Idemitsu Lubricants to open major U.S. distribution hub
Idemitsu Lubricants America Corp. has leased a new 50,000-square feet facility in Jeffersonville, Indiana, that will serve as a major U.S. distribution hub for its packaged lubricants.
“We are excited about the opportunities that this facility will afford us to service our customers and for the future growth of our business,” Rick Adkins, Idemitsu’s senior manager of Supply Chain Logistics, said.
“We will utilize the America’s Place facility as a fulfillment center for our direct distribution of lubricants across the U.S. This facility is a perfect fit for Idemitsu Lubricants America Corporation due to its proximity to our blending plant as well as the interstate accessibility.”
The building is among six Class A commercial buildings being developed by America Place at the River Ridge Commerce Center, a 6,000-acre regional office park in Southern Indiana.
Idemitsu Lubricants said it considered several sites for its new warehousing and distribution operation. The company chose the River Ridge location because of its prime location and America Place’s ability to accommodate specific operational needs. The America Place campus at River Ridge is within five miles of Idemitsu’s lubricant blending plant, with easy access to four interstates.
