ELYRIA, Ohio — Bendix Commercial Vehicle Systems has opened a 51,000-square foot addition to its Huntington Distribution Center, providing 20 per cent additional floor space to accommodate continued business growth.
Company executives from both the corporate office in Ohio and global headquarters in Germany participated in a ribbon cutting ceremony with local plant employees to officially open the facility. Terry Abbett, mayor of Huntington, presented plant officials with a key to the city.
“It’s exciting to be part of a growing, global company here in Huntington, and our people have played a very vital role in the success of our local operations,” said Michael Pogorelc, plant manager of Bendix Huntington. “Expanding our distribution facility, combined with existing programs aimed at maximizing our production capability and capacity, will continue to position us well for the future.”
The integration of aftermarket brake components for Bendix Spicer Foundation Brake, the Bendix joint venture with Dana Corporation, was the catalyst that drove an accelerated need for the facility’s expansion.
In addition, the facility is expanding its employee cafeteria, building an employee fitness center and adding an internal office complex to house a new training center as further evidence of its commitment to programs to foster career development alongside employee health and wellness.
