New Warehouse Will Create 300 Jobs in McDonough Over the Next Four Years
Cushman & Wakefield has secured a 505,000-square-foot lease for S&S Activewear at Midland Logistic Center in McDonough, Georgia.
Britt Casey of Cushman & Wakefield of Illinois represented S&S Activewear in the lease negotiation, and Cushman & Wakefield Atlanta’s Strategic Consulting team secured incentives on behalf of the company. Lisa Pittman, Ray Stache and James Philpott of Cushman & Wakefield’s Atlanta office represented the landlord, Scannell Properties, in the transaction.
“The Atlanta facility marks critical progress in S&S's nationwide expansion,” said Frank Myers, COO of S&S Activewear. “The strategic location and sophistication of the new facility will allow us to provide our industry’s best service and product to our customers in the South East.”
The new warehouse, which is expected be operational in the second quarter of 2018, will create 300 jobs over the next four years, including warehouse, supervisory and management positions.
“As S&S continues its national expansion plan in a continuation of their desire to provide for better overall customer experiences, it became apparent that a regional distribution center in the Southeast was mandated,” Casey said.
“Our process, which was focused on the state of Georgia as well as adjoining states, ultimately determined that the real estate offerings, labor market and transportation routes within Henry County presented the best solution for S&S's growth,” he continued. “The final decision to place the operation in McDonough was impacted by all the above, and, in addition, the overall suitability of the Scannell facility for the operational needs of this valued client.”
S&S Activewear is a national wholesaler of imprintable apparel and stocks more than 60 brands.
“S&S conducted a thorough analysis of the Atlanta marketplace and ultimately decided that McDonough was the best location from a logistics and labor standpoint,” Pittman said.
