LOXLEY, Alabama — Retailer ALDI officially launched construction today on a new regional headquarters and distribution center in Baldwin County that will support the company’s expansion throughout the Gulf Coast region.
The project is set to bring approximately $100 million in capital investment, with plans to create more than 200 jobs in Loxley. ALDI announced its growth plans last July.
The 564,000-square-foot facility, opening next year, will become the company’s sixth distribution center in the Southern U.S., and it will be equipped to service up to 100 stores in Alabama, Southern Georgia, Mississippi, the Florida Panhandle and Louisiana.
“We’re proud to stand behind ALDI’s commitment to bringing value to the people of Alabama and the Gulf Coast region,” said Governor Kay Ivey, who attended a ceremonial groundbreaking today.
