S&S Activewear's Texas Facility Is Now Open
S&S Activewear, Bolingbrook, Ill., is officially open for business in Fort Worth, Texas, with its new state-of-the-art distribution center. While the facility is fully operational for shipping and receiving, will-call orders are expected to become available in the first quarter of 2018. The Fort Worth location marks the largest distribution center in S&S’s fleet, and features all of its proprietary distribution center technology. The national wholesaler acquired the strategically placed building in May of this year, and has completed the build-out of the 493,000 sq. ft. facility in just under six months.
“Our team was challenged to complete this project before the end of this year, and we were determined to get it done,” said Mike Mannucci, director of operations for S&S Activewear. “Let’s just say I couldn’t be more impressed with the collaborative effort that went in to this production. There is nobody in our industry with a stronger and more focused operations team. Now it’s on to Atlanta.”
As part of its nationwide expansion, S&S announced this year that it would be coming to Fort Worth, Texas, and more recently, to Atlanta. The addition of these two new facilities brings S&S’s operational footprint to 3 million sq. ft. nationwide.
“2017 has been an exciting year”, said Jim Shannon, president of S&S Activewear. “With the addition of these two new locations, we’re poised for tremendous growth in the years to come. We don’t take for granted all the hard work and dedication that’s brought us to this point. From our vendor partners, to our customers, down to our amazing employees, we’re fortunate to work with such talented people.”
