The Mahle Aftermarket, Service Solutions division of Mahle Aftermarket Inc. has opened a satellite warehouse in the Los Angeles area to support customers on the West Coast and a distribution center in Burlington, Ontario, to expand service to Canadian customers.
The new satellite warehouse in Bell, Calif. enables the company to quickly fulfill orders to West Coast customers, according to Jon Douglas, general manager, Mahle Aftermarket Inc.
“The California warehouse is a great service upgrade for our customers because we now stock our most popular maintenance machines, service parts and accessories within a one day ground shipping area for nearby customers. In addition, this new warehouse allows us to fulfill even more orders nationwide after our main warehouse in York is closed for the day.”
The new California facility enables Mahle Aftermarket, Service Solutions to ship orders up until 6 p.m. (EST) to anywhere in the country.
Douglas says the Mahle Aftermarket Canada distribution center is another positive development for the company. “Our expansion into Canada enables us to reach more customers with our automotive maintenance equipment and it is equipment that we know can help technicians be more productive in their day-to-day duties.”
Mahle Aftermarket, Service Solutions was formerly known as the RTI Division of Mahle Aftermarket.
