INDIANAPOLIS -

California-based ALOM is Thursday celebrating the opening of its new state-of-the-art facility, tripling its warehouse space in Indianapolis just two years after opening its first fulfillment hub.

The supply chain management company says it plans to increase employment by 25 percent as a result of the expansion.

“We chose Indianapolis as our Midwest operations center because of its welcoming business community, proximity to our growing customer base, and excellent logistics infrastructure,”  ALOM President and Chief Executive Officer Hannah Kain said in a press release when the company broke ground on this project earlier this year.

Kain says with an abundance of logistics support, ALOM can reach 80 percent of the contiguous U.S. within two days. The new facility will help further support its e-commerce and retail channel fulfillment clients.

“In two short years we have outgrown our first location and now are excited to be expanding into a new, perfectly configured facility that provides us with the capacity to serve existing and new customers with enhanced levels of service,” said Kain. 

Kain says the new facility was designed to add capacity and process automation to service its customers which includes automotive, technology, medical device and retail industries.

Inside INdiana Business will be attending the ribbon-cutting. We'll have coverage in Thursday's INside Edge.
