The 25,000-square-foot facility will warehouse the entire line of ARB products, including ARB air lockers and compressors, bull bars, roof racks, Fridge Freezers, tents and awnings, recovery gear, old man emu suspension systems, safari snorkels and IPF driving lights.
“We’re very excited to be able to offer our customers on the East Coast and in Central and South America products in a much more timely and economic manner,” said Michael Tomczyk, general manager of ARB Jacksonville. “In many cases, shipping transit times that were taking five tosix business days have been reduced to one to two days, offering our customers much greater speed to market.”
During the next few months, ARB plans to increase inventories at the new Jacksonville distribution center to also service customers in the Northeastern U.S. ARB said it anticipates that the new distribution center will serve all ARB customers east of the Mississippi River by year’s end.
The ARB USA office and warehouse in Seattle will continue to stock the full range of ARB products, in addition to being the home for all of the ARB USA sales, marketing and technical assistance staff.
