Schaeffler Automotive Aftermarket Expands NA Operations

The company says its Automotive Aftermarket division is growing its workforce in Ohio.


To better accommodate its continued growth and expanding potential in the North American market, Schaeffler today announced plans to relocate and expand its Automotive Aftermarket operations. Groundbreaking began recently for its new 250,000-square-foot facility in Strongsville, Ohio – approximately five miles from its current operation in Valley City. Schaeffler says it expects the new facility to be operational in the third quarter.

“Our new Strongsville facility represents the growth of our North American Automotive Aftermarket operation,” said Jerry Conroy, vice president Automotive Aftermarket USA & Canada at Schaeffler. “The new facility consolidates aftermarket activities under one roof and managed in-house to better address our customers’ increasing orders and expanding requirements. Additionally, being close to Cleveland will help with future recruiting as we anticipate growing our local team in the future.”

In addition to providing more space – adding almost 110,000 square feet – the Strongsville warehouse distribution center will feature a redesigned layout to improve material flow from inbound to outbound to increase efficiency. Schaeffler says this will better support increasing customer requirements such as express ordering and the ability to process small and large orders more efficiently. 


The state-of-the-art facility will include modern office areas to provide more collaborative space that fosters teamwork. In addition, the company says the consolidation of operations to the new facility will help contribute to Schaeffler’s target of climate neutrality by eliminating internal transports, thereby helping reduce the company’s carbon footprint.
