Blaine Brothers Family of Companies has announced the opening of a new parts distribution center in St. Paul, Minnesota. The more than 25,000 square foot facility is centrally located between all nine of the company’s facilities directly between Minneapolis and St. Paul off Interstate 94 and Highway 280.
The new expanded space, designed for high efficiency, is fully equipped to stock a wider range of fast-moving parts while increasing the breadth of inventory, which Blaine Brothers says will result in faster service and delivery for all customers. The facility will serve as an additional will-call location and have daily deliveries to all facilities.
“The new PDC will help us up the game in terms of having the parts our customers need. We can optimize inventory across our network of locations, so parts are where they are needed, increasing our speed to getting them in our customers hands and keeping trucks on the road,” said Tim Grabow, vice president, Blaine Brothers.
Today’s environment has created many challenges with parts procurement, according to Blaine Brothers. The company added that the opening of the new PDC will allow the Blaine Brothers to have the correct inventory and needed parts customers look for daily. “This will allow us to carry the depth of inventory on key parts so no matter what is going on in the supply chain, we can ensure that we have parts available for our customers,” added CEO Dean Dally.
“The new PDC is a demonstration of our commitment to doing everything we can to provide exceptional service to our customers,” said Phil Howard, director of parts.
