National Parts Depot Completes Major Facility Expansion
Chester, NY (October, 14 2009) – National Parts Depot is proud to announce the completion of the expansion of its current company owned facility. The new addition will double the size of the existing building and will provide necessary space for the growing needs of both our Product Engineering Services and Sales divisions. Ground was officially broken on March 1, 2009 and completed September 1, 2009. According to VP Barry Gordon, "This expansion forges a strategic and powerful commitment that further prioritizes our dedication to all NPD customers."
Unprecedented growth in the Product Engineering Services business fueled the need for a more efficient and functional work space under one roof. This expansion allows the Product Engineering Services Division to further develop its array of services while creating a number of high quality jobs to meet the growing demands of our customers.
In 2003, National Parts Depot officially established the NPD Remanufacturing Department (NPD REMAN) to provide printed circuit board repair for OEM clients. In February 2009, that division officially changed its name to Product Engineering Services Division (PESD) to more accurately reflect the growing nature of the business. Currently the division repairs more than 25,000 units and other products annually with a return rate of less than 1%. Since its inception, the division’s services have expanded from PCB repair to include Test Fixture Design, Contract Manufacturing, Inventory Management Solutions, Advanced Exchange Services, Factory Modifications, Factory Refurbishment, Software Upgrades, Sustaining Engineering, Warranty Processing, Next Day Turn-a-round on Board Repairs, Board Banking, Laptop and Desktop Computer Repair, and Technical Support. Likewise during that time, the division’s staff has grown from a single employee to 14 full time technicians, two electrical engineers, a receiving department, and a quality assurance department. The division’s goal is to become the vendor of choice for PCB repair, manufacturing services, sustaining engineering, and test-fixture design.
While this addition supports the expansion of our Product Engineering
Services Division, it also provides much needed space for our parts warehousing.
Ultimately, this translates to increased stock quantities, shorter lead times,
and both vertical and horizontal expansion of our current product lines. NPD is
in the process of doubling the number of account managers in an effort to meet
growing demand and better serve the needs of our customers. Over the past 24
years the nature of our business has been ever evolving to meet the changing
needs of business; NPD continues to deliver innovative products and solutions
with the utmost commitment to quality and reliability that set us apart in the
