Cooper has opened a new one million-square-foot warehouse in Byhalia, Mississippi.

The American supplier leases the facility, which employs around 100 workers and is the largest distribution centre for Cooper nationwide.

Centrally located among Cooper’s three US tyre manufacturing plants in Findlay, Ohio, Texarkana, Arkansas, and Tupelo, Mississippi, the new facility allows Cooper to consolidate and distribute products directly to customers as well as supply its regional distribution centres.

The warehouse has the capacity to expand to an additional 400,000 sqft as needed in the future.

“We are excited to have now opened this new facility, which serves to enhance our logistics infrastructure, supporting our efforts to offer service to our customers as we get tyres to them when and where they want them,” said Cooper Supply Chain director, Bob Sager.

“This facility is a complement to our existing US distribution network that includes six regional distribution centres, three plant manufacturing warehouses and a mixing warehouse, making Cooper flexible and responsive to customer needs.”
