Denso To Open Distribution Center Near Louisville

Posted on March 15, 2019

Denso Products and Services Americas Inc. is working to better serve and supply its North American customers with the opening of a new distribution center in Jeffersonville, Ind., in the summer of 2019.

It comes after opening another new distribution center in Rancho Cucamonga, Calif., in April 2018.

Denso says having the additional space near customers will reduce transit times and enhance operations, including management, control and execution. Combined the new centers in Indiana and California will help Denso achieve higher fill rates, manage efficient inventory, control cost and meet growth targets.

“With our distribution strategy, we are embracing innovation to build the future of mobility," says Kazu Yanagawa, vice president of Denso's Supply Chain Management Group. "The center in Jeffersonville is strategically located to help meet the rising demand for DENSO’s top-quality replacement auto parts in the Northeast and Midwest. This new distribution center gives us next-day ground transportation access to the entire region.”

The Indiana distribution center — located across the Ohio River from Louisville, Ky. — represents an investment of more than $9.5 million, when accounting for the lease and equipment. Of that, $3 million has been dedicated to technology, such as warehouse management software to control inventory, optimize supply chain management and enhance customer service.

Denso will add up to 50 new full-time jobs, including warehouse, management and administrative positions. The distribution center is in the River Ridge Commerce Center, a 6,000-acre business, industrial and technology hub alongside the Ohio River with multimodal connections to consumer markets nationwide.
