Advantage Truck Accessories and Meyer Distributing add new sites

Nov 15, 2012

Tonneau cover manufacturer Advantage Truck Accessories Inc. is moving from its base in Elkhart, Ind., to Ann Arbor, Mich. to be closer to parent company THI Corp.’s main manufacturing and engineering facility.

“This move will allow us greater collaboration with THI and become more innovative while responding to engineering and quality issues more quickly,” said Jeff Fink, general manager of Advantage Truck Accessories.

Beginning Dec. 1, all shipments and customer pickups will be made from the company’s new address: 277 Plaza Dr., Ann Arbor, MI, 48108.

Also, setting up an additional distribution point, automotive specialty products distributor Meyer Distributing Inc., Jasper, Ind., announced plans to add a cross-dock in Indianapolis. The cross-dock will have a direct feed from Meyer’s distribution center in Jasper, according to a Meyer Distributing press release.

“Indiana is the crossroads of America, so it’s a natural fit in our quickly expanding logistical network. It will provide next-day access to a larger range of increasingly diverse customers, all the while improving our overall carbon footprint leveraging our tractor trailer fleet to its fullest extent,” said Fred Sermersheim, fleet manager of Meyer Logistics.
