MILAN, Ohio (Dec. 19)—Freudenberg-NOK G.P. has doubled the size of its Milan distribution center—an $8 million investment—to 258,000 square feet in anticipation of an "aggressive growth schedule" for its Distributed Products Group. Freudenberg-NOK's Corteco automotive aftermarket business, Simrit industrial sealing unit and Dichtomatick North America O-ring and sealing products should double their combined sales of $265 million over the next five years, Freudenberg-NOK said in a release. The expansion was part of a two-phase plan. The second building expansion will add 110,000 square feet in 2007 with 100 employees hired over the next few years, the company said.
