Badcock to locate new distribution center to LaGrange

ATLANTA — W.S. Badcock Corp., one of the largest privately held furniture retailers in the United States, last week said it will construct a new regional distribution center in LaGrange, investing $22 million and employing more than 100.

“Badcock’s new regional distribution center is an excellent addition to Troup County,” Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal said in a news release. “This expansion is a testament our state’s top-ranked business climate, and I have no doubt that Georgia’s skilled workforce and globally recognized logistics infrastructure will support future growth and success.”

The 535,000-square-foot facility will be located at the Callaway South Industrial Park in LaGrange and is scheduled to open in the third quarter of 2015. The project will include enhanced energy efficiency technologies and is designed for expansion to 700,000 square feet. This facility will replace two existing facilities in Thomson and Cullman, Ala.
