April 19, 2017—Fiat Chrysler Automobile (FCA) US celebrated the official opening on April 18 of a new Mopar Parts Distribution Center (PDC) in Winchester, Va.
The 400,000-square-foot facility represents a $12.2 million investment by FCA US and over 70 jobs over two shifts. This is also the first of two new Mopar Parts Distribution Centers to open in the U.S. this year.
“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 and director of the Chrysler department.
The new facility will handle more than 50,000 total part numbers distributed over 200 FCA US dealerships, located primarily in the Mid-Atlantic region. It will ship approximately 9.2 million pieces annually.
