Dana Increases Aftermarket Customer Support with New Distribution Centers in Mexico, China


MAUMEE, OH--Aug. 7, 2012: Dana Holding Corporation announced today the opening of new distribution centers in China and Mexico to increase product availability, improve delivery times, and provide additional support to its growing number of aftermarket customers.

These centers in Toluca, Mexico, and Wuxi, Jiangsu Province, China, bring to 17 the total number of aftermarket-dedicated distribution centers globally and will serve as hubs in each region to provide parts for Dana's light-vehicle, commercial-vehicle, and off-highway customers.

The Mexico distribution center opened last month and supplies on-highway aftermarket products. Dana will add off-highway products in the near future. The facility in China will be fully operational this month, initially delivering off-highway products, but adding light-vehicle components in the coming months.

"By expanding our service network even further we are able to provide essential logistical support and distribute quality aftermarket products with greater efficiency through our dedicated teams in each local market."
