The Carlstar Group opened a new distribution facility in Fontana, Calif.
“We are extremely excited about the investment in the Fontana, California Distribution Center and this great addition to our global network,” said John Salvatore, Chief Executive Officer at The Carlstar Group. “The Production Street Distribution Center represents another major investment by The Carlstar Group in our domestic capabilities and footprint. What’s even more exciting is how quickly we were able to bring this site up. It’s now fully operational and will service all of our west coast customer operations with a larger footprint and expanded capacity.”
The 320,000-square-foot facility offers 70 percent more storage than the company's previous West Coast operations were able to offer. The newer, more modern and larger capacity of the Production Street facility will help streamline The Carlstar Group’s customer operations and will help to ensure ontime delivery, order accuracy and access to a broader range of the Carlstar Product Portfolio from one location. In addition, the expanded dock capabilities and a larger trailer yard will enable more efficient logistics and handling.
This facility will supply the following brands and products:
- Carlisle® branded products in Specialty Trailer, Powersports, Agriculture, and Outdoor Power Equipment segments
- ITP® branded Tires and Wheels for ATV, UTV and Side-by-Side vehicles
- Cragar®, Blackrock® and Unique® branded Aftermarket Styled Wheels
“The opening of the Production Street location officially consolidates all staff, inventory and materials from the previous Vintage, Calif., facility,” said Salvatore. “We were fortunate to find a larger, more modern space to help grow ours and our customer’s businesses, and be roughly five miles from our previous location. Our customers and employees are both benefiting from this fabulous new distribution center.”
