Mizuno USA, a global leader in sports apparel, footwear and equipment, has announced the relocation of its distribution facilities and manufacturing operations to a new 520,000 square-foot facility in Braselton.
"Mizuno USA has seen strong growth, tripling sales since 2000," said Bob Puccini, President of Mizuno USA, Inc. and Director of Mizuno Corporation. "Our growth expectations are even higher for the next five years with award-winning innovations and increased spending in brand marketing initiatives. This investment is a critical next step for our business to be able to service the omni-channel supply needs of our customers and consumers."
The new facility will merge Mizuno's two distribution center facilities to serve all Mizuno USA divisions, running, golf, team sports, and move the golf manufacturing center from Norcross, Ga. Current Mizuno employees will transition to the new facility in late 2014 following building renovations. The manufacturing and distribution center will have 150 full time positions and bring seasonal work opportunities starting in 2015.
Mizuno USA corporate offices will remain in Norcross.
