3PL Evans Distribution Systems has expanded with a new operation in Itasca, Ill., to support automotive suppliers.

The Itasca warehouse officially opened on April 30 to support multiple suppliers to the Dodge Dart, which is being produced at Chrysler's Belvidere Assembly Plant. Evans has been expanding in other markets since the beginning of 2012, including 100,000 square feet in Romulus, Mich., that opened in May.

"Continuing our expansion in the Midwest where Evans is an established 3PL makes Itasca a great fit, and we are excited to have the opportunity tosupport several customers with their growth in this new market," says Leslie Ajlouny, vice president of business development.
