Savannah, Ga. – Floor and Decor recently celebrated the opening of a new distribution center. At 1.4 million sq ft, it is the second largest distribution center in the major Southern port city of Savannah, Ga.
The new Floor & Decor facility sits on a 90-acre site within the Morgan Business Center, a 250-acre park in the western suburb of Bloomingdale. The complex has convenient truck and rail access to the busy Port of Savannah, approximately 11 miles away.
The new, state-of-the-art facility in the Morgan Business Center incorporates modern features that will help Floor and Decor facilitate product storage and more-efficient distribution to its retail stores in the eastern U.S.
With 30 new positions and the retention of the 55 jobs that are shifting over from the former Floor and Decor distribution center, plus another 47 positions at Floor and Decor's 68,000-sq-ft Savannah retail store and design center, the Atlanta-based company now employs an estimated 132 people in the Savannah area.
The opening ceremony brought together officials from all the key entities involved in the transaction that resulted in the new Floor and Decor facility, including the Savannah Economic Development Authority; the State of Georgia; the City of Bloomingdale; the Georgia Ports Authority; CBRE Group Inc., which worked with Floor and Decor on the project; and Duke Realty, which has been in charge of development of the new distribution center complex.
