Under Armour opened a one-million-square-foot distribution and warehouse facility outside of Nashville in Mount Juliet, Tenn. on Monday. The $100 million investment project will create 1,500 new jobs in the area over the next five years.
The facility features an onsite fitness center for employees, as well as state-of-the-art equipment, including a 12-plus mile conveyor system, automated receiving technology, voice-directed-picking software and advanced sortation methods. Under Armour plans to have nearly 300 employees based at the Mt. Juliet facility by the end of 2015.
The new distribution center is Under Armour’s third in the U.S., joining the original warehouse in Baltimore and another located in Rialto, Calif.
