Cornwall’s Supply Chain Management (SCM) is expanding its massive distribution centre in the Cornwall Business Park with the addition of a new High Velocity Distribution Center (HVDC).
The HVDC will supply Walmart with their ambient grocery and their high velocity products.
“It is likely that this expansion will create additional employment opportunities,” said Mark Boileau, Manager of Cornwall Economic Development. “This is great news for the long term sustainability of SCM in Cornwall.”
“Cornwall is well positioned to meet the future needs of Walmart and SCM,” Boileau said. “We have just brought online another 260 acres of development lands in the Cornwall Business Park and have plans to expand the road network to accommodate new growth.”
Cornwall’s newest distribution centre is expected to open in late spring 2014.
HVDC positions will require forklift certification, and the company plans to source these positions both internally and externally.
