Grocery retailer Lidl will construct a $100 million regional distribution center in Newton county, Georgia. The location will create 270 full-time jobs.
“Our logistics infrastructure puts domestic and international markets within arm’s reach, and leading brands from around the world are taking notice. As the No. 1 State for Business for seven years running, Georgia’s ability to support international companies looking to expand their U.S. footprint is unmatched,” Gov. Brian Kemp said in a statement.
The 925,000-square-foot facility will serve as a region headquarters and will supply products to Lidl stores across the region.
“We look forward to breaking ground on Lidl’s fourth regional distribution center in the U.S. and hiring hundreds of new team members in Georgia,” said Lidl US Chairman Roman Heini. “This centrally located facility will allow us to efficiently deliver outstanding quality products to our customers at the lowest possible prices and expand our network of stores across the region. We thank Gov. Brian Kemp and local leaders for their tremendous support during this process.”
Construction is expected to be completed within the next two years.
