WHITELAND, Ind. (Inside INdiana Business) — Ohio-based Cooper Tire & Rubber Co. (NYSE: CTB) has opened its new one million square foot distribution center in Whiteland. The new warehouse replaces Cooper’s existing facility in Franklin.

Cooper says workers at the Franklin warehouse relocated to the new site.

The tire company says the additional storage capacity and modern design will optimize 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.

The company broke ground on the project last August. The Cooper Tire facility is the inaugural tenant in the new 500-acre distribution park being developed by Dallas-based Mohr Capital.
