Cequent Opens Up ‘Master Distribution Center’
Towing product supplier Cequent Performance Products (CPP), a division of TriMas Corp., recently expanded operations in Dallas.
According to a press release, a new state-of-the-art facility began shipping in May of this year and employs more than 40 people.
Cequent said that The 24/7 operation, with in-house customer service representatives, can provide service to either coast in the United States and to Canada in as few as two days. It will serve CPP as its principal warehouse for redistribution throughout the Western hemisphere.
“The new facility is designed to handle traffic to our customers in both North and South America,” says John Walsh, vice president of sales and marketing at Cequent. “We are excited to have its efficiency and strategic location as we continue to expand our products and customer base in the years to come.”
The facility has over 180,000 square feet and dock doors to accommodate up to 34 semi-trucks simultaneously. It also uses a radio frequency tracking system for accurate order selection.
The energy efficient building opened on May 20 when the first package shipped. Craig Stull, who has been with the company since October 1999, is the facility manager.
