Blaine Brothers family of companies is opening new parts distribution center.
The over 25,000 sq.-ft., facility is located at 754 Vandalia Street, St. Paul, MN 55114 and is centrally located between all nine of the company's facilities, directly between Minneapolis and St. Paul off I-94 and Highway 280.
The new expanded space, designed for high efficiencies, is fully equipped to stock a wider range of fast-moving parts while increasing the breadth of inventory which will result in faster service and delivery for all customers, the company says. The facility also will serve as an additional will-call location and have daily deliveries to all facilities.
“The new PDC will help us up the game in terms of having the parts our customers need. We can optimize inventory across our network of locations, so parts are where they are needed, increasing our speed to getting them in our customers hands and keeping trucks on the road,” says Tim Grabow, vice president.
Today’s environment has created many challenges with parts procurement. The opening of the PDC will enable Blaine Brothers to have the correct inventory and needed parts our customers look for daily. “This will allow us to carry the depth of inventory on key parts so no matter what is going on in the supply chain, we can ensure that we have parts available for our customers,” says Dean Dally, CEO.
“The new PDC is a demonstration of our commitment to doing everything we can to provide exceptional service to our customers,” adds Phil Howard, Director of Parts.
