The historic Fiat plant in Rivalta, located near Turin in Italy, is set to become one of the Mopar brand’s global parts and distribution centres serving Europe, the Middle East, Africa (EMEA) and additional world markets.
Prompted by the rapid global expansion of Mopar, the service, parts and customer-care brand for FCA vehicles, the project will transform a former vehicle production plant into an “innovative, energy-efficient and environmentally sustainable” parts and accessories storage and distribution warehouse. The new facility will support over 5000 locations, significantly improving delivery time to dealerships and workshops, increasing customer service quality as a result.
“As we grow the Mopar brand around the world, customer satisfaction continues to be one of our key global priorities,” said Pietro Gorlier, Global Head of Parts and Service (Mopar) and Chief Operating Officer of the EMEA region.
“Delivery of the right part at the right time around the globe is at the core of what we do, so we continue to invest in our more than 50 parts distribution centres worldwide. In the case of Rivalta, we are proud to revive a building with a great industrial legacy and transform it into a state-of the art, forward-looking international parts distribution hub that will serve our markets in Europe and beyond.”
