MAUMEE, Ohio (Aug. 7, 2012)— Dana Holding Corp. said it will open two distribution centers in China and Mexico that will aim to help increase product availability, according to the company.
The centers will be located in Toluca, Mexico, and Wuxi, Jiangsu Province, China, and will help the company improve its delivery times as well as offer additional aftermarket customers support, according to Dana.
With the addition of these two centers, the company totals 17 aftermarket distribution centers globally.
The Mexico facility, which opened in July, supplies on-highway after market products. While the China facility, which is expected to open this month, will begin with delivering off-highway products. However, they expect to begin stocking light vehicle components following the opening.
Dana added the distribution facilities to help curb demand for parts, according to Bill Gryzenia, vice president of Dana's aftermarket business.
Earlier this year the company announced it was opening a facility in Gyor, Hungary, to aid in the company's efforts to establish a global distribution network.
