Motion Industries to open new distribution center

Motion Industries announced plans to open a new distribution center in Auburn, Washington, in late spring 2018.

The new distribution center will serve 24 area Motion Industries branch locations daily, as well as the entire Motion Industries North American footprint of more than 500 locations as needed. Covering just over 62,000 square feet, the DC will stock and ship a broad range of industrial parts and supplies including bearings, power transmission products, fluid power components, electrical parts, safety supplies and more.

“The opening of this DC is a strategic initiative to amplify our service and commitment to our customers in the Pacific Northwest,” said Joe Limbaugh, vice president of operations/distribution/properties.

“Speed to market is important to customers, and it is important to us. This distribution center’s location will be key to getting customers the parts and supplies they need even faster than before,” said Tim Breen, Motion Industries president and CEO.

Motion Industries also operates distribution centers in Birmingham, Alabama; Tracy, California; Chicago; Baltimore; Dallas; Edmonton, Alberta; and Lachine, Quebec.
