CNH Industrial Parts & Service, the aftersales product support division of CNH Industrial (NYSE: CNHI / MI: CNHI), unveiled its $13 million Special Processing Center at 210 South Enterprise Drive in Lebanon, Ind., at an official grand opening event and ribbon-cutting ceremony for dealers, suppliers, local and state officials and media.

"We are especially grateful to the many dedicated individuals who made this official grand opening possible," said Keith Shadrick, Senior Director of Operations and Logistics for CNH Industrial Parts & Service in North America.

"It's been a challenge to complete this project on time and on target, especially in the wake of the November 17 tornado that caused significant damage to our Master Parts Depot facility just a few hundred yards from here. Our team has done an unbelievable job."

For the last three weeks, CNH Industrial has been focused on repairing and rebuilding its Master Parts Depot facility, while completing the new Special Processing Center. In fact, several operations that had been located in the damaged Master Parts Depot were moved recently to the new Special Processing Center.

Such swiftly coordinated efforts have helped employees resume normal work schedules and stay on task. Salaried workers were recalled just two days after the storm, and hourly employees were compensated for lost work days until they could be recalled.

In addition, CNH Industrial and its employees around the world are working with the American Red Cross to help people who were impacted by the November 17 tornadoes that devastated the Midwest. CNH Industrial made an initial corporate contribution of $50,000 to the American Red Cross, and is matching dollar-for-dollar all employee donations to the American Red Cross.

CNH Industrial is the Lebanon area's largest employer and currently employs an estimated 500 full-time and an additional 200 contract workers at the Lebanon Business Park. The Special Processing Center is the company's third location, and is expected to add 100 new area jobs in the coming months.

From the three facilities, CNH Industrial Parts & Service serves 10 regional parts distribution centers that supply daily parts to New Holland, Case IH and Case Construction Equipment dealerships throughout North America. The new Special Processing Center significantly enhances and expands the overall capabilities of the CNH Industrial North American parts operations.

"Our new Special Processing Center has several unique capabilities, such as a specialized warehousing center dedicated to supporting our import and export operations, and a new logistics command and control operation for our extensive parts delivery system," said Shadrick.

"Now, we can deliver both depot-stocked and supplier ship-direct parts via our industry-leading Daily Stock Order delivery system. We'll also assemble and package repair and maintenance kits in our new state-of-the-art kitting center, put protective finishes on parts in our new paint booth, and protect parts during shipment with the new facility's specialized packaging capabilities."

CNH Industrial is eligible to receive from the Indiana Economic Development Corporation up to $650,000 in conditional tax credits and up to $100,000 in training grants based on the company's job creation plans. In addition, the City of Lebanon is providing tax credits of up to $285,000, for a total incentive package in excess of $1 million.

The company will receive incentives as CNH Industrial's Lebanon campus actively fills open positions at the Special Processing Center in the coming months. The company offers competitive wages and benefits, along with opportunities for career growth.
