Walmart will invest $41 million and create 400 full-time jobs at a new facility in Shepherdsville, Bullitt County, Kentucky, dedicated to fulfilling online orders from Walmart.com and Walmart subsidiary Jet.com.
The company will lease a 720,000-square-foot building in the Velocity 65 trade center on Velocity Way off of I-65. In addition to full-time permanent workers, the facility will eventually employ several hundred temporary workers, including seasonal employees. The company plans to open the center later this fall.
“This new facility will soon be serving even more Walmart.com and Jet.com customers with fast shipping in two-days or less, and we’re thrilled we found a home for it in Bullitt County,” said Nate Faust, svp/supply chain, Walmart e-commerce U.S. “We look forward to opening for business and to a long relationship with the people of Kentucky and Shepherdsville.”
