Yokohama Tire Corporation has opened a new distribution centre near Dallas, Texas, USA.
The 430,000-square-foot distribution center in Wilmer, Texas, is located about 15 miles southeast of Dallas.
It will first be used to distribute Yokohama’s Original Equipment tyres, followed by passenger car/light truck and commercial truck/bus products in 2022.
“Building this modern facility in Wilmer was a strategic decision. It places us closer to our customer base, helping get our products to dealers much faster. That was one of our goals when deciding on the new location,” said Rick Alonzo, Yokohama Tire’s Vice President of Supply Chain & Logistics.
The new facility is LEED-certified, verifying its status as a best-in-class sustainable building.
Yokohama now has four full-service distribution centres in U.S. Wilmer, Texas; Chino, Calif.; Groveport, Ohio; and Auburn, Georgia.
