The 39,000-square-foot North American Aftermarket Distribution Center in Sturtevant, Wis., is going to offer three times the capacity of the company’s current location in Racine, and provide dedicated aftermarket resources and shipping flexibility. The new facility is adjacent to the I-94 Corridor between Milwaukee and Chicago, and is just six miles west of Twin Disc’s Global Manufacturing Headquarters in Racine.
According to the release, the state-of-the-art facility has increased capacity and storage racking, uses advanced equipment including a Vertical Lift Module (VLM) for small components and applies lean strategies to create exceptional value for Twin Disc customers.
“The North American Aftermarket Distribution Center will be a much-needed hub for stocking and shipping all of our spare parts,” said Jorge Colorado, director, aftersales & service of Twin Disc. “This added distribution space will improve and streamline our aftersales operations and provide a greater customer experience by increasing our efficiency.”
Allowing Twin Disc to meet growing distribution and aftermarket demand, the new distribution center opened on May 14 and the company expects operations to be running at peak performance by June 3.
