Regal Beloit opens distribution center in McAllen, Texas
Wisconsin-based electric motor manufacturer Regal Beloit opened a new distribution center in McAllen, Texas, aimed for the western United States, the company’s third facility in the McAllen-Reynosa area.
This 160,000-square-foot building, inside the Sharyland Business Park, will initially bring 30 jobs — and eventually up to 70 — and cost Regal Beloit US$ 20 million, revealed TheMonitor.com citing McAllen Economic Development Corporation President Keith Patridge as source.
Regal Beloit decided that it needed another distribution center along with the main one in Indianapolis, and this location was the right fit to service the western half of the United States.
Its Reynosa facility has 2,800 employees, which deals with all of eastern Mexico, said Corey Tyler, director of global logistics.
The company is a manufacturer of electronic motors and generators that employs 23,000 people in 75 facilities throughout the United States, Mexico, China, India and roughly 10 other countries, Schlemmer said.
Regal’s third facility in this area is about 200 yards away from this new one.
