Updated Oct 26, 2017

Meritor on Tuesday announced the opening of its West Coast Aftermarket Distribution Center in Santa Fe Springs, Calif., to fulfill aftermarket orders from warehouse distributors and dealers in 13 states.

“As part of our ongoing efforts to exceed customer expectations, the new center will simplify business transactions for customers in Western states, offering greater order flexibility and shorter lead times,” says Brett Penzkofer, vice president, Aftermarket, North America for Meritor.

The facility stocks the complete Meritor Aftermarket brand portfolio for customers in Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Utah, Washingon and Wyoming.

Meritor says all orders placed by 4 p.m. PT will ship the same day. Unit-down orders will be fulfilled from the West Coast Aftermarket Distribution Center, with the Florence, Ky., Distribution Center offering inventory support as needed. Customer pick-up service from the Western center is available to all customers at 9400 Santa Fe Springs Rd., Santa Fe Springs, Calif.

Meritor’s Florence location will continue to fulfill orders in the eastern United States and Canada. The company’s Edmonton, Alberta facility will serve western Canada. Customer invoices will continue to be issued from Florence, the company says.
