British-based ASOS Expands Union City, Georgia, Fulfillment Center
The British-based company will upgrade its Fulton County facility, building automation throughout to streamline processes and meet the needs of the company’s growing U.S. customer base. More than 1,000 people are currently employed at the fulfillment center, located at 4505 Derrick Industrial Parkway in Union City.
“We were proud to make Union City our U.S. base three years ago and are excited to be building on that investment to develop our proposition for our 20-something U.S. customers even further,” said CEO of ASOS Nick Beighton. “Automation will help us to streamline our operation and create additional jobs and we’re very grateful to both State and local authorities for their strong support.”
Headquartered in London, UK, ASOS is a global, online fashion and beauty retailer servicing customers all around the world with a commitment to harnessing fashion as a force for good, with a focus on minimizing the industry’s impact on people and the planet.
“Georgia continues to capitalize on the rapid acceleration of e-commerce, and it’s exciting to work closely with companies like ASOS to generate jobs and investment opportunities across the state,” said GDEcD Commissioner Pat Wilson. “I extend my thanks to ASOS for their commitment to Georgia and to our partners across metro Atlanta who helped make this expansion a reality.”
“We are so pleased that ASOS will be investing in their metro Atlanta fulfillment center once again,” said Katie Kirkpatrick, President and CEO of the Metro Atlanta Chamber. “Our region is rich in resources that contribute to the success of supply chain and logistics operations: skilled workforce, solid transportation infrastructure, supply chain technology savvy, and business-friendly environment. ASOS’s decision to continue to invest in their Union City facility is a testament to how the strength of these resources drives economic success for businesses.”
