TEKONSHA, MI (BRAIN) — Cequent Performance Products, the maker of ROLA auto racks and cargo boxes, is converting its Tekonsha, Michigan, facility to a regional distribution center.
The location currently houses the company's engineering and product development teams. The 75,000-square-foot facility will take the place of the Huntington, Indiana, location and will add more than 13 jobs.
"Tekonsha is an ideal location to serve as our newest distribution center," said Justin Schuhardt, CPP's director of global logistics. "Combined with the opening of our Dallas, Texas, master distribution center, we are in a great position to serve customers throughout the Midwest region."
The Tekonsha facility will continue to be the center of development for automotive and braking research. It will join five other CPP North American distribution centers.
