Under Armour Invests More Than $100 Million In Mount Juliet, Tennessee, Distribution-Warehouse Center

10/02/2014
Under Armour, Inc. will build a new one million square foot distribution and warehousing facility in Beckwith Farms in Mount Juliet, Tennessee. Under Armour, a global leader of performance apparel, footwear and accessories, will invest more than $100 million and create 1,500 new jobs in Wilson County over the next five years.

“Under Armour’s mission is to make all athletes better, and that begins by building a great team and providing best in class service for our customers,” Under Armour COO/President of Product Kip Fulks said. “We take immense pride in partnering with Governor Haslam, Commissioner Hagerty, and the many other state and local officials who have joined our commitment to this mission and who have worked tirelessly to establish the ideal business climate in which everyone can flourish.”

The Mount Juliet facility, scheduled to open in early 2016, will be Under Armour’s third distribution facility in the United States, with the original warehouse in the company’s hometown of Baltimore, Maryland and the other location in Rialto, California. Under Armour also operates two Under Armour Factory House retail destinations in the state, located in Nashville and Sevierville.

“We want to welcome Under Armour to Tennessee and thank the company for choosing to invest and create 1,500 new jobs in Wilson County,” Governor Bill Haslam said. “Under Armour’s decision to build a new distribution and warehousing facility in Mount Juliet is another example of the business-friendly climate our state offers to companies around the world, and brings us one step closer toward our goal to make Tennessee the No. 1 location in the Southeast for high quality jobs.”

“Under Armour is an innovative, globally-renowned brand whose cutting-edge products are consistently seen on everyone from the world’s greatest athletes, to youth sports teams, to Tennesseans across the state,” Community Development Commissioner Bill Hagerty said. “Tennessee’s advanced transportation and logistics infrastructure paired with the state’s superior workforce will certainly aid in Under Armour’s future success. I appreciate the company’s decision to locate and invest in Mount Juliet and for further enhancing the extraordinary momentum behind the Tennessee brand.”

“TVA and Middle Tennessee Electric congratulate Under Armour on its decision to select Mount Juliet as a new distribution center location,” TVA Senior Vice President of Economic Development John Bradley said. “We are proud to be partners with the state of Tennessee, the Joint Economic Development Board of Wilson County, the Nashville Area Chamber of Commerce, Mount Juliet and Wilson County officials to welcome and support Under Armour as a major new employer in the Tennessee Valley.”
