The ADUSA Supply Chain network expanded again on July 17, with the first shipments departing from a new distribution campus in Mauldin, South Carolina, bound for area Food Lion stores. The launch of shipping from the new campus marked its official opening.
The distribution center, acquired from C&S Wholesale Grocers in May, is now one of the largest in the ADUSA Supply Chain network, and when fully operational will fulfill grocery, fresh, frozen, health and beauty care and break pack for nearly 200 grocery stores. Dairy, fresh and frozen products are the first to begin shipping from the site.
“The opening of the Mauldin distribution campus is another important step forward in our work to transform the ADUSA supply chain network, deepening our distribution reach into the Southeast,” said Chris Lewis, president of the ADUSA Supply Chain. “Continuing to expand the network infrastructure is core to our ability to serve brands like Food Lion that trust us to always deliver so they can be there for their customers with fresh, in-stock products whenever, wherever, however they want to shop.”
In Mauldin and across 17 other network locations, the supply chain network continues to actively hire to support its growth. Since May, more than 250 associates have been hired and onboarded at the campus, which will ultimately employ more than 800 in the local community. The 1.1 million-square-foot campus consists of nine buildings and a sizable training and conference center.
“It’s a great time to join ADUSA Distribution and ADUSA Transportation,” said John Patriquin, SVP. “There is a great deal of investment going into the supply chain, and we pride ourselves on a culture of care for our people. We truly believe our associates, who have served on the front lines during the pandemic, are today’s superheroes. We are actively hiring in Mauldin and at all of our other East Coast locations. We invite interested applicants to visit our jobs site and come grow a career with us.”
