A lot can change in 40 years – and at the Huntington, Indiana, campus of Bendix Commercial Vehicle Systems, it has: What was a 30-person warehouse and distribution center in February 1980 has grown into a leading-edge, multifaceted operation encompassing multiple facilities and employing nearly 450 people across the city.
What hasn’t changed is the primary reason Bendix Huntington is marking four decades of expansion, success, and community leadership.
“We’ve always relied on our employees’ knowledge and flexibility, and their desire to do a good job,” said Christopher Camp, Bendix plant manager in Huntington. “The culture here has instilled an incredible sense of ownership in our employees, and I can’t say enough about their commitment to do the right thing – whether it’s helping to protect the highways of North America through quality, looking out for their fellow employees through workplace safety, or aiming to make our community a better place through their time and talents.”
Bendix’s Huntington operation includes manufacturing and assembly facilities, as well as Bendix’s primary North American distribution center.
The Bendix Huntington team handles air compressor remanufacturing; assembly of electronics, including sensors, electronic control units, radar units, and cameras for advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS); manufacture of integrated modules and engine vibration dampers; and brake shoe remanufacturing. In 2019, the company acquired a new location for expansion and realignment of its Huntington campus that will bring the Bendix presence to 855,000 square feet across four buildings.
The site manages more than 40,000 Bendix part numbers, distributing to more than 4,500 aftermarket ship-to locations and 1,500 manufacturer ship-to locations.
