Cooper Tire & Rubber Company announced today that it has opened a new 1 million-square-foot warehouse in Byhalia, Miss. Cooper leases the facility, which
employs approximately 100 workers and is the largest distribution center for Cooper nationwide.
Centrally located among Cooper’s three U.S. tire manufacturing plants in Findlay, Ohio, Texarkana,
Ark., and Tupelo, Miss., the new facility allows Cooper to efficiently consolidate and distribute
products directly to customers as well as supply its regional distribution centers. The warehouse
has the capacity to expand to an additional 400,000 square feet 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 exceptional service to our customers as we get tires to
them when and where they want them,” said Bob Sager, Cooper’s Director of Supply Chain. “This
facility is a complement to our existing U.S. distribution network that includes six regional
distribution centers, three plant manufacturing warehouses and a mixing warehouse, making
Cooper even more flexible and responsive to customer needs.”
