Carlex Distribution Center Resumes Normal Business
September 12, 2011
|A February 24 tornado caused extensive damage
to the north end of the Carlex distribution center in Lebanon,
The Carlex distribution center in Lebanon, Tenn., has resumed normal
operationssix months after a tornado disabled it on February
"The damages sustained to the north end of the building were
rather significant," said Jim Skrabacz, director of Carlex
Aftermarket Distribution, during a recent recognition ceremony.
"All of our offices and a large portion of the Center's bulk
storage was either damaged or completely destroyed. We are proud
to have been able to keep things going and look forward to returning
to normal operations."
Much of the center's inventory and operations had been relocated
to a nearby building, according to Carlex, but, as of September
1, the building was repaired and all inventory was relocated to
its original location. Over the next several months, the company
also plans to create additional office space in the building to
accommodate aftermarket employees who are transferring to the location
from Allen Park, Mich.
