It’s always been DENSO’s core operating philosophy to be close to our customers in the regions in which we operate,” said Hikaru “Howard” Sugi, president and CEO of DENSO International America, Inc. “We’re proud to extend our network and welcome Montgomery into the DENSO family.”

DENSO will be leasing an existing 103,000 sq. ft. warehouse in Montgomery, Ala. and will employ approximately 45 employees in a three-shift operation.

“We are grateful to the Montgomery Area Chamber of Commerce, the City of Montgomery Industrial Development Board, the Montgomery County Commission and all the city and state officials who have helped pave the way for this new facility,” said Mike Bowman, director of warehousing operations, who spoke at a news conference in Montgomery.
