Ebuys, Inc. will open a new distribution facility in La Vergne, TN. The global online shoe retailer will create approximately 160 new jobs as part of the expansion.
Ebuys employs about 180 employees at its existing distribution facility in Antioch. Driven by the need to expand Ebuys’ online fulfillment capabilities, the new 600,000-square-foot facility will be operational in February 2017. The project brings a local estimated capital investment of $38 million to Rutherford County, including the building, land and personal property.
“This is an online fulfillment facility where speed and accuracy are key,” said David Duong, CEO of Ebuys. “The Industrial Park in La Vergne stood out with access to major markets, proximity to interstate highways and a ready workforce. Our collaboration with the Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development, the Tennessee Valley Authority and the community also contributed to our final decision to invest in the city of La Vergne.”
“Ebuys’ decision to expand in Tennessee showcases why companies pick our state for their distribution needs,” said Gov. Bill Haslam. “Our central location offers businesses tremendous access to markets all over the U.S. and our skilled, well-trained workforce is always up to task to help businesses meet the changing needs of consumers. I’d like to thank Ebuys for creating another 160 new jobs in Tennessee and bringing us another step closer to our goal of being the No. 1 location in the Southeast for high quality jobs.”
“During this administration, transportation and distribution companies have invested more than $3 billion in Tennessee and created more than 21,000 new jobs all across the state,” said Tennessee Economic and Community Development Commissioner Randy Boyd. “Ebuys has been a key part of this thriving sector, which is expected to continue to grow 12 percent during the next decade.”
