Torqued Distribution, creator of San Francisco-based Warehouse-as-a-Service (WaaS) technology and No Cost 3PL (NC3PL) program, has officially opened its new Michigan warehouse and national sales office at 1407 Allen Dr. , suite G , at Troy.
Torqued began by importing hard-to-find racing and performance brands from England and Europe. The first imported brand was Tillett Racing Seats. Tillett racing seats are found in all professional motorsports, from drag racing to F1, and they’ve even been featured in a “James Bond” movie.
“We have the Detroit Grand Prix, the M1 Concourse, Woodward Ave., the Big 3, and the new SEMA Garage just down the street,” says Lou Lobsinger, Torqued Sales and Marketing Manager and General Manager of the new site. . “There’s no better place to be than here in Detroit, especially as we introduce new technologies through our WaaS and NC3PL programs.”
The new 5,100 square foot space currently employs five people, with plans to add more. It offers many value-added digital services via WaaS to its partners, such as e-commerce store applications for live inventory, pricing and order fulfillment.
For manufacturers, the Torqued No Cost 3PL program offers a fulfillment solution for Shopify direct-to-consumer and other e-commerce stores; international manufacturers seeking distribution in the United States; Sales on eBay and Amazon marketplaces; and any other omnichannel sales that require fast and cost-effective execution.
Today, Torqued maintains sole distributor status in the United States for Tillett Racing, Nuke Performance, obp Motorsport and others, as well as distributing popular brands such as Holley, Bell Helmets, CSF, Detroit Muscle, MOMO Italy and XClutch.
“We’ve doubled the number of brands on our range card over the past year and we’re adding new dealers every day, expansion has always been in the business plan, and we’re excited to have a footprint in the Motor City,” said Tim Trampedach, CEO of Torqued Distribution.
