Supply chain solutions provider Integrated Distribution Services, Inc. (IDS) announced plans to build a new fulfillment center and headquarters in Plainfield, Ind.
The new 450,738-square-foot fulfillment center is necessary to accommodate IDS' growing customer base and expanding transportation services. Scheduled for completion in early 2016, the fulfillment center will sit on 28.2 acres in the AllPoints Midwest development and will provide cutting-edge logistics and direct-to-consumer fulfillment.
"Due to our continued growth, we began looking for a facility for our expanded fulfillment operations, as well as accommodating our fast-growing transportation services group. Our Midwest location combined with our facilities in Salt Lake City, Utah, allow us to provide 2-day ground delivery service for our customers to 97% of the U.S. population. It was our desire to remain in the southwest submarket because of the transportation options available with I-70, I-465, Indianapolis International Airport and close proximity to the Avon intermodal yard," says Mark DeFabis, chairman. "A location in AllPoints Midwest allows us to continue to effectively serve our customers, retain our existing workforce and have access to a strong labor pool for future growth.”
IDS plans to hire an additional 71 employees by 2020.
