Transamerican Auto Parts holding second job fair in Carlisle
Following what it called a successful job fair in September, California-based Transamerican Auto Parts will hold a second event for job seekers this week in Carlisle, home of its soon-to-be-open distribution center and retail facility.
Transamerican, a leading manufacturer, wholesaler and retailer of aftermarket parts and accessories for trucks, Jeeps, SUVs and four-wheel drive vehicles, will open at 5 Logistics Drive in Carlisle.
Slated for a January opening, the facility is 205,090 square feet and will be the largest of the company's six nationwide distribution centers.
The 4 Wheel Parts retail store also will be the first in Pennsylvania for the company, which has more than 80 stores across the country.
The company will hold the three-day job fair at the Comfort Suites in downtown Carlisle. The event will run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.
Transamerican will hire more than 70 people to run the new facility, which will serve the company's aggressive expansion plans. Officials said they intend to open 10 more retail stores next year, many in the Midwest and Northeast, and the Carlisle facility will play a role in serving those sites.
