NTP Distribution Inc. today (April 23) announced the opening of a new shipping warehouse within Keystone Automotive’s Kansas City, Mo., distribution center on April 30. Similar to NTP’s recent opening and moves in Exeter, Pa., Corona, Calif., and Austell, Ga., RV products will occupy a section of this 250,000-square-foot facility.

The company also announced it will be closing its distribution center in Elkhart, Ind. Customers who had been serviced from Elkhart will receive service starting April 25 out of NTP’s Exeter, Atlanta or Kansas City distribution centers. The company said this will coincide with a significant increase in the number of customers receiving next-day fleet service on their orders as a result of Keystone acquiring NTP last October.

“As we’ve said since we became a part of Keystone, we’re all about growth,” said Greg Boyd, president of Wilsonville, Ore.-based NTP. “This is just another step in our ability to service our customers better, allowing us to penetrate areas like the Great Plains states and Colorado with improved delivery services.”

“Our goal is to continue to provide our customers with the best service in the industry. We have taken special measures to avoid disruption in service while we make the transition,” said Sean Hennessy, director of operations for NTP.
