Das Companies, Inc. announced it has secured a brand new 200,000 square foot distribution center in Franklin, Kentucky.
Over the past several years Das has extended its already portfolio of 12,000-plus products to include a licensing agreement with Cummins Inc. that spans product categories, the establishment of Legion 9 Brands, and a focused ecommerce strategy.
The strategy of Das has fueled continued growth, therefore, driving this expansion. This location expands the logistical network of Das to four states and over 800,000 square feet of warehouse solutions.
The Franklin location will strategically service Das’ current customer base in Travel Centers, C-Stores, and Electronics & Specialty Retailers. It will also be utilized for its new Legion 9 Brands, a solution-based company that specializes in product development, category management, supply chain, marketing, and retail execution. The additional space will also allow Das to serve its customers with the new-to-market Cummins Licensed Merchandise that is entering retail locations this summer.
This investment will create over 100 supply chain jobs in the Franklin, Kentucky area. The new warehouse location will be fully functional by January 2023.
