For the first time in two decades, Southeastern Mills has broken ground with the opening of a new distribution center. The 140,000-sq-ft project has had a $6 million economic impact on the community.

“We’re excited to celebrate the opening of our new distribution center,” said Josh Trammell, business unit leader at the Center for Superior Logistics for Southeastern Mills. “This ground-breaking space will allow us to continue our history of excellence in service to our customers, provide avenues for continuous improvement through warehouse layout and state-of-the-art equipment, and position us well for future growth.”

The new plant will help Southeastern Mills service its customers around the world with approximately 300 shipments per month. It will have a video conferencing system that will allow everyone within the logistics team to participate in team meetings from multiple locations. Leading safety measures in place include automated doors with trailer restraints and a barrier system around the inside parameter of the warehouse.
