From Area Development Magazine:
“We look forward to providing high-quality job opportunities for many years to come in the new state-of-the-art facility we are building. We would also like to thank Hillwood and look forward to working with them to build the new facility. At Helen of Troy, we pride ourselves on being a part of the communities in which we live and work. We encourage and support our associates to stay actively involved in their communities, and we welcome the opportunity to be a part of Gallaway’s continued growth and success. Having grown our sales by more than 60 percent since we launched our Transformation Plan seven years ago to over $2 billion, this new distribution center is a critical project to catch up with our expansion and deliver on our future growth strategies with greater scale and efficiency. The new facility expands our distribution operations in the region, allowing us to re-optimize our existing facilities to better fit the specific needs of each of our business segments as we serve our retail and direct-to- consumer customers.” […]
