Executives from Dunham’s Sports joined with Marion and Grant County officials in turning dirt Tuesday to begin the construction of a new Distribution Center for the company near I-69 and State Road 18.
The 750,000 square foot facility will create needed space for the company’s current staff, plus the company plans to add up to 135 new jobs within the next few years.
Dunham’s C-E-O Ken Mahan says success in the company brought about the need for the new facility...plus staying in Marion was an added bonus.
Mahan says he’s already looking forward to growing even more at the Marion facility in the coming years. He says the current site will allow for future growth that could add another 250-thousand square feet at some future date.
Dunham’s hopes to move into the new distribution center within about eight months.
