Fiat Chrysler has announced it will invest $10.4 million in a new Mopar Parts Distribution Center in Metro Detroit.
The new facility, located in Romulus, Michigan, will span 500,000 square feet and will employ more than 100 workers. Scheduled to open in the third quarter of 2017, it joins Mopar’s 22 other parts distribution centers in the U.S. and distribute an estimated 45 million parts annually. Preliminary construction work on the site has already begun.
“With the start of preliminary work on the Romulus PDC, along with the new facility under way in Virginia, FCA US will have invested a total of more than $22 million in these two new PDC projects,” Mopar head of parts and service Pietro Gorlier, said. “These facilities confirm FCA’s continued commitment to customer service, and will strengthen the Mopar supply chain, both in North America and also globally.”
FCA says it will provide further information on the construction project and future employment opportunities at the site at a later date.
