Chrysler Group today announced it is opening Mopar parts distribution centers in Argentina and Brazil.

“We are opening Mopar operations in Argentina and Brazil in order to further support our network of dealers and customers in these growing markets,” said Pietro Gorlier, Mopar CEO. “We will continue to look for strategic opportunities to provide even more support for our customers around the world.”

The parts distribution center in Argentina is located in General Rodriguez, Buenos Aires. The 3,000 sq. meter facility will distribute more than 10,000 part numbers to more than 25 dealer locations. The 4,500 sq. meter facility in Brazil is located in Louveira, Sao Paulo, and will move more than 20,000 parts to support 30 dealers.

Chrysler Group LLC and Fiat S.p.A. recently opened a 16,000 sq. meter parts distribution center in Shanghai, China, and an 18,000 sq. meter facility in Dubai in the United Arab Emirates. In total, both facilities move more than 65,000 parts to support Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge, Ram Truck and Fiat brands.
