Nike has announced plans to expand the distribution footprint of its Northridge facility in Memphis, Tennessee.
According to the company, the expansion will create ‘a centralized, multi-product engine for wholesale and retail distribution, supporting Nike’s long-term business growth in North America.’
“We continue to invest in the potential of our business to generate long-term sustainable, profitable growth as we stay laser focus on creating the best product, building close connections with consumers and bringing excitement to the marketplace with compelling retail experiences,” said Elliott Hill, Vice President and General Manager of Nike North America.
“The Northridge investment is a commitment that will help enable Nike’s future growth and bring new opportunities into Memphis.”
The multi-product engine allows Nike to invest in systems capabilities for future capacity and build a more responsive supply chain that will enable future growth. The new facility is expected to come online in 2014.
