Ashley Furniture Industries plans to build a new regional distribution hub in Etna, OH, investing $70 million and creating 300 new jobs.
Hiring begins in late 2021, once the building is completed.
The new facility, located at 70 Global Parkway in Etna will expand Ashley’s national network of eight major distribution centers servicing the United States. At 1 million square feet, the warehouse will serve as global e-commerce fulfillment as well as store shipments.
“This is a major move to expand our warehouse capacity to support brick-and-mortar retail operations, as well as our e-commerce growth,” said Todd Wanek, Ashley president and CEO. “Providing access to nearly 50% of the U.S. population within a day’s drive, Etna’s location in Central Ohio is a strategic choice for Ashley. Our operations here will allow us to greatly expand our network and better serve customers across the country.”
