The fulfillment center, which is expected to add more than 400 full-time jobs by 2029, features some of the latest advancements in material handling equipment technology to enhance the luxury firm’s fulfillment operations. Moreover, the facility is expected to distribute an annual 22.2 million units and hold 4 million units in inventory for both retail and e-commerce.
With the aim to better serve West Coast customers, the North Las Vegas facility allows the company to sustain multi-brand fulfillment, meeting the needs of customers in a more sustainable and efficient manner, according to a press release.
“The opening of our newest full-scale fulfillment center here in North Las Vegas will equip us to continue stretching what’s possible for our brands, our people, and our customers,” said Joanne Crevoiserat, CEO of Tapestry, Inc.
“Moving at the speed of the consumer is an essential component of our business.
