FinishMaster Opens New Distribution Center In Grand Prairie, Texas

The addition of this new distribution center supports FinishMaster’s fulfillment strategy to its branch and customer network. This was the second distribution center FinishMaster opened in 2017.

FinishMaster Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Uni-Select Inc., has opened its fifth distribution center in Grand Prairie, Texas, in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex. The addition of this new distribution center supports FinishMaster’s fulfillment strategy to its branch and customer network.

The brand new 60,000-square-foot state-of-the-art facility utilizes wire guidance to maximize square footage and efficiency in stocking and shipping products. The addition of this distribution center in the Dallas-Fort Worth market is important to continued growth, as the facility provides additional capacity as FinishMaster continues to expand its footprint and remain focused on providing customers with exceptional service.

This was the second distribution center FinishMaster opened in 2017. In March 2017, a similar facility was opened in Moorestown, New Jersey, to support growth along the east coast.  

“Looking back over our nearly 50 years in business it is hard to believe we have grown from one branch to over 200 branches supported by a distribution center network with five locations. We are excited to open this facility and continue to fulfill our commitment to growth with our customers, vendors, and team members,” said Steve Arndt, president and chief operating officer of FinishMaster.

Despite a tough commercial tire market in 2023 due to overstock and the effects of a rubber-banding supply chain, some tire manufacturers are expressing a cautious optimism for stabilization and gradual recovery through the rest of 2024 and into 2025.

"The economy is not showing signs that it’s going to slow down, but I don’t think the situation’s going to improve dramatically by the end of this year. It’s more likely next year," said Pierluigi Cumo, Vice President of B2B products, at Michelin North America. "We can see the light because the beginning of 2023 was very bad. I think now we’ve found the bottom, and I don’t think we’re going to get much further from the bottom in 2024."
