Orgill, Inc. will build a new world headquarters in Collierville, TN. Orgill, an independently owned hardlines distributor, will invest $15 million to construct a new 100,000-square-foot facility in east Shelby County and create 115 new jobs.
“Our company is excited to remain in Shelby County and to continue to do business in Tennessee,” said Orgill’s Chairman, President and CEO Ron Beal. “We have built a business here and relationships that we expect to last for years to come. I want to thank officials with the state and local governments for their assistance during this process.”
Founded in Memphis, TN in 1847, Orgill distributes hardware and home improvement products to customers in all 50 states, 10 Canadian provinces, and over 50 countries throughout the world. The world headquarters provides support to its six North American distribution centers and manages all business activities that extend beyond physical distribution.
Orgill plans to begin construction on the new office building in 2016, and expects to move into its new headquarters facility in the fourth quarter of 2017.
“We want to thank Orgill for its new investment in West Tennessee and its continued commitment to our state’s dedicated workforce,” said Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam. “It says a lot that Orgill is building a new world headquarters right here in our state and creating more than 100 new jobs in Shelby County.”
“Tennessee prides itself on being the top state in the nation for overall infrastructure and global access making it a great fit for a company like Orgill,” said Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development Commissioner Randy Boyd. “Orgill’s decision to not only remain in Tennessee, but to expand and build a new world headquarters in Shelby County will impact the community greatly while adding new jobs to the area workforce.”
