Sisler said the plans for the additional distribution center is in response to how Crocs has continued to grow.
“By year end hopefully we’ll be up and running in the new facility,” Sisler said.
Crocs distribution center expansion to the e-commerce companies that have made the Dayton area home for their distribution operations in recent years, with a concentration of newcomers in a series of centers built near the airport. Companies such as Amazon, Caterpillar, P&G, Meijer, Yaskawa Motoman Robotics and many others have anchored e-commerce and logistics operations in the area and some plan to do more.
The new distribution center will be 525,000 square feet, which is about the same size as the current distribution center.
“Crocs has been a great partner from day one and their continued growth is something we have been working on since they opened their doors,” Jeff Hoagland, president and CEO of the Dayton Development Coalition, said in a statement. “The continued collaboration with our public sector partners (Dayton and Montgomery County) and JobsOhio shows why companies continue to locate and grow in the Dayton region and Ohio.”
Layton said Crocs will be hiring across many positions, from warehouse associates, to equipment operators, to trainers and more.
