Walmart selects Spartanburg County for new distribution center

Walmart has announced plans to build a new, high-tech distribution center for fresh and frozen groceries in Spartanburg County, according to the governor’s office. The $450 million investment will create more than 400 new jobs in the supply chain. “The more than 720,000 square foot facility, located in Lehman, will rely on a combination of Walmart partners, automation technology, robotics and machine learning to process perishable grocery products — such as produce, eggs, dairy, flowers and frozen goods — and frozen goods,” the statement said. The company said the facility represents Walmart’s largest grocery distribution center to date and will transport twice as much product than a traditional grocery distribution center as well as introduce new technology-focused business opportunities in the region. The high-tech distribution center is part of a larger investment the retailer announced earlier this year to double the use of automation technology in its supply chain. The new distribution center is scheduled to open in 2024. Employment information will be shared as soon as the facility opens.

The Coordinating Council for Economic Development approved the appropriations for career development related to this project.
