Leggett & Platt Reconfigures Upfitting Facilities

May 09, 2015 - Press Release

Leggett & Platt Commercial Vehicle Products (CVP), manufacturer and installer of commercial van and pickup truck equipment, announced location changes to its installation facilities. To increase capabilities and continue to meet the needs of fleet customers, Leggett & Platt CVP announced the expansion of its Kansas City facility, opening of a new facility in Baltimore, and closure of Elyria, Ohio install facility.

Leggett & Platt CVP’s Kansas City facility was opened in July of 2014 to coincide with the Ford Transit being built at the Ford Kansas City Assembly Plant. With the success of the current facility, the company is expanding to a new build-to-suit facility in the underground SubTropolis complex, which will open July of this year. The 72,000-square foot SubTropolis location will include 10 acres of underground parking capable of storing 1,200 vehicles out of the elements, ensuring the utmost in vehicle protection during inclement weather.

Leggett & Platt CVP will continue to maintain flexible above ground vehicle storage as required as well as a commercial bailment pool for the Ford Transit. A Baltimore facility, located near the Baltimore port of entry for many compact vans manufactured outside of the U.S. will be fully operational this month. Leggett & Platt CVP’s new Baltimore facility will be capable of ship-thru for many compact utility platforms to include the Ford Transit Connect, Chevrolet Express and the new Ram ProMaster City. Leggett & Platt CVP will offer a commercial bailment pool in Baltimore for the Chevrolet City Express.

Due to OEM vehicle production changes in the mid-west, specifically the end of life of the Ford E-Series Cargo Van, the expansion of Kansas City and opening of Baltimore locations, Leggett & Platt CVP’s Elyria, Ohio, installation facility will be closed. Leggett & Platt CVP will be working with fleets, dealers and fleet management companies to ensure that the wind down of this facility does not impact any customer requirements.
