Bendix Commercial Vehicle Systems will close its distribution center in Sparks, Nevada, and consolidate operations at the Huntington, Indiana, campus. The company says it's another step in the effort to make operations more efficient. 

"Delivering value to our customers is at the core of all we do," says Piotr Sroka, Bendix's president COO and CEO. "Consolidating our U.S.-based distribution operations into the state-of-the-art, multishift-enabled Bendix Distribution Center at our Huntington location ensures improved responsiveness and flexibility for our customers — including increased accessibility. Thanks to a full slate of continuous improvement actions underway and with new expanded hours for our shipping operation out of Huntington, we expect our service and responsiveness to improve even more as a result of this action." 

The company expect no changes to availability going forward and little to no customer impact as the consolidation is completed, some time in the second quarter of this year.

The Sparks, Nevada, distribution center opened in 1992. Bendix says the closing will not affect distribution centers in Mexico or Canada. 

"The decision to undertake the shift and shutter the Sparks facility was reached only with careful evaluation and consideration, including for those contractors — no full-time Bendix employees work at the site — who will be impacted by the closure," Sroka says.
