New logistics centre for Ashley Furniture

American furniture company Ashley Furniture Industries has announced their plan to build a US$65 million logistics centre in Mesquite, Texas. The 80,000m² sprawling centre, which will be built in order to replace an existing 41,000m² centre currently in use, will be located on a plot of land the company recently acquired in the eastern side of the city measuring around 358 acres. When completed around June 2018, the centre will be staffed by approximately 350 employees.

Ashley Furniture generated an estimated US$3.3 billion in revenues in 2015. Presently, the company operates and maintains 15 logistics and manufacturing sites.
