S&S Activewear Announces New Location in Kansas City
Bolingbrook, Illinois-based S&S Activewear recently announced the addition of a fourth warehouse in the Kansas City metro area, complementing its existing locations in Bolingbrook, Ill.; Santa Fe Springs, Calif.; and Robbinsville, N.J. The new location will operate under the S&S Activewear brand and create 200 new jobs in the area.
Opening in the spring of 2016, the shipping and receiving facility is 473,000 square feet, expanding the company’s one-day ground shipping transit area to include Kansas, Missouri, Oklahoma, North Texas and part of Colorado.
“The additional Midwest warehouse puts us over 1.5 million square feet of inventory, with a big portion of that inventory in the most accessible region of the country,” said Margaret Crow, director of marketing for S&S Activewear. “It will give our customers a larger overnight delivery area with later cut-off times.
“It will also have a positive impact on our service level in Bolingbrook by shifting some of that volume to Kansas City,” Crow continued. “We’re always working to improve our shipping speed and accuracy, and this is an important step in that direction.”
Kansas City inventory numbers will appear along with the other location inventories on the company’s website. Customers will be able to order from any of the four distribution centers with their existing accounts.
