ALDI Breaks Ground on Regional Headquarters and Distribution Center in Loxley
Loxley, Ala. - ALDI, one of America's fastest-growing retailers, officially broke ground on February 10, 2021, for its new regional headquarters and distribution center in Loxley, Alabama. The upcoming 564,000-square-foot office and warehouse will support ALDI's growth throughout the Gulf Coast. The project is set to bring approximately $100 million in capital investment in Baldwin County, with plans to create more than 200 local jobs.
"We're proud to stand behind ALDI's commitment to bringing value to the people of Alabama and the Gulf Coast region," Governor Ivey stated. "We welcome the company's plans for a regional headquarters and distribution hub in Loxley that will create 200 good-paying jobs for our hardworking citizens."
The expansion is the grocery retailer's first step into Baldwin County, but ALDI currently operates 30 stores across the state of Alabama. The new Loxley facility will serve new ALDI stores in southern Alabama, Louisiana and throughout the Florida Panhandle.
"We are ecstatic that ALDI has chosen Loxley for their regional headquarters and distribution center location. We are eager for the new job opportunities that are to come for citizens as well as the economic growth and development for our community," said Loxley's Mayor Richard Teal.
"ALDI's decision to bring this facility to Baldwin County further cements our place as Alabama's leader for incoming business investment and growth," said Lee Lawson, president and CEO of Baldwin County Economic Development Alliance. "This first-class facility will create a diverse mix of both warehousing and white-collar jobs for our community, and we're excited to see construction begin," he added.
With plans to open the regional headquarters and distribution center in 2022, ALDI will seek new employees to begin operations. For more information about ALDI and job openings, visit aldi.us.
