Value Vision Media, Inc., a multichannel electronic retailer operating as ShopHQ, will expand its Bowling Green, Kentucky
, distribution and call center.
The expansion project will include the addition of more than 300,000 square feet of space and installation of a new warehouse management system, which is designed to improve the ordering and shipping process, slated for completion in 2015.
"We originally chose to establish our distribution and call center in Bowling Green because of its ideal location for logistics and the low cost of business
that the region provides," Keith Stewart, ShopHQ CEO explained. "But what has proved to be more valuable to ShopHQ and our success here is the support we receive from the community and leaders
. We are happy to call South Central Kentucky home and look forward to continuing to grow and expand here."
Over the next three years, the project will bring a total capital investment of $25 million to the region, as well as create up to 150 new, full-time positions and up to more than 100 new part-time positions.
Governor Steve Beshear
said, "I'm thrilled to celebrate ShopHQ's expansion and the creation of these new jobs. Through our top-notch workforce
and centralized location, ShopHQ has found great success in Bowling Green. I want to thank the company for its investment, and look forward to its impact on Kentucky families."
