True Value Company has made a strategic investment of $150 million in supply chain optimization including a new distribution center in Hanover Township, PA.
The 1 million square feet of distribution space, currently under construction, is expected to create hundreds of new jobs in Luzerne County and support the entire northeast region which consists of more than 1,000 retail locations, the company said. The new distribution center is slated to open this fall.
“True Value is excited to make this substantial investment to develop a world class supply chain and distribution operation in Hanover Township,” said John Hartmann, president and CEO at True Value Company. “The new facility will help alleviate congestion in our other distribution centers, provide the highest in-stock rates and position our network to support our retailers’ growth with greater flexibility and service.”
True Value currently operates 13 distribution centers in Arizona, California, Colorado, Georgia, Illinois, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, and Texas.
