Canadian active apparel importer Gildan Activewear will close two U.S. warehouses, in Alabama and Virginia, and consolidate its operations in a new distribution center in Charleston, S.C., according to The Post and Courier newspaper.
Montreal-based Gildan paid $60 million for the 580,000 square foot distribution center, the newspaper said. The square footage does not include upper level mezzanines and office space. The facility, which is equipped with high-tech racks and a precision flooring system, will house about 200 employees by May.
