VF Corp creates 175 new jobs with new DC in PA
VF Corporation is opening a new $52M distribution center in Jonestown, PA next year, creating over 175 new jobs with the company over the next three years. Vans, The North Face and Timberland will ship out of the new DC.
Steve Rendle, VF’s Chairman, President and CEO cited the growth of the direct-to-consumer business as the driving force behind VF Corporation’s choice to opening the new DC. Rendle said the location was chosen because it will help VF Corporation “more quickly service our consumers in the Northeastern U.S.”
VF Corporation will begin its lease on a 500,000-square-foot location in July, 2018. The company plans to begin hiring in mid-2018 with a goal of being fully operational by early 2019.
VF Corporation anticipates hiring at least 175 people for full time positions in both the distribution center as well as in an adjacent office location. Jobs available will range from operations, HR, shipping and logistics, maintenance, safety, managerial and clerical roles.
VF Corp was originally founded in Pennsylvania. Governor Tom Wolf cited the state’s business climate and strong infrastructure as two reasons why Pennsylvania was a good match for VF Corp’s new DC.
