The retail giant has announced its plans to expand its supply chain campus with a one-million-square-foot distribution centre to support its widening supply chain network.
Located in Baytown, Texas, at 4633 Borusan Road, the new facility is scheduled to open sometime between September and December this year. It will be Walmart’s fourth facility in Baytown, making the total square footage of the campus over five million square feet.
“Walmart is excited to expand our Baytown campus and another step in Walmart’s continued investment in the state,” said Mike Gray, SVP Supply Chain Operations, Walmart. “The Baytown campus and our other regional facilities continue to bring exciting new career opportunities within Walmart’s modern supply chain to hundreds of residents of the Houston area—all while helping us provide our local customers their everyday necessities with more variety and efficiency than ever before.”
Currently, the Baytown campus is searching for full-time employees to undertake specialised roles and leadership positions. Candidates can find out more information and apply via Walmart’s careers site.
“A highly skilled labour pool in the Houston area, and Texas more broadly, makes Baytown a prime destination for Walmart to continue expanding our supply chain network,” said Karisa Sprague, Senior Vice president, US Supply Chain People, Walmart. “We’re excited to continue to work with the community and government officials to bring new career opportunities to Southeast Texas.”
In Texas, Walmart operates 19 distribution centres, 593 retail stores and employs more than 185,000 associates.
