Cooper Tire to open new distribution center in New Whiteland, Indiana

Cooper Tire held a groundbreaking ceremony at the site of a new 1-million-square-foot regional distribution center  in Whiteland, Indiana.

The facility, which will replace Cooper’s Franklin, Ind. distribution center located just minutes from the new site, is expected to open in early 2021.

“Today’s groundbreaking served as an excellent opportunity to celebrate the construction of this new distribution center that will allow Cooper to continue to provide high-quality service to our customers, and as an opportunity to thank those involved with the project,” said Mike Calabro, Executive Director – North America Supply Chain for Cooper Tire. “We are pleased to be able to hold this event, with proper coronavirus prevention measures in place, to ceremoniously break ground at the site.”

The new Whiteland distribution center will provide Cooper with increased capacity for product storage and a modern design for enhanced efficiencies. The workforce from the Franklin facility will remain in place following the construction of the new building. One of six regional distribution centers operated by Cooper in the U.S., the Whiteland facility is part of the company’s North America distribution network which also includes three plant manufacturing warehouses and two mixing warehouses.
