Bendix Commercial Vehicle Systems LLC announced that it is expanding its long-standing Huntington, Ind., footprint with the addition of a sixth location, a 409,000-sq.-ft. facility. The company says this will enable strategic alignment of its manufacturing operations and expanded opportunities to support the company’s escalating commercial vehicle aftermarket business.

The facility, located at 1515 Riverfork Drive, is directly across from Bendix’s main plant in Huntington. The purchase price for the former Stride Rite distribution center, shuttered in 2009, was not disclosed. Bendix, which today employs nearly 440 team members in Huntington, expects to add approximately 40 additional jobs over a three-year period as it further ramps up operations. Approximately 30% of the floor space will be held in reserve to address long-term expansion opportunities.

The expansive site features 45 freight docks, 36-ft. ceiling height, and ultra high-bay racking capacity to optimize and introduce advanced technological options to Bendix’s warehousing and shipping operations, while also offering a nearly 60% increase in the campus’ three-shift distribution capability. Project planning for the facility has already begun with initial operations to commence as early as first quarter 2020, the company said.
