Cooper to Open New Distribution Center in Mississippi

Posted on February 12, 2018

Cooper Tire & Rubber Co. will open a new 1-million-square-foot warehouse in Byhalia, Miss. The site is expected to open in the fall of 2018.

The warehouse, which Cooper will lease, will be the tire maker's largest distribution center in the U.S., and it will be surrounded by Cooper's three U.S. tire manufacturing facilities in Findlay, Ohio; Texarkana, Ark., and Tupelo, Miss.

Cooper says the warehouse will help the company consolidate and distribute its products directly to customers, as well as to its regional distribution centers.

The Byhalia warehouse, which is currently under construction, also has the capacity to expand an additional 400,000 square feet.

“This new facility will enhance our logistics infrastructure, which supports our efforts to offer exceptional service to our customers by helping us get tires to them when and where they want them,” says Bob Sager, director of supply chain for Cooper. “This facility is a complement to our current U.S. distribution network that includes six regional distribution centers and three plant manufacturing warehouses, adding to our capability to be flexible and responsive.”

Cooper is also opening a new distribution center dedicated to its truck bus radial tire business, in San Bernadino, Calif.
