Volvo highlights opening of Dex Heavy Duty Parts

Executives of the Volvo Group, Dex Heavy Duty Parts LLC and local and state public officials celebrated the grand opening of the Dex facility in Advance, N.C., with a ribbon-cutting ceremony and tour of the facility. Dex, a Volvo Group subsidiary and leading supplier of recycled, renovated and surplus medium- and heavy-duty truck parts, offers new life to trucks by offering recycled and renovated parts to second- and third-generation truck owners.

“The Volvo Group is pleased to open another facility in North Carolina,” said Dennis Slagle, president of Volvo Group Trucks Sales North America. “Dex Heavy Duty Parts takes old trucks and recycles them – refurbishing some parts for resale and recycling others for reuse – which is not only a natural extension of our business, but perfectly exemplifies our core value of care for the environment.”

“We welcome this investment by the Volvo Group and Dex Heavy Duty Parts in our state,” said North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory. “It’s always great to see companies move to North Carolina and we appreciate Dex Heavy Duty Parts’ commitment to our state and environment. Employers know North Carolina is a great place to invest because of our friendly business climate, infrastructure and talented workforce.”

The Volvo Group invested $2.6 million into the renovation of the 210,000-sq.-ft. Dex building, the site of a former textile storage facility. The building is located on 38 acres near a major highway, enabling the easier transportation of materials.

“Since 2012, Dex has recycled more than three million pounds of material,” said Darin Redmon, director of operations for Dex Heavy Duty Parts. “We are the only OEM that has a complete lifecycle channel for its products.”
