American Tire Distributors (ATD) announced it is reorganizing their sales and supply chain during a field leadership team meeting last week.
As part of the reorganization, ATD introduced specialized critical roles within the sales and supply chain functions. These positions will be responsible for diving sales, operational efficiencies and service quality, according to the company.
“Our goal is to equip our sales team to anticipate the needs of each customer today and tomorrow supported by our breadth and availability,” said Stuart Schuette, president and CEO of ATD. “We are on our journey of transformation because we believe it is the right direction for our company, our associates, our customers and our suppliers … at exactly the right time.”
ATD also announced it will be opening the Pocono mixing warehouse, in Blakeslee, Pa., in the early third quarter of 2018.
The 1 million square-foot facility will streamline the flow of inventory and enhancing the range of products from ATD’s suppliers to customers in the northeast United States and eastern Canada market.
The warehouse is part of a multi-step expansion within the company. ATD opened a 1 million square-foot mixing warehouse in Shafter, Calif., in 2015 and a 756,000 square-foot mixing center in Alliance, Texas, in May 2017.
