Dayco has significantly increased the size and capacity of its Australian warehouse and distribution center, located in the Melbourne suburb of Hallam.
Dayco’s warehouse expansion has seen the Hallam warehouse expand capacity by more than 1,000 square meters (10,763 square feet) of warehousing space, transporter access bays and internal modernizations to support the addition of more than 4,000 new Dayco SKUs.
The company says the expansion will allow for further growth in Dayco’s product range over the coming years with the company’s planned introduction of an industrial belt range along with radiator caps and future additions to the Dayco automotive aftermarket offering.
The Dayco Australia warehouse expansion also will see the company introduce a new bar code scanning system to increase product distribution efficiency and accuracy.
According to Arnold Mouw, Dayco vice president, aftermarket, Asia Pacific, the company’s warehouse expansion is aligned with Dayco’s global objectives to ensure their customers receive the best service possible, while providing faster access to the highest-quality automotive aftermarket engine belts, thermal management and engine components.
“Our warehouse expansion is an investment in our commitment to the future of the Australian and New Zealand automotive aftermarket industries,” said Mouw.
“Making sure that our aftermarket customers in the automotive, trucking and industrial markets have immediate access to our belts, hoses, tensioners, pulleys and additional new Dayco products is our top priority. The larger and more efficient distribution center will enable us to deliver this objective and provide our customers with even more support,” added Mouw.
With locations worldwide, Dayco is a global leader in the research, design, manufacturing and distribution of essential engine products, drive systems and services and has been for more than a century.
