New Jobs & Growth For FIDELITONE in Tennessee
Wauconda, Illinois, September 9, 2015 - FIDELITONE, a national supply chain management firm headquartered in Wauconda, IL, began consolidation of its Order Fulfillment distribution centers in Tennessee to Elizabethton.
Operations at the Elizabethton location commenced in August, and FIDELITONE was pleased to host Mayor Curt Alexander, City Council members and local media at the company’s welcome luncheon last week.
During the luncheon Josh Johnson, COO for FIDELITONE, shared what attracted FIDELITONE to the area. “Elizabethton offers a great community for our employees as well as skilled labor to help support FIDELITONE’s growth plans.” In 2015, FIDELITONE increased order volume by 40% and has plans for continued growth in the coming years. The company began the year with 100 employees in Tennessee and has plans to end the year with nearly 200.
Mr. Johnson added, “For our clients, there are both service and economic benefits. Elizabethton provides FIDELITONE the ability to ship to any zip code on the East coast in 1-2 days by ground rates.“ The consolidation also gives FIDELITONE the ability to have all Tennessee operations and employees under one roof. It provides economies of scale for FIDELITONE, brings unity to the team and increases the warehouse size needed for employee and client expansion.
FIDELITONE’s new Tennessee location is at 100 FIDELITONE Way, Elizabethton, TN 37643. The phone number is (800) 385-1964.
