S&S Activewear finds the right fit for new jobs in the Kansas City area
KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Promotional apparel wholesaler S&S Activewear is opening a new, Kansas City-area distribution center in Olathe, Kansas. The facility, which will be the company’s fourth distribution center nationwide, will create 200 jobs.
“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. It will give our customers a larger overnight delivery area with later cut-off times,” said Margaret Crow, director of marketing. “It will also have a positive impact on our service level in Bolingbrook by shifting some of that volume to Kansas City. We’re always working to improve our shipping speed and accuracy and this is an important step in that direction.”
Opening in the spring of 2016, the shipping and receiving facility is 473,000 square feet, expanding the company’s 1-day ground shipping transit area to include Kansas, Missouri, Oklahoma, North Texas and part of Colorado.
