YKK AP America Opens Doors at New Texas Facility

DALLAS/FORT WORTH (Sept. 2014)YKK AP America opened the doors to its newest manufacturing facility in the Dallas/Fort Worth metropolitan area during a special event for the community. The grand opening was celebrated Sept. 26, in Coppell, Texas.

Opened in July 2014, the 105,000 square foot facility serves as a key U.S. distribution center for YKK AP. The Coppell location, which is dedicated to production, distribution and logistics, allows the company to increase its local production capability and allows for expanded finished good inventory. Additionally, the facility will serve as a key U.S. distribution center, improving transportation and logistics services to the entire region, and offer dedicated route truck deliveries to certain major markets.

“The new operation in Coppell will greatly enhance the company’s ability to service the local market versus its current regional branch location,” said Oliver Stepe, senior vice president, YKK AP America. “Texas is a continual focal point for YKK AP America as we look to expand in the local area as well as the western United States.”
