Yokohama Tire Corp. announced recently that it will move its Western Region Distribution center from its 380,000-square-foot warehouse facility in Fullerton, California, to a newly constructed 658,000-square-foot facility in Chino, California, about 22 miles away.
The move is expected to be completed late this year.
“In addition to infrastructure advantages, we will be breaking ground with new processes for servicing our customers, filling orders, and distributing inventory throughout our four distribution centers in the country," said Tom Masuguchi, YTC’s chief strategy officer. "The new facility will be the cornerstone of the future of our U.S. distribution network.”
The new Western Region Distribution Center, located at 16388 Fern Avenue in the county of San Bernardino, is designed to hold tires at more than twice the capacity of the existing warehouse and bring together both full-time and contract labor. It will be used to distribute Yokohama’s products consisting of passenger car/truck, commercial truck and OTR (Off-the-Road) tires.
