Cequent Performance Products, a towing products manufacturer based in Plymouth, Mich., recently expanded its operations in Texas.
The new 180,000-square-feet distribution center in Dallas began shipping in May. The facility staffs more than 40 people and has dock doors to simultaneously accommodate up to 34 semi-trucks, according to Cequent.
“The new facility is designed to handle traffic to our customers in both North and South America,” said John Walsh, vice president of sales and marketing at Cequent. “We are excited to have its efficiency and strategic location as we continue to expand our products and customer base in the years to come.”
The 24/7 operation has in-house customer service representatives that can provide service to either coast in the U.S. and to Canada in as few as two days. It will serve Cequent as its principal warehouse for redistribution throughout the Western hemisphere, the company noted.
Craig Stull, who has been with Cequent since 1999, is the manager of the facility.
