

“The Kansas City region continues to attract major industrial investment, with companies like US Motor Works choosing the area as they strive to serve their customers better and faster than ever before,” added Chris Gutierrez, President of KC SmartPort. “With more than 70 million square feet of industrial development in the last ten years and more than 190,000 skilled workers, Kansas City has established itself as a leading center for distribution operations within North America.”
