ELKHART, Ind. — Days Distribution and Logistics a division of Days Corporation has been serving Elkhart, Indiana, and the surrounding area for over 50 years. Days Distribution has seen a percent growth of business this year from the RV Industry.
“Eighty percent of our products and services support the RV Industry”, stated Kevin Schmidt, Days Corporation COO. “Our “public” service provision of warehousing and delivery is non-title held. We are not a re-seller of any product, which allows each of our manufacturing accounts to represent their sales responsibilities directly,” Jim Sproatt stated. “In the early 1960’s Days had been providing warehousing for all of the major appliances manufactures per their requests for us to provide warehousing and delivery to the growing mobile home industry.”
The peak of the mobile home market was the significant start to the RV market. “We began providing products to companies that was in both markets”, Sproatt concluded.
Days Distribution has been reinvesting in their resources, equipment, and technology to be able to continue providing an on time guarantee and also value added services for their customers. Looking at Days Distribution from the outside you do not see what they offer on the inside. The facilities and equipment are organized and clean, which makes Days Distribution more than just a warehouse. Each customer has their own customer service representative for easy communication as well as access to a secured web portal to view their inventory in real time.
