A leading global automotive supplier plans to open a new shipping warehouse in Mt. Juliet this spring.
DENSO, headquartered in Japan, is a leading automotive parts supplier. They plan to invest $6.7 million to open a logistics and shipping warehouse on Couchville Pike, near State Route 840 in April. They will lease the 165,000-square foot Wilson Commerce building. The operation will employ 20 people.
"This new warehouse enables us to expand our capabilities to satisfy our customers and also support continued sales growth," said Britt Autry, vice president of the North American Production Promotion Center at DENSO Manufacturing Tennessee in Maryville.
Along with the Mt. Juliet expansion, DENSO also recently invested approximately $1.6 million to expand its Logistics Michigan (DLMI) warehouse. The investment represents the addition of 40,902-square feet and 10 new jobs.
DLMI opened its doors in 2007 to coordinate the distribution of products from various countries, like Japan, Spain, Hungary and Thailand, to a wide range of DENSO's North American customers. With the addition of DLNT, DENSO will have six warehouses in North America.
DENSO's North American consolidated sales totaled $7.9 billion for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2014.
