ASICS plans to open new distribution center in Mississippi
Jan '10
ASICS America, a leading athletic footwear and apparel manufacturer, announced the plans to open a new distribution center in Marshall County, Mississippi in 2011 as a direct response to the growth of the company.

Phase I of the project includes a new 520,000 square foot, 38 acres distribution center which is scheduled to open in April 2011. This new facility, which is about 20 miles from the current Southaven, MISS Distribution Center, will focus on shipping footwear. The current location, a 350,000 square foot facility, will distribute apparel and accessories and will have the ability to store additional footwear during high volume months. Roughly 200 employees are estimated for the initial start up phase.

ASICS will partner with Fortna, a supply chain solutions company based out of Reading, PA for the design, procurement, material handling systems and installation. "The new distribution center will provide more square footage and the advanced level of technology required to meet ASICS growing demand for years to come," says Gary Jordan, V.P. of Operations, Chief Supply Chain Officer.

ASICS Corporation, with more than 60 years of footwear manufacturing experience, offers a full line of performance-driven athletic shoes and technical active sports apparel and accessories.
