A M King partnered with ALDI U.S. to provide property consulting, design and construction of ALDI’s new divisional headquarters and distribution center in Loxley, Ala. The 570,660-square-foot facility will service more than 100 stores in southern Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, and the Florida panhandle.
“ALDI and A M King have a long and successful relationship,” says A M King V-P of operations Dan Crist. “A M King’s full property consulting services were instrumental to ALDI as the company was contemplating a Gulf Coast expansion. We were charged with site selection and due diligence and once the site was identified, ALDI and A M King immediately moved forward with design and construction of the facility.”
