Standard Textile Co., Inc., a global leader in the hospitality and healthcare textile markets, announces it has entered into an agreement with commercial real estate developer and design-builder Al. Neyer to begin construction of a distribution center in Hebron, Kentucky.
The distribution center will service institutional customers located in the Midwest and Northeast regions as well as service its growing online retail business in North America. An Outlet Store is also included in the design and will be open to the public. Space will also be available for sublease.
“The company’s decision to build a new distribution center supports our long-term growth strategy,” said Gary Heiman, President & CEO of Standard Textile. “We expect this new facility will enhance our supply chain efficiencies and provide convenient access to our new Outlet Store.”
“We are thrilled to partner with an outstanding company like Standard Textile to help support their plans for long term growth,” said Ryan Reardon, Vice President of Real Estate Development with Al. Neyer. “We feel a strong connection to Northern Kentucky and are excited to deliver another first class industrial building to help meet the strong demand in the airport submarket.”
Standard Textile currently operates a distribution center in Hebron, Kentucky and plans to transition all operations to the new, larger facility. The company has been piloting an Outlet Store at its current location and has experienced increasing demand for its premium bedding, bath, and home textile products.
Construction of the new distribution facility is planned to begin in February 2020 with the facility expected to be operational by February 2021. The new distribution facility will also be located in Hebron, Kentucky.
