Brake Parts Inc Expands Eastern Distribution Center

The Hazelton Eastern distribution center will service all BPI East Coast customers, including private-label and Raybestos customers, providing them with timely and accurate order-fill rates, BPI says.

Brake Parts Inc (BPI) has expanded its Eastern distribution center in Hazelton, Pennsylvania, by more than 200,000 square feet, to meet the growing customer demand across all of its BPI product categories.

“With the rapid double-digit growth of our Eastern U.S. customer base, we are pleased to announce that we have completed construction and have installed the racking in our Hazelton distribution center,” said David Overbeeke, president and CEO of BPI. “We are nearly complete with the move-in process and will continue to provide the world-class service and industry-leading fill rates that customers expect from Brake Parts Inc.”

The Hazelton Eastern distribution center will service all BPI East Coast customers, including private-label and Raybestos customers, providing them with timely and accurate order-fill rates, BPI says.

The company made significant investments in its state-of-the-art Oracle and warehouse management systems (WMS) throughout its entire distribution system. The system delivers full visibility to various stages of the distribution process, enhances the customer experience by providing access to up-to-the-minute inventory levels, optimizes turn times and supports a 24- to 48-hour order-fill time, according to BPI.

“Our 568,000-square-foot facility has 160 full-time employees that achieved 95 percent order-fill-rate performance in 2017,”  said Al Biemer, vice president of supply chain for BPI. “The expansion of our Hazelton facility will enhance order turn by making BPI even more efficient in picking, packing and shipping, allowing us to serve our East Coast customers even better in the future.”
