CARDONE Industries, a global leader in the automotive parts industry, announced plans to build a new, state-of-the-art distribution center in Harlingen, Texas, near the company’s current core processing facilities. Construction of the new facility is expected to begin in January 2018 and to be finished by December 2018.
The new distribution center is intended to support growing production at CARDONE’s manufacturing facilities, and the building will be constructed with the capacity for future expansion, as needed. CARDONE expects the new distribution center to create hundreds of new jobs in the Harlingen area.
“As CARDONE continues to grow, we need to augment our distribution and logistics capabilities, in order to handle our increasing volume and the growing number of product lines,” said CEO Stan Gowisnock. “Also, having this new distribution center in close proximity to our South manufacturing facilities will help us get those products in our customers’ hands quicker than ever before.”
Along with its facilities in Philadelphia, Texas, Los Angeles, Canada and Mexico, CARDONE added operations in Vancouver, Phoenix, Seattle, Toronto, Spain and China through its recent acquisition of ADP Distributors and Rotomaster on November 20, 2017. Gowisnock continued, “As we continue to strategically expand our business, having robust production and distribution facilities across the country will provide us with outstanding flexibility for product fulfillment and improve our overall efficiency.”
