The Fiat plant in Rivalta, near Turin in Italy, is set to become one of Mopar’s global parts distribution centres serving Europe, the Middle East, Africa (EMEA).
This project will transform a former vehicle production plant into an innovative, energy-efficient and environmentally-sustainable parts and accessories storage and distribution warehouse. The new facility will support over 5,000 facilities, improving delivery time to retailers and workshops, increasing customer service quality as a result.
‘As we grow the Mopar brand around the world, customer satisfaction continues to be one of our key global priorities,’ said Pietro Gorlier, global head of parts and service (Mopar) and chief operating officer of the EMEA region.
The Rivalta project is set to optimise Mopar’s global operation, with approximately 340,000sqm of space, of which 40,000sqm will consist of new buildings. By 2020, the new structure will also host the regional headquarters of Mopar.
