BOLINGBROOK, Ill.-S&S Activewear announces the opening of its newest warehouse in the greater Atlanta area. Based in McDonough, Georgia, the facility adds to the company’s existing network of locations in Illinois, Kansas, New Jersey, California, and Texas.
“Having the new Atlanta distribution center in operation by early 2018 was an ambitious goal, but our team delivered,” states Frank Myers, chief operating officer at S&S Activewear. “The addition of our Georgia facility marks our presence as a complete national wholesaler, and we’ve been racing to get there for our customers by opening two new facilities in under six months.”
In late 2017, the company opened the first of the two aforementioned facilities with a distribution center in Fort Worth, Texas.
The new location offers one-day delivery to Southeastern states including Georgia, Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina, Alabama, and Tennessee and boasts 505,000 sq. ft. of space. Alongside shorter ship times, the company says it estimates it will be prepared to offer will call for local customers by June 2018. The Georgia warehouse brings the company’s total square footage nationwide to more than 3 million sq. ft. combined with its other locations. The company says it appreciates the support and collaboration of local and regional entities, such as the offices of the State of Georgia and Henry County.
“We’re very proud of all the hard work and preparation our team brought to this project,” says Jim Shannon, president of S&S. “The State of Georgia’s Training Commission was highly impressed with our team and commended S&S on an outstanding training program.”
