Jacksonville, FL – April 28, 2014: ARB USA announces the opening of their brand new East Coast Distribution Center in Jacksonville, FL. This expansion comes as a result of strong growth of the ARB brand of products in North, Central and South America. The 25,000 square foot facility will warehouse the entire line of ARB products to include: ARB Air Lockers and compressors, ARB Bull Bars, roof racks, ARB Fridge Freezers, ARB Tents and Awnings, ARB Recovery Gear, Old Man Emu suspension systems, Safari Snorkels and IPF driving lights.
“We’re very excited to be able to offer our customers on the East Coast and in Central and South America products in a much more timely and economic manner”, said Michael Tomczyk, General Manager of ARB Jacksonville. “In many cases shipping transit times that were taking 5-6 business days have been reduced to 1-2 days, offering our customers much greater speed to market.” Presently, the new Jacksonville facility services ARB customers in the Southeastern United States, Central and South America. Over the next few months inventories will be increased to allow the facility to also service customers in the Northeastern U.S. ARB anticipates that the new distribution center will serve all ARB customers East of the Mississippi River by year’s end. The ARB USA office and warehouse in Seattle, WA will continue to stock the full range of ARB products, in addition to being the home for all of the ARB USA sales, marketing and technical assistance staff.
