01/23/2018
VF Corporation, a provider of branded lifestyle apparel, footwear, and accessories, will expand into in Jonestown, Lebanon County, Pennsylvania. The company plans to create more than 175 new jobs.

The company will lease a 500,000-square-foot facility in Jonestown to serve as a distribution center for products in its Vans, The North Face and Timberland brands. VF plans to invest up to $52 million into the project, which will create more than 175 new jobs over the next three years.

“As our direct-to-consumer business continues to grow, we see the consumer-focused opportunity to expand our distribution operations so that we can more quickly service our consumers in the Northeastern U.S.,” said Steve Rendle, Chairman, President, and CEO of VF.

“Jonestown is the ideal place for our new distribution center and warehouse given its skilled workforce and geographic location. We’re excited about expanding our operations in Pennsylvania and are appreciative of the efforts by the Governor’s Action Team to help make today’s announcement possible,” he added.

VF received a funding proposal from the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED) for $358,000 in Job Creation Tax Credits to be distributed upon creation of the new jobs and $48,600 in WEDnetPA funding for employee training.

“Originally founded in Pennsylvania, VF has a long history in our state,” said Governor Tom Wolf. “We’re pleased that VF has chosen to expand on this successful foundation by bringing more than 175 good-paying jobs to families in Lebanon County. Pennsylvania continues to attract leading, global companies like VF given our exceptional business climate and strong infrastructure.”
