American Tire Distributors, Inc. (ATD) announced that its new one-million-square-foot Pocono Mixing Warehouse in Blakeslee, Pennsylvania will officially begin shipments on Dec. 3.

The Pocono Mixing Warehouse facility will support 70 full-time employees who will receive and ship more than 2.5 million tires per year, along with wheels, tools and other automotive supplies. The Pocono Mixing Warehouse will house all of ATD’s proprietary and imported brands including Hercules, Ironman, Nexen and Dynatrac. It will also include ATD’s sixth warranty adjustment center. It will also primarily service vendors in the northeast and the mid-Atlantic United States as well as eastern Canada.

“This is just the latest example of how we’re keeping the power of choice alive for all of our customers,” said Mark Chandler, ATD’s senior vice president of supply chain. “Pocono, our fourth mixing warehouse, will have one of the largest SKU assortments of any of our mixing warehouses, making it easier than ever for our customers to receive the products they need, when they need them. There’s no doubt that the largest and longest-serving technology-enabled distribution network is taking the next step forward.”

ATD President and CEO Stuart Schuette called the warehouse “an important investment that strengthens our already industry-leading supply chain operations.”

“ATD is moving forward with its game-changing transformation to help its customers win,” he said. “We’ve created an optimal environment for ATD to ensure that products are in stock and ready to move when our customers need them. The way Pocono operates will reflect that and it will help keep ATD the industry leader for decades to come.”

In early November, ATD will also host a grand opening ribbon cutting ceremony with community leaders, associates and ATD leadership.
