Mahindra USA Opens New Distribution Point

Dec. 15, 2009
Farm equipment maker Mahindra USA Inc. announced it will open a new assembly and distribution point in Chattanooga, Tenn., effective Dec. 31.

Concurrently, Mahindra USA said it has moved its North American headquarters from Tomball, Texas, to co-locate with its Houston assembly plant.

The new assembly and distribution point will take the place of Mahindra USA's Calhoun, Ga., facility and will move assembly and distribution of Mahindra Tractors approximately one hour north, according to the company.

Mahindra USA worked with one of its partners to identify a suitable distribution channel solution that would meet both its customers' and dealers' requirements for its products, while shifting assembly from its Calhoun facility, the company said.

"Our primary goal was to ensure a smooth transition as we bring the Chattanooga distribution point online," said Mike Hilderbrand, vice president of marketing and organizational development for Mahindra USA. "We are pleased to announce that the product availability and service levels that our dealers have been accustomed to, will continue unaffected."

A total of 14 employees will be affected by the transition to the new assembly and distribution point in Chattanooga, according to the company.
