AGCO Opens Canadian Parts Facility
AGCO, the worldwide manufacturer and distributor of agricultural equipment, has opened a full-stocking parts distribution center (PDC) in Woodstock, Ontario, to serve customers in Eastern Canada.
Previously, agricultural equipment parts for the eastern provinces were supplied through a facility in Kitchener, Ontario, or were shipped in from AGCO Parts’ Batavia, Ill., location. By moving to Woodstock, AGCO Parts new full-stocking distribution center is located in a more centralized, industrial area, so parts transit time will be reduced by one day to 85% of Eastern Canada, the company said. In most cases, AGCO Parts dealers will have next day delivery of in-stock parts.
In addition, the larger 67,000 sq. ft. building will allow inventory of about 45% more stock than in Kitchener, increasing inventory to an estimated 50,000 SKUs, AGCO said.
