Brooks Running Company Plans Distribution Hub in Whitestown, Indiana

08/09/2017
Brooks Running Company, a high-performance running shoe and apparel company, plans to open a new footwear and apparel distribution center in Whitestown, Indiana. The company plans to create more than 130 new jobs by 2023.

The Seattle-based company will invest in the community by building a new 400,000-square-foot facility in the AllPoints at Anson Business Park in Whitestown. The new facility, which is located adjacent to I-65, will serve customers across North America.

Brooks Running Company will break ground on the facility this fall, equipping it with product handling technology that will help the company deliver products to runners more timely and efficiently. The company plans to open its new Indiana distribution center in early 2019.

“With customers across the globe, we’re excited about building a new distribution center in Indiana where we’ll be closer to more runners,” said Holger Mueller, COO of Brooks Running Company. “Building a new world-class facility in Indiana will help us deliver products to runners more timely and efficiently, making it easier for people to go out and enjoy their run.”

As an incentive, Indiana Economic Development Corporation offered Brooks Running Company up to $800,000 in conditional tax credits based on the company’s job creation plans. These tax credits are performance based, meaning the company will be eligible to claim incentives only as Hoosiers are hired. Boone County and the town of Whitestown approved additional incentives at the request of the Boone County Economic Development Corporation.

“We are pleased to welcome Brooks Running Company to Indiana’s fastest-growing community,” said Whitestown Town Manager Dax Norton. “It’s encouraging to see yet another logistics distribution and fulfillment center move to our thriving e-commerce sector. We believe that Brooks will find AllPoints at Anson in Whitestown to be a place where their business will thrive."

"It’s great to welcome Brooks Running Company to Indiana, where we are running on all cylinders when it comes to building the best climate for doing business and creating jobs in the country,” said Governor Eric J. Holcomb. “By investing more than $30 billion over the next 20 years through Next Level Roads, we will elevate Indiana’s economic competitiveness, supporting current and new businesses like Brooks Running Company that rely on infrastructure to serve customers across the world.”
