Kumho opens tire distribution center
Kumho Tire USA has opened a tire distribution center in Ellenwood, Ga., a suburb of Atlanta.
The 120,000-square-foot facility "will enable us to get tires to all of our southeastern dealers, even those in southern Florida, within 24 hours after they place their orders," says David Hudrlik, Kumho's vice president and director of sales.
Kumho also has distribution centers in Columbus, Ohio; Memphis, Tenn.; Dallas, Texas; and Fontana, Calif. In April, the company dedicated a new 50,000-square-foot technical center in Akron, Ohio.
Kumho also hired three regional sales managers.
* Dave Salvione will handle Kumho's Pacific Northwest Territory.
* Jerry Bumbaugh will supervise a new region that covers business in Colorado, Nevada, Utah, Wyoming and northern California.
* Rodney Hughes will lead a new region that covers Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi and West Tennessee.
