HDA Truck Pride announces the expansion of its master warehouse to a new, larger facility in the metropolitan St Louis area.
According to HDA Truck Pride, this expansion supports its strategic plan to insure availability of all critical products and services to the entire membership. The facility also will house the corporate offices, combining formerly separate operations and improving customer service to the members, the company says.
“The larger, modernized facility will allow us to expand our master warehouse offering immediately. And while our goal is to insure the availability of all critical products, we also have plans for ancillary items and complimentary product categories. We are excited to embark on this new venture and are confident in the growth potential that the master warehouse brings to the HDA Truck Pride network,” says Bill Burns, COO. “Combining the corporate offices into the new facility was an added win which allows for enhanced customer service with streamlined communication and immediate response to our members.”
The new corporate office location is effective Dec. 15, 2012, and the master warehouse will be a transitional move throughout the next few weeks, HDA Truck Pride says.
Shawn Shumaker, vice president of program management, will assume responsibility for master warehouse operations, reporting to Burns. HDA Truck Pride also says plans are underway, with the guidance of the HDATP Product Committee, for more expansion of product coverage in the new master warehouse.
