Crocs, a world leader in innovative casual footwear for men, women and children, has opened its new distribution centre in Dayton, Ohio. The new 550,000 square foot facility will serve as the distribution centre for the company’s operations in the US and Canada. It replaces the company’s current facility located outside of Los Angeles, California.

The Dayton facility is approximately 40 per cent larger than the company’s prior facility, is staffed by a vibrant and talented workforce, and brings new automation to Crocs. As a result, throughput is expected to be approximately 50 per cent greater than at the former facility. Those benefits, in combination with the facility’s location in the central part of the country, will significantly increase speed-to-market capabilities for wholesale customers and e-commerce consumers, according to Crocs.

The facility is expected to employ over 150 full-time individuals, who will receive competitive pay and benefits. Positions will range from hourly to managerial, and additional temporary personnel will be added at peak periods.

“The opening of our new Americas distribution centre in Dayton, Ohio is essential to our future, as it will support our rapidly growing business and provide an enhanced customer experience,” Bill Bine, senior vice president, global supply chain said.

“We are excited to make Dayton the home of our new Americas distribution centre. Everyone we have worked with since the inception of this project has gone out of their way to welcome us to this wonderful city. We look forward to becoming deeply involved in, and giving back to, our new community,” Shannon Sisler, senior vice president and chief people officer of the company said.
