DEX Heavy Duty Parts LLC, a Volvo Group subsidiary and leading supplier of recycled, renovated and surplus heavy-duty truck parts, is opening a second facility in Okla- homa City. DEX, which also has a location in Advance, N.C., offers new life to trucks by offering parts to second- and third-genera- tion truck owners. Volvo invested $5 million in the 153,000-sq.-ft. building, which is located on 25 acres near major highways and will have a payroll of 30. "A second DEX Heavy Duty Parts facility enabl[es] us to reach even more distributors," says Director of Operations Darin Redmon. "Extending the life of used parts through recycling and refurbishing is good for the environment and benefi- cial to our customers. We are the only OEM that continues to offer a complete lifecy- cle channel for its products, and it's clear from customer response that there is grow- ing market demand for these parts because of the product offering and environmental impacts."
