10/06/2016
Wayfair, one of the world’s largest e-commerce destinations for home furnishings and décor, will locate their newest distribution center in a recently completed spec building in Henry County, Georgia. The company will generate more than 150 new jobs and drive significant investment over the next two years.

Headquartered in Boston, Massachusetts, and founded in 2002, Wayfair offers shoppers a selection of home goods across all styles and price points, customer service and the convenience of online shopping. The company’s new operation will service the southeastern U.S. The company will create jobs in logistics and fulfillment and lease the Trammell Crow Building at 130 Distribution Drive in McDonough.

“We look forward to expanding our team in Henry County as we build our distribution network to keep pace with Wayfair’s rapid growth,” said James Savarese, Chief Operations Officer, Wayfair. “The state of Georgia has been a tremendous partner in welcoming us to the state, and we are excited to join the local community and begin hiring for our open roles.”

“Wayfair’s decision to create jobs and invest in Henry County speaks to Georgia’s thriving commercial infrastructure and expansive distribution resources, both of which are key components for growing companies,” said Governor Nathan Deal. “By utilizing Georgia’s logistics framework and skilled workforce, Wayfair will continue its considerable growth and further affirm Georgia’s reputation as a top state for business and economic ingenuity.”

“Henry County’s access to the Atlanta market and the Port of Savannah continues to attract investment from growing companies like Wayfair,” said Henry County Development Authority Executive Director Charlie Moseley. “We are thrilled to welcome them to our community and look forward to working together for their continued success. We also appreciate all the work from our partners on this project including Georgia Power, the Metro Atlanta Chamber and the Georgia Department of Economic Development.”

“Wayfair is a leader in the e-commerce industry, and we are pleased to welcome such a great brand to Metro Atlanta,” said Hala Moddelmog, President/CEO of the Metro Atlanta Chamber. “Their expansion into our region confirms our position as a transportation hub and as an emerging epicenter for innovation-based companies.”
