Bendix Commercial Vehicle Systems LLC (Bendix) has announced the upcoming closure of its Sparks, Nevada, distribution center, with plans to merge these operations into their larger facility at the Huntington, Indiana, campus. This strategic consolidation is set to enhance operational efficiency and customer service capabilities, with the transition expected to conclude by the end of the second quarter this year.

The Bendix Distribution Center (BDC) in Huntington serves as the main distribution hub for North America. This move is part of Bendix’s broader initiative to streamline operations and improve service delivery. “Delivering value to our customers is at the core of all we do,” stated Piotr Sroka, Bendix’s president and CEO. “This consolidation will allow us to offer even greater responsiveness and flexibility to our customers.”

Key Highlights:

  • Consolidation Complete by Q2: Bendix aims to finish the integration of the Sparks facility into the Huntington campus by the second quarter.
  • Enhanced Customer Service: The centralized operations are expected to boost service quality, characterized by expanded shipping hours and improved order fulfillment.
  • Continued North American Presence: Operations in Mexico City and Montreal will remain unchanged, ensuring sustained service across North America.

Since its establishment in 1992, the Sparks center has been a vital component of Bendix’s distribution network. However, its closure will not impact the company’s other facilities in North America, which will continue to operate as usual. “The decision to undertake the shift and shutter the Sparks facility was reached only with careful evaluation and consideration,” added Sroka, noting the minimal impact on contractors, as no full-time Bendix employees are stationed at the site.

Bendix, a subsidiary of Germany’s Knorr-Bremse, has been a fixture in Huntington since 1980 and has expanded to multiple sites around the city, supporting a variety of operational functions including manufacturing and assembly. This consolidation is another step in Bendix’s commitment to efficiently support the North American market and enhance overall service delivery.
