Last Updated On: 09/30/2019
Bolingbrook, IL based distributor, S&S Activewear has relocated its operations from its 450,000-square-foot distribution center in Bolingbrook to a brand new 750,000- square-foot sustainability-focused distribution center in nearby Lockport, IL.
S&S designed the Lockport distribution facility to support its mission of providing customers with increased access to the latest fashion-forward styles while remaining committed to sustainability.
“This was a wonderful opportunity to build a facility in line with our mission and values statement, which include sustainability objectives,” says S&S Activewear COO Frank Myers. “When we look at any greenfield project, we define a spec that includes all the details and features we require, ranging from more traditional operational items to important energy and sustainability features.”
Myers further added, “There’s no question consumers across all end markets expect their supply chains to be more environmentally focused. The brands we partner with are focused on sustainability, as are we. Our company values having fun—and a big part of that is enjoying the outdoors with our friends, families, vendors, and customers. As a company, we’re inspired to operate more responsibly and preserve our environment for future generations.”Read More...
