Kumho Prepares for 2 New U.S. Warehouses

Feb. 14, 2023

In April Kumho Tire USA plans to open a distribution warehouse in Dallas, Texas. It's the first of two facilities planned in the next three years.

The tiremaker says the 400,000 square-foot facility will have the capacity to hold 540,000 tires.

“The strategically placed warehouse will allow Kumho to operate at a higher level of efficiency to ensure that customers are provided an elite level of service and access to the Kumho products that they need”, says Shawn Denlein, president of sales and marketing for Kumho.

The new warehouse initially will service 15 states in the Midwest and in the southern half of the country. Kumho says it is "the first step of the overall expansion."

Kumho says it is finalizing the next step, with plans to open a warehouse in Franklin, La., in April of 2026. It will cover 350,000 square-feet and will have a capacity to hold 470,000 tires.
