Sephora Americas announced that today marks the opening of its new, state-of-the-art distribution center in Perryman, Maryland. The 655,000-square-foot Mid-Atlantic Distribution Center facility will be the largest distribution center serving Sephora Americas. It is designed with a focus on environmental efficiency and sustainability, and the process to pursue LEED Silver Certification is underway.
"Our clients turn to Sephora not only for our vast product assortment, but also for our exceptional quality of service. As we continue to grow, our facilities must expand along with us in order to maintain a superior level of customer experience," said Martin Flaherty, Vice President of Logistics, Sephora Americas. "At the same time, we are very pleased to utilize the newest generation of technology and a range of sustainable practices and materials in order to minimize the impact of our operations on the environment, and we are also glad to be providing additional jobs in the local area.” Previously served through a smaller Maryland distribution center, with the opening of the new facility, clients east of the Mississippi will now experience more rapid service, stemming from enhanced order fulfillment processes and more efficient transportation. The facility provides jobs for 410 employees, and additional jobs will be created over the next several years.
