King Engine Bearings has relocated its North American headquarters to a larger office building and warehouse on Okner Parkway in Livingston, NJ. The new location has about 50 percent more warehousing storage capacity than the previous location in nearby Cedar Grove.
The facility will serve as the base of operations for King USA’s executive offices, customer support call center, sales and accounting departments, and logistics.
It will help King maintain the widest range of engine bearings for import and domestic applications, new and old, and with extensive undersize options, said Limor Karpatkin, vice president of sales and marketing. “The new location enables us to keep growing and to inventory a deeper and wider range of products,” she said.
The relocation follows the expansion of King’s manufacturing facilities in Israel and coincides with “the unprecedented growth in engine bearings sales over the last few years,” according to a company statement. Much of this growth comes from an increased foothold in the worldwide race market, as well as further penetration of OE replacement markets, according to King.
