Clarks to Build U.S. Logistics Center

The Clarks Cos. N.A. will build a new logistics center in the U.S. that will increase production volume.

The company announced Thursday that the facility will be located in Hanover, Pa., across the street from its current center, and is expected to be completed in two years. Thanks to state-of-the-art technology, the center will have the ability to produce 50 million pairs of shoes annually.

“In the end, we will have a new facility and updated operations that will allow us to be increasingly responsive and flexible in servicing our customers and consumers,” James Salzano, interim president, said in a press release.

The new center also will follow Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design regulations in an effort to create an environmentally responsible building.

Clarks is slated to break ground on the center later this summer.
