The Carlstar Group LLC has opened a new, larger distribution facility in Fontana, Calif.
The 320,000 square foot facility offers more than 70% additional storage than the company's previous west coast operations offered. It will help streamline company’s customer operations and will help to ensure ontime delivery, order accuracy and access to a broader range of the Carlstar product portfolio from one location.
In addition, Carlstar says the expanded dock capabilities and a larger trailer yard will enable more efficient logistics and handling.
“We are extremely excited about the investment in the Fontana, California Distribution Center and this great addition to our global network,” says John Salvatore, the company's CEO. “The Production Street distribution center represents another major investment by The Carlstar Group in our domestic capabilities and footprint. What’s even more exciting is how quickly we were able to bring this site up. It’s now fully operational and will service all of our west coast customer operations with a larger footprint and expanded capacity.”
This facility will supply the following brands and products:
- Carlisle-branded products in our specialty trailer, powersports, agriculture, and outdoor power equipment segments;
- ITP-branded tires and wheels for ATVs, UTVs and side-by-side vehicles; and
- Cragar-, Blackrock- and Unique-branded aftermarket styled wheels.
“The opening of the Production Street location officially consolidates all staff, inventory and materials from the previous Vintage, CA facility,” says Salvatore. “We were fortunate to find a larger, more modern space to help grow ours and our customer’s businesses, and be roughly 5 miles from our previous location. Our customers and employees are both benefiting from this fabulous new Distribution Center.”
The new facility is located at: 10730 Production Street Fontana, CA 92337.
