Under Armour plans to open a 1.3 million-square-foot e-commerce distribution and warehouse facility at Sparrows Point in Baltimore County, as part of the Tradepoint Atlantic redevelopment project. The facility will open in 2018.
This will be Under Armour’s fourth distribution facility in the U.S. and the second in the surrounding area of the company’s headquarters in Baltimore.
UA made the announcement with Maryland Governor Larry Hogan, Maryland Secretary of Commerce Mike Gill, Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz and Tradepoint Development Executive Vice President Eric Gilbert.
The establishment of the Sparrows Point distribution house was created in collaboration with state and local officials to employ approximately 1,000 employees in the Baltimore area once the facility is operating at its full capacity.
“Under Armour is a true Maryland success story, and this new e-commerce center is another way they are showing their commitment to our state and to the Baltimore region,” said Governor Hogan. “As a pivotal new tenant at Tradepoint Atlantic, Under Armour will play a big part in this site’s resurgence to a center of economic activity and trade. We applaud Kevin Plank and his team for the visionary decision to open their latest distribution house – and create 1,000 jobs over the coming years – right here in Maryland.”
