PITTSBURGH U.S. Shredder & Castings Group is opening a new warehouse in Charlotte, N.C., to meet the needs of its East Coast and Southeast customers.
The Trussville, Ala.-based company will stock an array of hammers, caps and other shredder castings that will allow auto shredding customers to order parts as needed.
The company said that the success of its Mackinaw, Ill., warehouse, which opened in July, motivated it to open the North Carolina facility which is expected to open in January.
"We are working with our customers to allow them to keep their own inventory lower while being assured that quick delivery for less than full containers will be available to them," according to Barry Sheppard, vice president of aftermarket sales.
Plans are under way to open a similar facility in Texas by the end of 2014.
