New warehouse will serve customers in the Chicago area.

ST. LOUIS - Emerson Motor Technologies officially opened the doors of its newest regional warehouse Jan. 19 in Aurora, Ill. The warehouse will serve the Chicago area and provide next-day delivery of parts to customers in the upper Midwest.

The facility will provide access to Emerson distributors to drop-in replacement motors for Dayton, A.O. Smith, Universal, Century, General Electric, Leeson, Marathon and Baldor brand units.

"We are excited to further expand our regional availability with the addition of the upper Midwest regional warehouse," said Joe Klein, director of marketing. "Our existing regional warehouses in York, Pa., and Chino, Calif., have received positive responses from our customers. We fully expect that this warehouse will deliver that same value by providing quick availability of Emerson Motor Technologies-produced and branded products to the marketplace."
