About 100 jobs to be saved at Maysville facility
FRANKFORT, Ky. (Dec. 11, 2014) — The Federal-Mogul Motorparts distribution center in Maysville—scheduled to close on June 30, 2015—will remain open and retain up to 100 jobs.
The facility had been scheduled to close as part of a realignment of the company’s North American distribution network.
The Kentucky Cabinet for Economic Development reached out to Federal-Mogul Motorparts to offer support and discuss options to keep the company in Maysville. Federal-Mogul Motorparts now plans to turn the Kentucky operation into its dedicated North American product logistics center.
“This is very exciting news for northeastern Kentucky and the entire commonwealth,” Gov. Steve Beshear said. “Kentucky is dedicated to not only attracting new businesses, but also supporting our existing industries.”
Federal-Mogul Motorparts currently receives, inspects and distributes unsold products and other items from its wholesale customers at multiple facilities across the U.S. The company, which manufactures and distributes more than 97,000 product stock keeping units (SKUs) for automotive, commercial vehicle, industrial and other North American markets, will consolidate this function in Maysville after existing product distribution operations are realigned.
Founded in Detroit in 1899, Federal-Mogul Motorparts employs more than 45,000 people.
