Center Enables CarParts.com to reach 94% of the U.S. in 2 days or less, and reduce freight expense

U.S. Auto Parts Network, Inc. (NASDAQ:PRTS), one of the largest online providers of aftermarket automotive parts and accessories, announces the opening of a 125,000 square foot Las Vegas, Nevada distribution center. The facility will deliver new parts to customers across the western United States, servicing all of the brands U.S. Auto Parts Network has to offer, including CarParts.com, JC Whitney and Auto Parts Warehouse.

The warehouse will use state-of-the-art equipment to handle over 2,000 packages a day, and will pump at least $5 million annually into the Las Vegas economy. The distribution center will employ about 100 people in a variety of positions.

"We're excited to be opening our distribution center in Las Vegas," said CarParts.com COO and CFO David Meniane. "We aim to become an integral part of the Las Vegas community. Indeed, it was Las Vegas' hard working, high-skilled workforce that attracted us to the area in the first place. This top-of-the-line facility, along with the talent in Las Vegas, will give us the ability to deliver parcel packages to 94% of the country within two days' time, getting drivers across the United States the right parts for all of their auto repair and maintenance needs."

Local businesses, including Crown, Canyon Electric and 3GC, were responsible for the construction and set-up, which was completed ahead-of-schedule. CarParts.com will offer tours of the facility and give interviews to interested journalists.
