ACM PARTS’ NEW QLD DISTRIBUTION CENTRE OPEN FOR BUSINESS
In December 2022 ACM Parts announced the lease of a new flagship distribution centre
In March 2023, the warehouse commenced racking installation and stock relocation, ramping up to full operation from around July.
The new Hemmant site has over 19,000m2 of warehouse capacity, an increase of 13,400m2 from the previous facility in Arundel.
The new warehouse boasts more than 15 direct access covered loading bays and a significant hardstand area.
The move to the larger facility will support the expansion of ACM Parts’ Reclaimed, Genuine, and Aftermarket ranges as well as workshop consumables.
“This new distribution centre will allow us to expand ACM Parts’ inventory holdings and build a stronger position within the mechanical and collision supply market right across Queensland and Northern New South Wales,” ACM Parts Executive General Manager, Adam O’Sullivan, said.
Located close to the Port of Brisbane and the Gateway motorway, this new facility opens new growth opportunities as it allows ACM Parts to deliver to more customers, more frequently.
“The new location has allowed us to increase our service offer to customers for up to three runs daily in the Brisbane metro area and we have also added a daily Sunshine Coast run,” Adam said.
“Both improvements were not feasible out of the old Arundel warehouse.
“The new facility is more modern than our pre-existing facility in Queensland, and I am excited about the opportunity for our Team members to build their experience in the new location.
“It also provides an opportunity for advancement for our current Team members as we grow our staffing levels.”
On October 24, 2023, ACM Parts welcomed suppliers, customers, and industry leaders to view the 19,000m2 warehouse during the official opening night.
Guests were able to tour the facility and learn more about ACM Parts’ Genuine, Reclaimed and Aftermarket ranges on offer.
“The opening night was an opportunity for our valued customer, supplier, and key industry partners to get to know ACM parts a little better and see how far ACM has come in its journey to be Australia’s leading supplier of Genuine, Aftermarket, and Reclaimed automotive parts and workshop consumables at our new Hemmant site,” Adam said.
