Del-Nat warehouse to open next week

May 13, 2002

Del-Nat Tire Corp.'s new warehouse in Memphis, Tenn., will be up and running by the end of next week, says Dennis Cates, Del-Nat's vice president of marketing.

The 120,000-square-foot facility was purchased earlier this month.

It brings Del-Nat's total warehouse capacity up to just under 500,000 square feet and will be able to hold nearly 230,000 Delta, National and Akuret brand units at full capacity.

The private brander distributes out of one facility right now.

Del-Nat brands enjoy 3.5% of the domestic replacement passenger tire market, according to Modern Tire Dealer research.
