Mahle adds two warehouses

Posted on August 25, 2014

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.

Mahle Aftermarket, Service Solutions specializes in the development, manufacturing and distribution of automotive maintenance equipment, including air conditioning service, fluid exchange and nitrogen tire inflation systems. For more information, visit www.mahle-aftermarket.com

Using 'Return on Sales' Measurement to Guide Purchases

Let’s look at two hypothetical tire and service stores, in the same town, a few miles from each other. Both stores do about $1.2 million in sales with about a third of their business in tires, the rest in service. Both see business is up and getting even better. It’s time to hire another salesperson. My advice to one of the owners is, “Go ahead, you need the extra help,” to which he thanks me for my expert opinion. To the other owner, I say, “It will make you lose money,” and he quickly tells me how wrong I am.

Anne Forristall Luke believes as the USTMA better explains the part it plays in consumer safety, consumers will be more likely to ask what part they need to play to keep travel safe.
