Arnold Motor Supply Expands with New DC in Iowa

Arnold Motor Supply Expands with New DC in Iowa

The move brings about the merging of its Cedar Falls and Waterloo stores into a larger facility to support customers.

Arnold Motor Supply announced it recently moved to a new location in Waterloo, Iowa. The 19,500 square foot facility provides improved retail space, expanded inventory and additional distribution capacity.

The move brings about the merging of the Cedar Falls and Waterloo stores into a larger facility so the company can continue to support the growing aftermarket parts and supplies needs of its customers, Arnold Motor Supply says. “The average age of vehicles on the road continues to rise,” says Eric Johnson, president and managing partner at Arnold Motor Supply, “coupled with industry-wide shortages of new and used vehicles, amplifying the demand for replacement parts.”

Adding a distribution hub in the Waterloo area will allow for better access to parts for its area stores and, ultimately, the customer. “Our customers don’t have time to wait. When they need a part, they typically need it right now,” Johnson adds.

Arnold Motor Supply says it will continue to serve the Cedar Falls and Waterloo communities at the 2710 Wagner Road location.
