Gap Plans $3.1 Million Expansion At Its Gallatin, Tennessee, Distribution Hub

07/14/2016
Gap Inc., the global retailer, will invest $3.1 million to expand its distribution Center in Sumner County, Tennessee. The company plans on creating more than 100 new jobs at the company’s Gallatin campus on Gap Boulevard during the next five years.

Most of the new capital will go into technology upgrades as the company expands online fulfillment capabilities in Middle Tennessee, according to Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development.

Gap Inc. is one of the largest employers in Sumner County, operating more than 2.8 million square feet of distribution space among its three warehouses in Gallatin, officials said. The Sumner County campus is one of Gap Inc.’s largest distribution centers. Increased online sales demand is driving Gap Inc.’s latest expansion in Gallatin.

“For nearly 20 years, Gap Inc.’s Gallatin Distribution Center has served as a proud employer of Tennesseans,” Gap Inc. Vice President of Logistics Kevin Kuntz said. “As a premier logistics provider, we continue to find innovative ways that enable us to dynamically, quickly and reliably deliver product to both retail stores and online customers. With the expansion of our presence in Gallatin, we look forward to providing opportunities for members of our valued community.”

“Just three years ago, Gap Inc. invested $35 million to bring 90 jobs to Gallatin,” Governor Bill Haslam said. “Gap Inc. has been a cornerstone of Tennessee’s robust logistics and distribution industry for nearly two decades and we welcome their continued commitment to create more jobs for Sumner County. The growth in Gallatin by one of the world’s leading retail brands brings us another step closer as we work to make Tennessee the No. 1 location in the Southeast for high quality jobs.”

“Like many retailers today, Gap Inc. is now putting more resources into e-commerce. And they are also finding that Tennessee, with its central location and world-class infrastructure, is the perfect place to do so,” Community Development Commissioner Randy Boyd said. “More than 263,000 Tennesseans work in the transportation, logistics and distribution industry. Gap Inc. is a major part of this thriving sector and we thank them for continuing to invest in Tennessee and bringing more than 100 new jobs to Sumner County.”
