The Raymond Corporation is celebrating the 35th anniversary of the Raymond parts distribution center in Syracuse, New York.

GREENE, N.Y. — The Raymond Corporation is celebrating the 35th anniversary of the Raymond parts distribution center located in Syracuse, New York. The parts distribution center in Syracuse celebrated with a luncheon for its employees and special guest speakers, including Steve Raymond, the first general manager of the Raymond parts distribution center, grandson of founder George Raymond Sr., and current president of Raymond Handling Concepts Corporation. Steve Raymond was a driving force in getting the Syracuse location ramped up for parts distribution to customers.

The Raymond parts distribution center opened its doors in October 1980 to fill the need for a warehouse dedicated to parts supplies and distribution. A building and site in East Syracuse, New York, was chosen due to its central location and ease of access to ship parts, allowing orders to be quickly transported via air or truck.  

“The parts distribution center has evolved from its fast-paced beginnings in 1980 to a 24/7/365 sophisticated operation with warehouse management systems and the latest technology,” says Jim Schaefer, general manager of operations, at Raymond’s parts distribution center. “We look forward to the next 35 years of aftermarket excellence here at Raymond’s parts distribution center.”
