Fisher Auto Parts to open 217,000-square-foot Massachusetts distribution center

The Chicopee facility is located between three existing Fisher distribution centers, allowing for further store expansion throughout New England, New Jersey and New York

Chicopee, Mass.—David Reid, chief operations officer, Fisher Auto Parts, has announced the purchase of a 217,000-square-foot distribution center on 12 acres located in Chicopee, which is the second largest city in western Massachusetts.

Equipped with 32 loading docks, the new facility will become operational once it is fully outfitted with features to optimize efficiencies, including state-of-the art logistical and material handling technology, picking modules, conveyor systems, warehouse management software, and expedited will call and local delivery. 

The Chicopee location is strategically located between three existing Fisher distribution centers, allowing for further store expansion in Connecticut, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Maine, Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Vermont. Up to 150 stores will be serviced by the new facility.

The new Chicopee facility adds 217,000 square feet to Fisher’s distribution center footprint of more than 2.5 million square feet. Supplying 19 states in which the company currently does business, the nine Fisher distribution centers are linked daily to provide over 92 percent fill rates, extensive product coverage and overnight delivery from a company-owned fleet.

To facilitate future expansion, Fisher Auto Parts invests heavily to modernize and increase space, enhance its distribution network, and grow market share by increasing inventory availability and service levels with programs like “Out the Door in 4” minutes or less. In addition, over 50 Greenfield locations have been opened or are scheduled to open by the end of 2024, including several mega-hub locations.

“We believe in the adage that no matter what our lot in life, we should build something on it,” said Reid. “There are much larger competitors; however, due to the highly capable team that we are honored to work with, we can be proud of our past results as we strive for future growth. We are especially grateful to all of our channel partners, including customers, suppliers, APSG associates, and, in particular, team members for their unwavering dedication to outstanding customer service.”

With 500 company-owned locations and approximately 100 independent jobbers located in 19 states, Fisher Auto Parts is a member of the Automotive Parts Services Group (APSG) and Federated Auto Parts.
