Levi Strauss Opens Depot In Hebron, Ky

San Francisco-based apparel marketer Levi Strauss & Co. (LS&Co.) recently celebrated the grand opening of a 151,000-square-foot product depot located near its distribution center in Hebron, Ky. The company-operated depot, which replaces a third-party managed facility, receives Levi's® and Dockers® products arriving from global manufacturing facilities and provides the distribution center with increased storage capacity. The depot will enable the company to more quickly distribute products to US-based retailers as well as to its company-operated US retail stores.

Following relocation in May, Levi Strauss added approximately 20 jobs at the depot and the distribution center. The company expects to add more than 40 jobs altogether in the next year or two as the depot reaches full capacity. 

"The new depot deepens Levi Strauss & Co.'s commitment to the Hebron community and creates new jobs for the area," said Robert Hanson, president, Levi Strauss Americas. "This grand opening is an occasion to celebrate our growth in Northern Kentucky and the strong partnership between LS&Co. and Workers United to provide union jobs in the region." Workers United - a trade union representing 150,000 workers in the United States and Canada - represents the approximately 600 employees at the company's distribution center.

"This new facility means additional good-paying union jobs for Northern Kentucky," said Bruce Raynor, president, Workers United. "It also continues to build the long and productive relationship that Workers United and Levi Strauss & Co. have enjoyed for more than 30 years."
