Cooper Tire Opens New Whiteland, Indiana Distribution Center

FINDLAY, Ohio, May 20, 2021 – Today, Cooper Tire & Rubber Company announced the opening of its Whiteland, Indiana regional distribution center. Located at 2400 Whiteland Rd., the newly opened 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, Indiana 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, Indiana 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 America distribution network which also includes three plant manufacturing warehouses and two mixing warehouses.
