The location is in line with Goodman’s strategy to focus on infill locations close to consumers and is less than a mile from the 91 and 57 Freeways, and 20 miles from the Port of Los Angeles and Long Beach. It offers direct access to a population of 20 million consumers and can help facilitate fast delivery and lower transportation-related carbon emissions.
Joe Hurley, Chief Supply Chain Officer of Sprouts, said “This strategically located Distribution Center serving our Southern California Stores will facilitate fast and fresh deliveries for our 90+ current stores all within a 250-mile radius of the Fullerton Site.”
“The proximity to our stores also means lower transportation-related carbon emissions, decreasing approximately 725,000 miles annually from our current routes. This facility also features ripening room capabilities for bananas and avocados that continues to help better serve our communities with fresh produce.”
Anthony Rozic, CEO of Goodman North America said: “Goodman Logistics Center Fullerton is a great example of our global strategy to provide sustainable essential infrastructure for the digital economy. It’s strategic location, sustainability credentials, and the high caliber of customers from a range of industries that we’ve been able to attract, all demonstrate the flexibility of our offering and the long-term value we can bring to local communities.”
A sustainable building approach was undertaken to reduce environmental impacts during construction and operations, allowing this repurposed former paper factory to be developed into a modern LEED Certified development. The construction process involved recycling 95% of all existing on-site materials and reducing waste. Goodman Logistics Center Fullerton has incorporated renewable energy generation with 2.5MW of solar panels planned.
Employee health and wellbeing
Goodman Logistics Center Fullerton offers various employee amenities encouraging a healthy and active workforce. Features include outside break out areas and electric vehicle charging stations. The site is also close to world-class restaurants, shopping, Disneyland Resort, Downtown Fullerton, Honda Center, Anaheim Convention Center, Angel Stadium and California State University, Fullerton.
Mayor Fred Jung said” I am proud to welcome companies like Samsung, Sprouts, and Bandai Namco to the City of Fullerton. I want to thank Goodman, a terrific community partner, for building a job center of over 1.5 million square feet that is also an environmentally sustainable and LEED certified project. The Goodman Logistics Center in Fullerton will be the benchmark for what can be achieved when local government and responsible business partners commit to community development.”
