Trek Bicycle To Expand US Distribution Centre
WATERLOO, USA – Trek Bicycle will expand its Wisconsin distribution capabilities in 2015 with a move from its existing global distribution centre in Oconomowoc to a new 250,000-square-foot facility in nearby Johnson Creek.
The new distribution centre is 50 percent larger than Trek’s existing facility and is located much closer to Trek’s head office in Madison. Trek will begin moving inventory to the new facility in the fall of 2015, the centre is expected to be fully operational by the end of 2015.
“We are excited about the expanded capabilities this new facility offers us,” said Trek Vice President of Supply Chain Roger Gierhart. “This new centre is going to help us become more efficient, streamline our warehousing and delivery processes, and gives us space to continue our growth.”
Trek currently employs 1,000 people in the state of Wisconsin.
