Herbalife Nutrition is opening its doors and beginning shipment of its first orders from its newest distribution center in Hagerstown, Maryland.
The new 178,000 square foot facility will help meet the growing demand for the company’s nutrition products and will service the distribution needs for the Eastern and Northeastern regions of the United States (US).
The facility will employ approximately 85 people and contribute approximately $6 million annually to the local economy.
“Spurred on by years of growth as our distributors delivered valuable nutrition solutions to customers across the nation, our new distribution facility allows us to better serve our quickly expanding customer base, while also creating further efficiencies for the company,” said Mark Schissel, Chief Operating Officer for Herbalife Nutrition.
The Hagerstown facility, approximately 70 miles Northwest of Washington DC, will house approximately 144 unique product SKUs and will initially process around 40,000 orders per month.
The facility is the company’s third US distribution center, joining Los Angeles and Memphis.
