Cooper opens regional distribution center in Indiana

Findlay, OH – Cooper Tire & Rubber Company announced the opening of its Whiteland, IN, regional distribution center. Located at 2400 Whiteland Rd., the 1 million square foot facility will provide Cooper with additional capacity for product storage and a modern design for optimizing operations.
“As we strive to meet customer needs and continue providing outstanding customer service, this new, larger distribution center positions Cooper to navigate logistic requirements faster and more efficiently,” said Mike Calabro, executive director, North America Supply Chain, for Cooper. “We are also pleased the workforce from our former distribution center in Franklin, IN, has transitioned with us to this new location.”
“Throughout the entire process, from site selection to finished construction, the support we received from the town of Whiteland, as well as real estate investment firm Mohr Capital has been tremendous,” continued Calabro.
First announced in June 2020, the new Whiteland distribution center replaces Cooper’s Franklin, IN, distribution center, which was located just minutes away. The Whiteland facility is one of six regional distribution centers operated by Cooper in the U.S., and part of the company’s North American distribution network, which also includes three plant manufacturing warehouses and two mixing warehouses.
