PRATTVILLE, Alabama — Kinedyne LLC, which designs, manufactures and distributes cargo control technologies, has opened a new distribution facility in Prattville, Alabama.

Kinedyne began consolidating engineering, manufacturing, quality control, supply chain management, customer service and government contract functions within its 200,000-square-foot facility in late 2016, to improve overall speed, efficiency and productivity.

Equipped with the latest inventory management technology, the capabilities of the new distribution, logistics and warehouse operation will significantly improve Kinedyne’s order processing, lead time and accuracy.

“With over 20 years of experience in operational strategy and global manufacturing, Doug Apelt, vice-president – operations, oversees all operational processes in the United States and Canada,” Dan Schlotterbeck, president of Kinedyne LLC, said.

“Doug’s operational expertise and leadership of the Prattville team has benefited this expansion initiative and continues to strengthen and improve the efficiency and effectiveness of our overall North American operations.”

Kinedyne has called Prattville home for several decades. With this expansion and nearly 300 employees, it remains among Autauga County’s largest employers. Kinedyne’s distribution facility now supports the distribution of the many products made in its Prattville manufacturing operation.
