Kering has announced the development of its new operations centre in Wayne, New Jersey. The company is ushering in a new operating model, with a substantial reorganisation and streamlining of its current logistics footprint, with new investments in the US, Asia, and Italy. Kering manages the development of a series of renowned houses in fashion and apparel.

Kering is building its state-of-the-art office, repair and distribution centre in Wayne, New Jersey to replace its current facility in Secaucus. The new development, located at 150 Totowa Road, is under construction on a 31.8-acre property. The resulting modern facility will serve as the company’s North American operations centre, according to Kering.

In addition to the 770,000 square-feet distribution centre, the building will hold an 80,000 square-feet office area with the total interior space measuring over 400,000 square-feet. The development will also include a 17,500 square-feet repair centre for its products.

On track to open in 2020, Kering will apply for LEED Gold certification for the building upon its completion, reinforcing the company’s commitment to sustainability and dedication to fostering a higher quality-of-life in workspaces. The construction project is the second largest structure in Wayne township and joins other redevelopment efforts in the area. (GK)
