Wegmann automotive USA Inc. is moving into a larger distribution facility to serve its West Coast customers. The company says the location in Phoenix will help improve fill rates and delivery services.

The new facility is scheduled to open May 1, 2017.

Its location — 1 mile from Interstate 10 — will provide easier access for logistics partners. Plus it will offer increased inventory capacity, a modern warehouse management system and faster delivery services to the market.

The transition from the existing Sparks, Nev., distribution center to the new location in Phoenix will begin April 1. Wegmann encourages its West Coast customers to review and adjust product inventory levels due to the transition process.

Between April 17, 2017, and May 5, 2017, standard West Coast delivery times may be affected and orders may experience a longer than normal delivery window because shipments will originate from the company's Tennessee warehouse.

Customers are encouraged to contact their Wegmann automotive sales representative or customer service representative for additional details. For general information, visit www.wegmann-automotive.com or call (615) 916-3791.
