Troy, MI – Dayco, a global engine products and systems supplier for the automotive, industrial and aftermarket end-markets, will expand its customer service capabilities, implement new supply chain systems and consolidate its United States distribution locations into one, larger distribution centre in the Memphis, TN, area.

“Due to the continued growth in demand for our products and increased product complexity over the past several years, we have committed to this significant capital investment in order to deliver increased value to our customers,” said Ed Rammel, president of the North American and Australian Aftermarket for Dayco. “Our new distribution centre will provide adequate space to support customer requirements and future growth.”

Memphis is a major transportation hub and the new Dayco distribution centre will be in close proximity to key shipping companies. The 400,000-sq-ft facility will feature state-of-the-art distribution and logistics technology, including a new Tier 1 warehouse management system, which will improve shipping times while increasing Dayco’s fill rates.
