Yamaha Opens New Warehouse
Yamaha Electronics Corp. announced this week that it has opened a new warehouse in Elwood, Ill., for shipping products to dealers in the Midwest and East Coast regions. It joins the company’s existing facility in Southern California.
“With the Chicago-area warehouse, we significantly reduce the time it takes to deliver products to most of our dealers,” the company’s general manager for finance and administration, Art Serksnas, said as part of the announcement. “Shortening the distance products need to travel also guards against issues such as mechanical failure and weather conditions that often affect delivery times.”
