The LODI Group of Monterrey, Mexico, has announced Phase 2 of its consolidation plan for Automotive Technology Products.
On May 23, 2017, The LODI Group announced the formation of a new company, Automotive Technology Products, following the acquisition of the assets of the former ATP Inc.
“We wish to thank our customers, sales representatives and supply base for their patronage and loyalty through this transition to date. Phase 1 gave priority to rebuilding customer confidence and expediting efforts to restore service levels. With those goals met and shipping at historic levels, it is now time to implement Phase 2,” said Jorge Frias, LODI officer and ATP president.
Since the acquisition, ATP has been shipping from a leased facility in Elk Grove Village, Illinois, while moving some of the bulk storage and packaging functions to its sister company, Pioneer, in Meridian, Mississippi.
Phase 2 will complete the consolidation of ATP into the 220,000-square-foot, LODI-owned facility and U.S. headquarters in Meridian. In addition to warehouse operations, all sales, marketing, customer service and finance functions will be relocated as well.
“The plan is to make this transition as smooth as possible and without disruption in business. We will begin by building finished goods inventory in both locations immediately, then start shipping ATP products from bothMeridian and the Elk Grove, Illinois, warehouse prior to its eventual closing in November,” said Frias.
“The goal is to make this change seamless and as transparent as possible. The purpose of this early announcement is to keep our valued customers completely informed and provide the assurance that it will be business as usual during the move,” added Jack Cameron, vice president of sales.
ATP said questions should be directed to local sales representatives or by contacting the company directly. The ATP web address is atpautomotive.com.
