VIPAR Heavy Duty announced that it will open parts distribution centers in the eastern and western United States. These PDCs will become operational in the fourth quarter of 2008 with warehousing operations, cross-docking opportunities, and brake shoe remanufacturing.
The new business will fall under Global Parts Network LLC (GPN), an independent company that provides seamless service support exclusively to the VIPAR network of distributors and suppliers.
A specialty of the new operation will be assembly of new and remanufactured brake shoes and related products.
