S&S Activewear Locates Shipping-Distribution Hub In Olathe, Kansas
"The additional Midwest warehouse puts us over 1.5 million sq. ft. of inventory, with a big portion of that inventory in the most accessible region of the country. It will give our customers a larger overnight delivery area with later cut-off times," said Margaret Crow, Director of Marketing at S&S Activewear. "It will also have a positive impact on our service level in Bolingbrook by shifting some of that volume to Kansas City. We're always working to improve our shipping speed and accuracy and this is an important step in that direction."
This new location will expand the company's one-day ground shipping transit area to include Kansas, Missouri, Oklahoma, North Texas and part of Colorado.
"Adding S&S Activewear to the area is yet another proof point that our Kansas City region is an ideal location for distribution and logistics centers," said Tim Cowden, President of the Kansas City Area Development Council. "We are thrilled with their decision to locate in our region and create 200 jobs after considering other markets across the Midwest."
The Kansas City Area Development Council partnered with the following organizations to successfully attract S&S Activewear to the KC region: Olathe Chamber of Commerce; Kessinger/Hunter & Co., LC; Johnson County Community College; IMKO Workforce Solutions; QPS Employment Group; Kansas Workforce Partnership, KCP&L, KC SmartPort and Kansas Department of Commerce.
