New Mopar distribution center

by David Zatz on

Earlier this week, FCA US opened a new Mopar parts distribution center in Winchester, Virginia. Spanning 400,000 square feet, the facility cost over $12 million, and will provide 70 jobs in two shifts as pickers handle over 50,000 different parts, serving around 200 dealerships — around 9.2 million parts per year.

Mopar chief Pietro Gorlier, UAW Chrysler chief Norwood Jewell, and various politicians appeared at the opening ceremony. Mr. Gorlier noted that this is the 22nd Mopar facility in the US; the company is trying to speed parts delivery to dealers.

The facility will be LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certified, meeting key standards in site planning, water management, energy and material use, and indoor environmental quality. For that reason, it has over 80 skylights.

FCA US also said it would spend $10.4 million to build a new Mopar distribution center in Romulus, Michigan, near the area’s largest airport; it will be 500,000 square feet in size, with around one hundred workers.
