Marucci Sports, the Louisiana-based sporting goods brand, continues to expand its footprint, reported it will develop a 100,000-square-foot, Class A distribution center—a focal point of the new Rivermark 185 Industrial and Logistics Park, located on Industrial Drive and Hwy 30 in Geismar, LA.
The company said it had outgrown its distribution capacity on Siegen Lane and would improve operating efficiency and improve production.
“This expansion is vital in developing success. This new facility will allow us to gain efficiencies and fuel our mission of getting the best gear into the hands of today’s elite athletes,” said Kurt Ainsworth, co-founder and CEO, Marucci Sports.
The company’s headquarters will remain on McCann Drive, flanked by the Marucci Clubhouse, a baseball and softball training facility and retail store, facing Siegen Lane. Product testing and innovation will remain at headquarters, with the addition of its Baseball Performance Lab and Marucci’s wood bat manufacturing operation.
Louisiana remains the hub for Marucci’s family of brands. It acquired Victus Sports in 2017, Carpenter Trade in 2018 and Lizard Skins in 2021.
