Global Parts Network LLC (GPN), a wholly owned subsidiary of VIPAR Heavy Duty, has opened two new CoMan Centers (Cooperative Manufacturing Centers) in the eastern and western United States. The new facilities will support GPN's brake remanufacturing operations and will also serve as parts distribution centers to the VIPAR Heavy Duty distributor network.
GPN is an independent company that provides seamless service support exclusively to the VIPAR Heavy Duty network of distributors and suppliers. It leverages the latest technology to bring demand chain partners together to create business process efficiencies and specializes in high-volume, fast-moving parts. GPN's primary concern is to continue to grow market share, increase profits, and provide customer support for both VIPAR Heavy Duty's supplier partners and distributors.
The eastern CoMan Center is in the suburbs of Indianapolis IN and became operational in February. The western facility in Salt Lake City UT will open April 1. New and remanufactured brake shoes and related product are available from the two facilities.
