Cequent Retools Mich. Facility for Distribution
Cequent Performance Products (CPP) announced the transition of its Tekonsha, Mich., facility to a regional distribution center.
According to a press release, the location currently houses the company’s engineering and product development teams focused on automotive electrical and braking products. The 75,000-square-foot facility will take the place of the Huntington, Ind., location and add more than 13 jobs to the area.
“Tekonsha is an ideal location to serve as our newest distribution center,” says Justin Schuhardt, director of global logistics. “Combined with the opening of our Dallas, Texas, master distribution center, we are in a great position to serve customers throughout the Midwest region.”
Built in 2001, the Tekonsha facility will continue to be the center of development for automotive and braking research. It will join five other CPP North American distribution centers with its new warehousing capabilities.
