Dayco Opens Distribution Center in Memphis
July 21, 2015—Dayco announced today it has completed its previously-announced investment to improve customer service by opening a new distribution center in Memphis, Tenn.
The 400,000-square-foot facility features state-of-the-art distribution and logistics technology, including a new Tier 1 warehouse management system that will improve shipping times while increasing Dayco’s industry-leading fill rates.
"Following months of research, Dayco is excited to announce the opening of our new United States distribution center in Memphis, Tenn. As a major transportation hub centrally located in the United States, Memphis is the best location for our distribution center. The new location gives Dayco the ability to provide a seamless service experience for our North American customers, from manufacturing to delivery," said John Bohenick, CEO for Dayco. "We would also like to thank Memphis city leaders for the continued support during this transition. Dayco looks forward to a long-term partnership with the city leaders, citizens and businesses of Memphis.”
The new facility will employ nearly 200 people and will be used to distribute all of Dayco’s products in North America.
