Westport began its operations in Louisville, Kentucky in 1986 as a Just in Time service provider of forged-machined I-beams, and steering knuckles/arms to Ford Motor Company. Commitment and dedication to our customers, and their individual needs allowed our company’s presence to grow stronger in the United States. With that growth, our services grew to include assembled Front Steer Axle Modules for: commercial vehicles, recreational vehicles, as well as other various axles for construction vehicles.
Through the success of Westport’s Axle Division, came the inception of our Logistics Division. In 2005 Westport introduced its Logistics Division by providing Supply chain Services such as Component Integration, Broadcast Sequencing, ILVS, and other high demand services in 4 states across the eastern half of North America.
In 2008, the Logistics Division increased their Supply Chain Service capabilities by introducing and opening Kitting and Metering facilities in Avon, Ohio. As Westport’s Supply Chain Services and Logistics Customers continued to expand, our company’s core business of Axle Assembly also grew. That same year Westport opened a 205,000 square foot Axle Assembly facility in Roanoke, Virginia providing service to Volvo.
Also in 2008, Westport again expanded and opened a Manufacturing Division in Louisville, Kentucky where we machine components for the commercial vehicles market.
In the summer of 2012, Westport opened up a Chassis Assembly Plant in Breinigsville, Pennsylvania servicing Mack. To date, the 3 divisions of Westport continue to thrive. Our dedicated work forces at all of our facilities across the United States strive daily to achieve quality, value, service, and continuous improvement for our customers with an added focus on lean efficiencies, and our ever present awareness to the conservation, and protection of the environment. It is through this dedication that Westport and its employees truly define the meaning of customer partnership, and our constant commitment to it.
Our corporate offices are located in Louisville, Kentucky and to date nationally, have over 1 million square feet of assembly warehouses and service facilities, which is indicative to Westport’s mission to be “Your strongest link”.
