Global retailer of clothing accessories and personal care products retailer GAP Inc said it would invest $3.1 million in its Gallatin campus over the next five years and would create more than 100 new jobs at the company's Sumner County distribution centre in Tennessee state.

Most of the new capital will go into technology upgrades as the company expands online fulfillment capabilities in Middle Tennessee, company officials announced in the presence of state Gov. Bill Haslam and Economic and Community Development Commissioner Randy Boyd on Thursday.

Three years ago, Gap Inc. invested $35 million to bring 90 jobs to Gallatin. This reflects the company's continued commitment to create more jobs for Sumner County, Haslam said adding that the retailer has been a cornerstone of Tennessee's robust logistics and distribution industry that employs 2,63,000 people collectively.

The growth in Gallatin by Gap Inc., one of the largest employers in Sumner County, brings us another step closer to make Tennessee the No. 1 location in the Southeast for high quality jobs,” he said.

According to Boyd, Gap Inc. was now putting more resources into e-commerce. Increased online sales demand was driving its latest expansion in Gallatin. The new hires are needed to expand online fulfillment capabilities for e-commerce sales on Gap Inc.'s brand websites.

Gap Inc. VP of Logistics Kevin Kuntz said that as a premier logistics provider, they continued to find innovative ways to dynamically, quickly and reliably deliver product to both retail stores and online customers. “With the expansion of our presence in Gallatin, we look forward to providing opportunities for members of our valued community,” he added.

Headquartered in San Francisco, Gap Inc.'s clothing and accessory brands include Gap, Banana Republic, Old Navy, Athleta, and Intermix. It operates about 3,300 company-operated stores across the globe. (SH)
