Arbonne International (Irvine, Calif.), a developer and distributor of Swiss-formulated skin care products, is opening a 208,000 sq.-ft. state-of-the-art distribution center in Greenwood, Ind. The facility is currently being built out to accommodate Arbonne's highly automated distribution systems, which will achieve a 99.8% accuracy rate for more than 35,000 daily shipments. The center is expected to create 300 new jobs and will distribute Arbonne products to approximately two-thirds of the United States.
Richard Estalella, v.p. warehouse and distribution, says, "Arbonne has made the investment to incorporate the latest technology for automated distribution. It's the next generation of distribution and warehousing. Our employees are an integral part of the solution to achieve faster turnaround times. Our existing Irvine facility has recently been expanded and reengineered, but Greenwood will represent a much larger operation serving approximately two-thirds of the United States."
Carol Hukari, senior v.p. of operations added, "Arbonne has been experiencing explosive growth over the past several years. Our new facility is a critical addition to help us keep up with that growth and improve our ability to ship packages to consultants and their customers in a timely manner. This distribution center will help us provide targeted 3-day delivery, from time of shipment, to those in the Eastern half of the United States."
