D&W Diesel is building a new 55,000 square foot addition to the production and distribution center. The company is a distributor, manufacturer and remanufacturer of diesel and gas engine components, industrial products, tank truck equipment, hose, fittings and assemblies. In business for over 35 years, this is the fourth expansion for the Corporate Headquarters located in Auburn, NY.
The new building brings the total square footage of the Auburn facility to over 110,000. The addition will house a new, high‐density inventory storage system for its $12 million of inventory. The distribution center will be supported by a newly implemented Warehouse Management System, completely bar‐coding all inventory and rack locations for increased accuracy and efficiency.
D&W is also expanding production facilities to accommodate its rapidly growing remanufacturing business. The expansion is expected to add over 25 new positions over the next 3 years at the Auburn, NY location.
D&W Diesel has contracted with Rochester-based business, LeFrois Builders & Developers, as the general contractor for the project.
The expansion is expected to be completed in the late spring of 2012.
