Badcock Plans Georgia Distribution Center
Furniture retailer W.S. Badcock Corp., plans to invest $22 million to build a regional distribution center in LaGrange, Ga.
The facility will employ more than 100 people.
The 535,000-square-foot facility will be located at Callaway South Industrial Park in LaGrange and is scheduled to open in the third quarter of 2015. The project will include enhanced energy efficiency technologies and is designed for expansion to 700,000 square feet. This facility will replace two existing facilities in Thomson, Ga., and Cullman, Ala.
“We are very pleased with the cooperation from the officials in LaGrange,” said Mike Price, W.S. Badcock president. “Their progressive attitude and effective leadership were influential in our selection of the community. This is a significant project for our company, and we are delighted to make this investment here and become an integral part of LaGrange and Troup County. The new distribution facility is designed to handle distribution to our current network of locations and will also accommodate our planned growth of new stores.”
