Heritage Doubles Parts Inventory in Orlando
Investment at Orlando Distribution Center Better Serves Fast Growing Market
FORT WAYNE, Indiana - January 27, 2015 - Heritage Parts recently announced it has made a significant investment to expand its commercial kitchen equipment parts inventory in its Orlando, Florida, distribution center. Heritage analyzed customer needs and strategically invested in stock relevant to the Florida marketplace. This change doubled the breadth and depth of the parts selection on hand, enabling Heritage to better serve Florida's fast-growing, diverse foodservice marketplace and strengthen Heritage's commitment and support to its OEM partners and their factory authorized servicers.
The central distribution point of Orlando offers one-day delivery by ground transportation to many locations throughout the state, saving customers critical time and money. With more in-stock parts available, customers local to Orlando have an increased opportunity to order and receive parts on the same day by going to the Orlando office's parts counter.
"This investment enables us to provide an even more expansive and meaningful parts inventory to one of our fastest growing markets," said John T. McDonough, chief executive officer and president of Heritage Foodservice Group. "This move demonstrates our commitment to always deliver Genuine OEM Parts where and when the customer needs them. We share in a role with facility managers and service agents to increase operational uptime. Having inventory on the ground meets that promise and reduces costs for our customers in Florida."
With over 800 OEM partners; 120 dedicated parts specialists delivering 99+ percent parts identification accuracy; 98+ percent same day shipping performance on stock items; and the largest inventory of in-stock parts in the industry, Heritage Parts operates from a strong foundation as the leading provider of 100% Genuine OEM replacement parts.
