Gates Corp., Denver, CO, will close its Salt Lake City, UT, distribution center in the summer of 2009. The center currently services automotive aftermarket customers, and employs 42 associates.
Improvements in transportation and inventory management prompted the move to consolidate the distribution center into one more centrally located and closer to the manufacturing base, according to Scott Burr, president of North American distribution and demand management.
Gates Corp. manufactures industrial and automotive products, systems and component with operations in 25 countries.
