(RACINE, Wis.) — Twin Disc Inc., a global leader in power transmission technology for marine and land-based applications, is near completion of an expansion project in Wisconsin.
The 39,000-square-foot North American Aftermarket Distribution Center offers three times the capacity of the current location, and provides dedicated aftermarket resources and shipping flexibility. It is located at 2000 S. Sylvania Avenue, Sturtevant, Wis., adjacent to the I-94 Corridor between Milwaukee and Chicago and is six miles west of the Global Manufacturing Headquarters in Racine. Twelve employees will be based out of the new Twin Disc facility.
The facility has increased capacity and storage racking, uses advanced equipment including a vertical lift module (VLM) for small components and applies lean strategies to create exceptional value for Twin Disc customers.
“The North American Aftermarket Distribution Center will be a much-needed hub for stocking and shipping all of our spare parts,” said Jorge Colorado, director, aftersales and service for Twin Disc. “This added distribution space will improve and streamline our aftersales operations and provide a greater customer experience by increasing our efficiency.”
Opening on May 14, with operations running at peak performance by June 3, the North American Aftermarket Distribution Center will allow Twin Disc to meet growing distribution and aftermarket demand.
