PVH Corp, one of the most admired fashion and lifestyle companies in the world, will create 575 jobs and invest $77.6 million in a new distribution and warehouse facility in Palmetto, Georgia. With more than 38,000 associates in 40 countries, PVH will continue to strengthen its relationships with the Georgia Ports Authority to expand its distribution network.

The port of Savannah in Georgia will remain the top point of entry and is well positioned to support the future import volume growth as a result of the new facility, a press release from the office of the Governor, Georgia, said. 

“We are excited that PVH Corp chose to locate their new distribution and warehouse facility in Georgia,” said Governor Brian P Kemp of Georgia. “By creating 575 jobs and investing $77.6 million in the Palmetto community, PVH’s positive impact will be felt statewide and bring even more business to our booming Savannah port.” 

With a history going back over 135 years, PVH has excelled at growing brands and businesses with rich American heritages, becoming one of the largest apparel companies in the world. PVH owns the iconic Calvin Klein, Tommu Hilfiger, Van Heusen, Izod, Arrow, Speedo, Warner’s, Olga and Geoffrey Beene brands, as well as the digital-centric True & Co intimates brand, and markets a variety of goods under these and other nationally and internationally known owned and licensed brands. 

“We are proud to be partnering with the State of Georgia to expand our footprint here, and we look forward to welcoming hundreds of new PVH associates to our company, where we are guided by our core values – individuality, partnership, passion, integrity and accountability. PVH is an organisation where every individual is valued,” said Kevin Urban, executive vice president of logistic services at PVH. “PVH strives to make positive impacts in the places we do business, and our greatest opportunity to do that comes from the passion and integrity of our associates.” 

“We are thrilled to welcome PVH Corp to Fulton County and are ready to staff their new center with the state’s most qualified workforce,” said Fulton County commission chairman Robb Pitts. “This is a great win not only for the city of Palmetto, but for all of our communities.” 

“Our city’s employment opportunities took a giant leap with this deal,” said Palmetto Mayor J Clark Boddie. “We are excited for our current residents that will be able to expand their careers here, and look forward to welcoming new members to our wonderful community as a result of this win.” 

“The southern half of Fulton County is primed for business expansion and development,” said Al Nash, CEO of Select Fulton. “With quick access to our logistical infrastructure, and a workforce that is second to none, we are excited to watch PVH Corp prosper in Palmetto.”   

PVH also operates a distribution center in McDonough that will continue to operate. (PC)
