Lowndes County - Hundreds of trucks load up at this Lowe's Distribution Center each day, and soon, traffic will be even busier. "This is an expansion so we can serve more stores and bring more product through this distribution center to our stores," said Steve Szilagyi.
Wednesday, the home improvement company announced a 20 million dollar expansion at the Lowndes County distribution center. The facility will nearly double in size, and about 100 new employees will be hired to take care of the extra workload. "We need folks that are trained to operate forklift equipment, computer equipment, to move product and receive off of trucks," said Szilagyi.
When construction is complete, this will be one of Lowe's largest distribution centers in the nation. They'll ship products to hundreds of stores in the southeastern United States. "We've got an outstanding workforce here, some of the best people in the country, and we felt like expanding here and adding to this existing facility and workforce was a sure bet rather than building another distribution center somewhere else," said Szilagyi.
City and county leaders say the expansion project will be a huge economic boost for this area, and they're hoping it will start a chain reaction of new business. "With their expansion, the need for other businesses that support them comes, they have a need for mechanics, terminals and freights, more restaurants coming in, its a ripple effect," said Ken Garren, Industrial Authority Director.
Construction on the expansion project will start in the next few weeks and should be finished by spring.
