Bendix to consolidate Sparks, Nevada, distribution center operation into Huntington, Indiana, campus

April 18, 2024
Consolidation is the latest step in Bendix’s ongoing enhancement of customer-focused operational efficiency.

Bendix Commercial Vehicle Systems recently announced it will close its distribution center in Sparks, Nevada, and consolidate the operation and all parts inventory into the Bendix Distribution Center on the company’s Huntington, Indiana, campus. Bendix expects to complete the consolidation this year by the close of the second quarter.

The BDC is the company’s primary North American distribution point. The announcement marks another step in Bendix’s long-term effort to enhance the company’s customer-focused operational efficiency.

“Delivering value to our customers is at the core of all we do,” said Piotr Sroka, Bendix president, COO, and CEO. “Consolidating our U.S.-based distribution operations into the state-of-the-art, multishift-enabled Bendix Distribution Center at our Huntington location ensures improved responsiveness and flexibility for our customers—including increased accessibility. Thanks to a full slate of continuous improvement actions underway—and with new expanded hours for our shipping operation out of Huntington—we expect our service and responsiveness to improve even more as a result of this action.”

Bendix ships the majority of customer orders for parts from Huntington. The company expects no changes to availability going forward and little to no customer impact as the consolidation is completed.

Bendix launched the Sparks distribution center operation in 1992. Its closure and consolidation into Huntington will not affect the ongoing operation of Bendix distribution centers in Mexico City, Mexico, or Montreal, Canada. Those facilities will continue operations unchanged, serving as strategic locations across the company’s North American marketplace.

“The decision to undertake the shift and shutter the Sparks facility was reached only with careful evaluation and consideration, including for those contractors—no full-time Bendix employees work at the site—who will be impacted by the closure,” Sroka said.
