AutoZone To Build New DC In Virginia

Recommended Posts

AutoZone will invest $185.2 million to build a new warehouse and distribution center in New Kent, Virginia, according to Gov. Glenn Youngkin’s office.

The 800,000-square-foot DC and direct import facility will serve as AutoZone’s East Coast distribution operation, enabling the company to access nearly half of U.S. consumers within a one-day drive. AutoZone has more than 145 stores in Virginia and more than 735 stores in neighboring states along the East Coast, according to the company.

The DC will create 352 new jobs, according to the governor’s office.

The facility will be the first major tenant in the New Kent City Center industrial park, according to an article by the Richmond Times-Dispatch. The 1,600-acre New Kent City Center, billed as “Virginia’s largest ready-to-develop multiple-use site,” is located near I-64 and state Route 106

Former Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam approved a $2.51 million grant to assist New Kent County with the project. AutoZone is eligible to receive benefits from the Port of Virginia Economic and Infrastructure Development Zone Grant Program, and will be able to take advantage of funding and services from the Virginia Jobs Investment Program to supports its onboarding and training efforts, according to the state. Dominion Energy Virginia also will assist with the project.

“During our rigorous and competitive search process to identify our next distribution center location, Virginia and New Kent County leadership were tremendous and instrumental in us deciding to join this wonderful community,” AutoZone CEO Bill Rhodes said in a news release. “Our large-scale investment in New Kent County is an important part of our strategy for accelerated growth and represents our commitment to always put customers first.”

In a news release, state officials touted Virginia as “a premier logistics destination serving as a single gateway into critical customer markets.” 

“AutoZone’s decision to establish such a large footprint in the commonwealth is a testament to the infrastructure assets we have in place to ensure their products get to more store shelves predictably,” Secretary of Transportation Shep Miller said. “The Youngkin administration will actively seek ways to ensure The Port of Virginia and the road and rail freight corridors are positioned to handle increased capacity for years to come.”

Stephen Edwards, CEO and executive director of the Virginia Port Authority, applauded AutoZone for its decision “to build its East Coast distribution center in Virginia and capitalize on the access to global markets offered by The Port of Virginia.

“This company is going to be a significant importer, so consistency in its logistics supply chain is critical to a successful operation,” Edwards added. “The investments we’re making in our terminals will help to ensure that AutoZone can grow its volumes without concern. We welcome AutoZone and are looking forward to a long, collaborative relationship.”

AutoZone’s existing distribution centers are located in Ontario, California; Pasco, Washington; Terrell, Texas; Hazleton, Pennsylvania; Lexington, Tennessee; Lavonia, Georgia; Tolleson, Arizona; Ocala, Florida; Zanesville, Ohio; and Danville, Illinois. 

In December, AutoZone

      Arnold Motor Supply has officially opened its new Lincoln, Nebraska, location at 2811 W O St.
      Lincoln residents are most likely familiar with the West O location and its roots dating back to the early 1980s as Snow Auto Supply. Joe H. Snow served as a colonel in the U.S. Air Force for 28 years before starting the family business. His son Spencer continued the legacy in 1998 and has been managing the store for the past 25 years.
      “We’ve wanted to enter the Lincoln market for many years and have had a long relationship with Spencer Snow,” said Eric Johnson, president and managing partner at Arnold Motor Supply. “We’re excited to bring our automotive and commercial vehicle focus to the location while continuing the strong paint and refinish capabilities Snow Auto Supply has always provided the community,”
      Arnold Motor Supply entered into agreement with Snow Auto Supply and officially purchased the business earlier this month. The store has an extensive selection of replacement parts for automotive, heavy-duty trucks, collision (including PPG refinish paint), agriculture and fleet applications.
      “We also have the advantage of daily deliveries from our distribution centers and surrounding stores,” added Mike Molle, vice president of store operations at Arnold Motor Supply. “Having a readied supply of parts ensures that whether you’re a DIYer or professional repair shop, we’re going to get you the parts you need.”

      Advance Auto Parts announced it has opened 22 new stores in the Los Angeles market as part of the company’s broader strategic expansion into the Western United States. 
      In spring 2021, Advance announced its plan to expand into California by leasing 109 Pep Boys stores and converting them to Advance stores, more than half of which are in the Los Angeles area. 
      “We estimate that 70% of our customers in Los Angeles fit the profile of the classic do-it-yourselfer. Pairing that with the more than 7.6 million registered vehicles in Los Angeles’ unique car culture, this is a tremendous opportunity for Advance to bring care and speed to motorists through expert advice and best-in-class products and services,” said Tom Greco, president and chief executive officer of Advance. “Our timing couldn’t be better as the average vehicle age increases while used car and gasoline prices are rising, resulting in greater demand for vehicle maintenance.”
      Vehicle owners in Los Angeles and other parts of the West will gain access to everything Advance stores offer, such as free curbside and in-store pickup within 30 minutes of ordering online, as well as some of the most trusted automotive brands in the world, including DieHard, the company noted. In response to the emerging popularity of hybrid and electric cars, Advance last month introduced the DieHard EV battery – the first-to-market 12-volt battery designed specifically for hybrid and electric vehicles and sold exclusively at Advance.
      Advance also will support local communities and professional technicians across California by employing approximately 1,850 team members in the state when all 109 stores are converted, including staffing the company’s newly opened 45,000-square-foot “super hub” flagship location, centrally located off the 10 and 110 freeways in the Pico Union neighborhood near downtown Los Angeles. 
      With a growing need to service the approximately 14 million registered vehicles in California, including an increased number of electric and hybrid vehicles, Advance also brings the ability for professional repair partners to expand their technical knowledge with virtual and in-person training opportunities, available through Carquest Technical Institute and Worldpac Training Institute, which are developed and taught by factory-trained instructors and available to automotive technicians nationwide, Advance noted.

      Continental has introduced a new packaging design for its next generation of REDI-Sensor multi-application TPMS sensors.
      Developed as part of an overall branding update coinciding with the launch of Continental’s next generation of TPMS sensors, the new packaging employs an easy-to-read product identification promoting REDI-Sensor’s performance capabilities, key attributes and overall benefits to TPMS service.
      “We’ve added a key feature to the new REDI-Sensor package to make it as informative and service ready as possible,” noted Lindsay Smith, Continental product manager. “The back panel of the new REDI-Sensor package includes a QR code that provides a quick link to the REDI-Sensor TPMS application online lookup, so customers can quickly verify that they have the right TPMS sensor or service parts for the vehicle they are servicing. The lookup allows search by vehicle year, make and model, or VIN number and also enables access to REDI-Sensor TPMS sensor installation and relearn instructions, service tips, videos, and technical support.”
      The next generation of REDI-Sensor features four multi-application TPMS sensors that can replace more than 290 different OE sensors and provide coverage for more than 168 million VIO from model years 2002 to 2022.
      The new REDI-Sensor line gives shops a significant TPMS service advantage by dramatically reducing the number of sensor SKUs needed to service incoming domestic, European and Asian vehicles, according to Continental. With only four REDI-Sensor SKUs on hand, shops are ready to provide TPMS service for virtually every vehicle that comes in.
      REDI-Sensor TPMS sensors come ready to install, right out of the box, and require no added sensor programming or cloning. They are pre-programmed from the factory and designed to follow existing OE vehicle-relearn procedures. REDI-Sensor works with most major TPMS scan tools and is compatible with TPMS features such as autolearning, pressure by position and tire-fill alert systems.
