Twin Disc Announces Expansion in Wisconsin
Twin Disc Inc. said May 15 that it 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 company’s current location, and provides dedicated aftermarket resources and shipping flexibility. It is located at 2000 S. Sylvania Ave., Sturtevant, Wis., adjacent to the I-94 Corridor between Milwaukee and Chicago, and is just six miles west of Twin Disc’s global manufacturing headquarters in Racine. Twelve employees will be based out of the new facility.
The state-of-the-art facility has increased capacity and storage racking, uses advanced equipment including a vertical lift for small components, and applies lean strategies to create 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.”
The center opened on May 14, and the company expects it to be fully operational by June 3.
