BOLINGBROOK, Ill.—S&S Activewear officially opens its Fort Worth, Texas distribution center. The new location also marks the largest distribution center in S&S’s lineup at 493,000 sq. ft. and boasts the company’s proprietary distribution technology.
“Our team was challenged to complete this project before the end of this year and we were determined to get it done,” says Mike Mannucci, director of operations at S&S. “Let’s just say I couldn’t be more impressed with the collaborative effort that went into this production.”

The company originally announced plans for the facility in May 2017, projecting a fourth-quarter open date. The distribution center provides one-day shipping to major Texas hubs like Dallas, Austin, and Houston, as well as neighboring states like Oklahoma. With shipping and receiving fully functional, the company says it aims to bring will call online for local customers in the first quarter of 2018.
The Fort Worth opening comes as the company closes out a busy year of expansion across the country. In late October 2017, S&S added a new location in Atlanta which it plans to open in the second quarter of 2018. More recently, the company released details on the relocation of its corporate office in Illinois to an updated facility.
"2017 has been an exciting year," states Jim Shannon, president of S&S. "With the addition of these two new locations we’re poised for tremendous growth in the years to come. We don’t take for granted all the hard work and dedication that’s brought us to this point. From our vendor partners to our customers, down to our amazing employees, we’re fortunate to work with such talented people.”
