Kia Motors is moving its parts operations to a new warehouse in Tamworth, Staffordshire that will support its UK dealer network.
The parts inventory will be managed by Mobis from May and will help to make sure dealers continue to get next day delivery on parts.
The new 209,000 square foot warehouse will provide the South Korean manufacturer and its dealers with space for 240,000 product lines. The size of the warehouse will allow up to five months worth of stock holding, controlling everything from wheel nuts to wing mirrors.
Hamish McCowan, Kia Motors UK aftersales and logistics director, said: “The Kia brand continues to grow and as a result, our logistical requirements need to adapt to meet these positive changes.
“Moving to the Mobis UK parts facility will provide our dealer network with greatly improved levels of inventory along with the latest in system and inventory management technology, meaning that our customers will always get the best levels of service that we can physically offer.”
