With a $2 million investment, Le Creuset will expand its North American distribution center, located in Early Branch, SC, by an additional 93,000 square feet. The latest initiative follows a 116,000-square-foot expansion of the facility, which was announced in June 2011 and created 25 new jobs at the Hampton County site.
The current expansion will increase the facility to 300,000 square feet.
“This investment represents our continued commitment to the Lowcountry and South Carolina. Le Creuset is a beloved and dynamic consumer brand with a truly global footprint, and this expansion in Hampton County will directly fuel and support our aggressive growth plan over the coming years,” said Faye Gooding, CEO of Le Creuset Americas.
This is the fourth such expansion that Le Creuset has announced for its South Carolina location. The additional space will allow the company to service growing distribution in North and South America, as well as expand its e-commerce business, according to Le Creuset.
