Doosan ups the distribution ante in North America

Doosan’s Infracore North America division has opened a new 100,000 ft² (9,290 m²) parts distribution centre serving its dealers and Doosan customers in the US and Canada.

Strategically located, the new parts distribution centre allows Doosan Infracore North America to provide both dealers and customers with better service options, deeper inventory and faster parts delivery, the company said.

The centre is located adjacent to the Doosan Infracore North America headquarters in Suwanee, Georgia, some 48 km northeast of Atlanta.

Edward Song, CEO, Doosan Infracore North America, said: “Doosan is committed to being a top-five construction equipment brand in North America and this new parts distribution centre illustrates our promise to support our dealers and our customers with parts availability and prompt delivery.” He said the company can “significantly reduce” shipping costs and can provide less than two-day delivery on a majority of its genuine parts delivered from the warehouse.

The facility, managed by leading contract logistics firm DHL Supply Chain, is designed for Doosan parts distribution and shipping. It will stock around 40,000 stock keeping units that can be shipped to service Doosan construction equipment throughout the US and Canada.

The parts distribution centre will house a majority of Doosan parts, with only some low-volume parts needing to come from Doosan manufacturing facilities around the globe, the company said.
Doosan supplies a variety of equipment to the mining sector including excavators and ADTs.
