Oxford Industries Expands Lyons, Georgia, Distributions Operations

Oxford Industries, Inc., a high-end clothing and apparel company with brands like Tommy Bahama, plans to relocate and expand distribution operations in Lyons, Georgia. The $130 million project is expected to create 60 jobs in Toombs County.

The new facility, located on approximately a 50-acre site at Toombs Corporate Center, will be designed to support significant distribution and fulfillment capabilities for the company’s brands, while supplying additional capacity for future expansion.

“Toombs County has been a great place for Oxford for many years,” said Mark Kirby, Oxford’s Senior Vice President-Operations. “This expanded facility, with convenient access to Southeastern U.S. ports, will increase our output capacity from 7 million units a year to more than 20 million units a year with enhanced delivery speeds to service our customers. We are excited to make this large investment here and to provide opportunities for the great workforce we already have as we continue to shift business into Toombs County.”

Oxford is an international apparel design, sourcing, and marketing company that features a diverse portfolio of powerful lifestyle brands, over 300 company-owned retail stores and a strong e-commerce business. The company also has a complementary wholesale business through better department and specialty stores.

“Congratulations to the people of Toombs County and Oxford Industries on this exciting announcement,” noted Governor Brian Kemp. “Companies like Oxford can reach markets all across the country and world because of our reliable infrastructure network while creating opportunities for communities like Lyons to prosper. We’re thankful for the further growth they’re bringing to this part of our state.”

“We are thrilled Oxford Industries, Inc., chose Toombs County for this milestone business venture,” added Toombs County Development Authority Chairman Tim Truxel.
